'Flash' Star Candice Patton Dishes On Iris West's Fearlessness

'Flash' Star Candice Patton Dishes On Iris West's Fearlessness

Iris West’s fearlessness is just one of the things we love about her on The Flash.

Candice Patton, who plays the character on TV opened up to NKD mag‘s August issue about playing the iconic character.

“I was thrilled to be going in for a lead female role that isn’t traditionally played by an African-American,” Candice shared, remembering her original audition. “And deep down, I always wanted to be a part of some superhero show or film.”

“Iris is visibly fearless, even when she’s vulnerable,” she adds. “Strong women are capable of experiencing fear, but then choose to find the strength to move forward. That’ s what Iris does.”

On top of all those qualities, Iris is also incredibly loyal, which Candice says is probably the best part of her.

“She’ s loyal to Barry, to Wally, to her dad, and Team Flash,” Candice continues. “She doesn’t have powers but that doesn’t get in the way of her trying to contribute. I think she’s a character that both men and women can admire.”

The Flash returns this fall on The CW.

Candice Patton Says Iris West Won't Be Following Her Reporter Dreams in 'Flash' Season 4

Candice Patton Says Iris West Won't Be Following Her Reporter Dreams in 'Flash' Season 4

We’re going to see a very different Iris West than we’re used to when The Flash returns for season 4.

According to Candice Patton, she’s almost ditched her reporter dreams.

“I don’t think this season we’re going to see a lot of reporter Iris, which is a little disappointing to me,” she shared with Comic Book over the weekend.

“In terms of the traditional ‘Iris West, Ace Reporter,’ I don’t know that that’s a direction they’re going, I don’t know if we’ll ever get there.”

But, she will be taking over as a leader of Team Flash.

“She’s heavily involved at STAR Labs. She’s kind of the one overseeing everything, which is really cool,” Candice adds.

Candice also opened up about Iris’ relationship with Barry and where it will be when the show comes back.

Candice Patton & Danielle Panabaker Talk Iris Stepping Up & Caitlin Stepping Away For 'The Flash' Season 4

It looks like two of our favorite characters on television right now are going to having major changes ahead.

The Flash stars Candice Patton and Danielle Panabaker both opened up about what’s really ahead for Iris West and Caitlin Snow on the upcoming season.

For Iris, she’s stepping up on Team Flash.

“She’s kind of stepped up now that Barry’s gone,” Candice shared with ET.

“We see her kind of at the mantle, like, helping everyone fight crime in Central City. It’s really cool to see her in that role, and we’ll see a lot of that this season.”

But for Caitlin…if you missed the season three finale, Caitlin shred her Killer Frost persona and said goodbye to S.T.A.R. Labs and left Central City to focus on herself.

“I don’t know if we know that Killer Frost is gone, I think there’s still a lot of different places that it could go,” Danielle says. “Hopefully Caitlin’s strong, but we don’t know.”

But don’t count on her immediately being seen with a love interest: “Caitlin needs to take care of herself. She needs to get her own stuff right, she’s got some things to focus on.”

The Flash returns this fall on Tuesdays on The CW.

Star Candice Patton, who plays Iris West on the show, dished a little bit of what’s coming for the new season and what’s really going to happen with Barry and Iris’ relationship.

“We still don’t have Barry out of the Speed Force,” Candice shared with TVLine, and Iris is having a big issue with that.

She adds, “Iris is really struggling to deal with that, and she does it in her own way.”

So, will Iris have a bigger role within Team Flash at all? Candice can’t tell you — yet.

“That’s a very interesting question that I can’t really answer!”
