Candice Patton & Grant Gustin Open Up About WestAllen's 'Iconic' Relationship on 'The Flash'

We’re all in agreement that Barry Allen and Iris West are the best couple in the DC fandom, yes? Well, if you aren’t loving them, you should be.

Candice Patton and Grant Gustin sat down with ET to explain just why WestAllen IS the best couple.

“They’re so steadfast,” Candice shared. “[They've been together] since childhood, and I think there’s something really endearing about that. Everyone wants that, everyone wants a relationship [with] someone that you can count on and trust and to tell you the truth and I feel like Barry and Iris have that. They’re kind of just like an ideal couple.”

Grant adds that together, they’re the definition of an iconic couple.

“Obviously, it’s an iconic couple, but I feel like, kind of from the very beginning, she’s her own version of Iris and I’m my own version of Barry,” Grant says. “As a couple, it’s a very different version of Iris and Barry from the comic. I think the trajectory of the relationship was different and so.. it’s been great from the beginning.”

“I find working with Grant very easy,” Candice dished later on. “The work when we’re together, especially scenes alone, just comes very naturally and has a fluidity to it.”

“I don’t know it’s probably one of the bigger joys for me working on this show is doing those scenes.”

See, WestAllen IS the best.

The Flash returns in October on The CW.
