Candice Patton Explains Why Iris Doesn't Realize Barry Loves Her on 'The Flash'

Candice Patton shines in the sun in this brand new photo from her feature in the December/January of Maxim magazine, on newsstands December 2.

The 26-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about The Flash, her character Iris, and being from Texas. Check it:

On Iris not realizing Barry is in love with her: “Listen, if a guy doesn’t grab me by the shoulders and say, ‘I want to date you,’ or ‘I want to kiss you,’ then I really don’t realize that he’s interested in me. Almost all guys are good at hiding their infatuations these days. And Iris has grown up with Barry always being there as a kind of brother figure.”

On her love for the Dallas Cowboys: “When I die, I want Tony Romo to be my pallbearer, so he can let me down one last time. I grew up in Dallas where football is everything.”

On not having a Texas accent: “I went to SMU, and my theater training included speech and voice class. They beat the accent out of you. But if you get me drunk, that accent comes out pretty quickly, and I’m y’all-ing all over the place.”
