A mystery girl has been hanging around Central City this season on The Flash, and theories abound about who she is and where (or when) she might be from. She's even got Barry's nervous babbling thing! As revealed before, Kennedy confirmed that there is more to her character and she will come back at least "one more time".
In the episode, Iris rocked a custom super suit - with boots that Patton picked herself! - but the 29-year-old actress confessed that there was one part of her speedster costume that took some getting used to: running around with her hair pulled back in a tight ponytail. She first made her entrance during the crossover episode "Crisis on Earth X" on Supergirl. "We've still got that article in 2024 we've got to deal with". As she sees it, Iris' true heroism is what she can accomplish without superpowers. The upcoming episode, titled "Run, Iris, Run", will see Barry's wife assuming the role of the Scarlet Speedster as she accidentally obtained the powers of The Flash. "She uses her heart and her intellect and her street smarts to help the team". Since then, she's appeared twice on The Flash, each in a scene where she has an awkward encounter with members of Team Flash. "I think Iris illuminates that on the show". Now that the episode is over and Barry's powers have been restored, star Candice Patton is opening up exclusively to ET about her whirlwind adventures on-set as a speedster, Iris' reignited passions for journalism and what's next for the newlyweds.
"For the character, [it was] really cool", Patton said. There's no school for acting in front of a green screen... Grant, god bless him, he was giving me tips.

They are not discounting the possibility of another arson attack and were talking about installing a fireproof letterbox'. She said the abuse, in Telford , Shrops, would not have happened had the victims been from different backgrounds.
"Just learning to run in front of a green screen...it's like your arms are moving, your legs are not", she explained, saying that Gustin gave her tips like "don't stand up straight and do it, because you're going to look ridiculous".
"Run, Iris, Run" was directed by Harry Jierjian and written by Eric Wallace, who's familiar to DC comic book fans as the writer of stints on Titans and Mister Terrific.
The Flash season 4 airs on Tuesdays on The CW.
