According to TVLine.com, the relative newcomer has been cast in the recurring role of Jesse Quick, “a brilliant but quirky college student who gets caught up in the battle between The Flash and Season 2 Big Bad (the not-yet-cast) Zoom.”
“My ‘I just landed a kick-ass role’ face,” Violett captioned an Instagram photo of her celebrating about a week before the news was announced.

Be sure to tune into The Flash premiere on Tuesday, October 6 @ 8/7 on The CW.
According to EW, the 30-year-old German actor has been cast as Carter Hall – aka Hawkman – for the upcoming DC show on The CW.
He will first appear on the crossover episodes of Arrow and The Flash.
The mag describes his character as “the latest reincarnation of an Egyptian Prince who is fated to reincarnate throughout time along with his soulmate, Kendra Saunders (Ciara Renee). Like Kendra, Carter can access the powers of the Hawk God, Horus, transforming him into the winged warrior known as Hawkman.”
“One of the many things that makes #TheFlash so special is @armenvfx & his team. Not surprised at all that they just got #TheFlash an Emmy nom. MUCH deserved. What they do is no joke & I believe it takes our story telling to a level not seen on TV before. THANK YOU & CONGRATULATIONS. This makes me very proud. TEAM FLASH!” he wrote, along with a screencap of their Emmy nom.
He also shared a cute snap of the cast posing while on set.
Tonight marks the end of the day-we-say perfect first season of The Flash in what is being described as an “epic” finale.
We recently caught up with stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton and Carlos Valdes at the network’s Upfront presentation where they teased what we can expect for the finale and the show going into season two!
Check out 5 mini teasers below and be sure to watch The Flash TONIGHT, May 19 @ 8PM on The CW!
1. On Barry’s mission: Grant: “He’s caught Wells. He’s in the containment cell, in the pipeline. Barry feels a little empty after catching him still. It feels incomplete and he lets Wells get into his head a little bit, and manipulate him in the finale again. It sends him down this road that…Barry feels like he made these decisions on his own, but they were kind of Wells’ decisions. And Barry makes the decision to go back and save his mom on the night she was murdered.”
2. On Barry and Iris: Grant: “I think everything’s on the table now. Iris knows Barry is The Flash. She also knows that Barry has these feelings for her. And Barry knows Iris has these feelings for him, but she’s still not wanting to open up about that. She’s still with somebody and Barry respects that. And Barry is more focused right now on his family, even though that does include Iris and Joe in some ways. I think there are just so many things happening that Barry is really focused on his mom and dad.”
Candice: “The thing about Iris and Barry, and even Iris and Joe, is that they’re family and you can only stay mad for so long. The love that those three have for each other kind of overcomes even that huge lie. I think Iris had her moment to be angry, and she was justified being as angry as she was, and I don’t think we need to see that much more. She got everything out and she can try to move on.”

“Had a wonderful morning at CW Upfronts! @CW_network @CW_TheFlash. Time for Netflix and snaaaccckkksss,” Candice wrote on Twitter after the annual event, and after getting in the best selfie ever from Arrow star Emily Bett Rickards.
Emily captioned, “I kidnapped them all.”
