Before she was an intrepid reporter covering the rise of Central City’s Scarlet Speedster The Flash’s CANDICE PATTON was always a certified “fangirl” and she’s proving it in this exclusive interview with Fangirling…
From the moment she stepped into the shoes of Iris West on The Flash Candice Patton assumed the inevitable responsibility that went along with the very iconic character that has been a part of the DC Comics’ mythology since her Silver Age introduction. Patton made it very clear she had little interest in playing Central City’s lead reporter as a damsel in distress, but positioned Iris as a hero all of her own.
Entering into the Fourth Season of The CW hit series, Iris took a more formidable role as the leader of “Team Flash” and since marrying her one-true love, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) she’s continued to play a pivotal role in The Flash’s adventures and even wielded the power of the Speed Force for a recent episode. Now the actress shares with Fangirling in an exclusive interview her own experience empowering and inspiring other young women as a role model in entertainment.
