Last month, it was announced that The Flash would be bringing one of the most iconic characters from the mythology, into the new season as Keiynan Lonsdale will be portraying Wally West and will be a series regular on the show in the second half of season two. In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Lonsdale was asked about what it’s like joining a show like The Flash as Wally, teasing a bit on how he will be related to the Wests as well as meeting Candice Patton who plays Iris West. You can check out the full interview below.
It will definitely be interesting to see how they do the West relation as well as Wally eventually becoming Kid Flash one day on the show. While it hasn’t been confirmed exactly which episode he will debut in, we speculate that it might be as early as the winter premiere of The Flash after the Christmas hiatus. But once again, nothing has been said yet, but Lonsdale will start filming his scenes next month in Vancouver where they are currently filming or about to start filming episode 7.
