SDCC 2019: The Flash Stars Discuss What’s in Store for Season Six [Guest Poster: Kay-B]

Ready for The Flash to make its season six premiere? Well never fear, Just About Write was on hand at San Diego Comic-Con to get the scoop on all things season six with Tom Cavanaugh (Harrison Wells/Reverse Flash), Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin Snow/ Killer Frost), and Hartley Sawyer (Ralph Dibney/Elongated Man). So, strap in and get ready for a few tidbits to prepare you for a riveting season ahead!

On the favorite Wells to portray thus far and what we can expect from this season’s latest edition, Tom said: “I liked in season three when Harry and HR would do scenes together.  HR loved Harry, and Harry couldn't stand HR. That was so much fun to play. Last season, I thought wouldn't it be great if within the actual story that we're telling, the overarching story, we had that kind of dynamic and so that became Sherloque Wells trying to track down the Reverse Flash, and figure out who was helping Nora (Jessica Parker Kennedy) and that was a delight to play. And this year, the new Wells will be a swashbuckling bit of an adventurer. Living a life of intrigue, possibly deceit and maybe a little sensuality.”

Danielle Panabaker talked about Killer Frost this year and that new costume reveal, saying: “I think this season, we're going to get to see Killer Frost take charge a little bit more. You know, she's going to get to sort of take the wheel and make some decisions. Caitlin's going to take a break. I really loved the dynamic between Caitlin and Killer Frost that we got to explore last season. But this season, I think we’re going to get to see a little bit more of Killer Frost’s interactions with the rest of Team Flash.”

Danielle continued: “We actually started working on that costume about a year ago, and the intention was for it to be in season five, but the timing never worked out. I was obviously disappointed at the time, but I am excited that it’s finally out there now. And I'm really in love with this costume too. There were a lot of things that I really wanted. You know, there's some images to comic books, which I love I mean, Godspeed episode as well. I tried to do a video Hodges go to the pilot, there was never, it never worked out for it to appear in season five, which obviously I was very disappointed at a time. But I'm excited that it's finally out there now. And I'm really, I love this too.”

On Ralph’s character and evolution thus far, Hartley said: “When I auditioned to play Ralph, I did more of the Tex Avery walking cartoon character side of things, which I have a lot of fun doing. I love playing the slapstick comedy stuff with Ralph and I also love the way he is now. I always saw Ralph as kind of a bit more fully formed, and he's going to evolve even more. Ralph is a lot more complex than people realize, but I think there's so much to dig in with that guy. And there's such a rich comic book history, and so much progression to do, including being a detective, a superhero, and all the elements he brought last season. There’s so much more progression we can do though!”

We’ll just have to wait and see how Bloodwork compares to Reverse Flash when this season of The Flash premieres Tuesdays only on The CW!
