According to Deadline, Michelle Harrison (Paycheck)has been cast in the recurring role of Barry Allen’s mother, Nora Allen, in The CW’s upcoming Arrow spin-off The Flash.
But didn’t Grant Gustin as Barry spoke about his mother’s death in his debut episode of Arrow? Will she appear as a flashback? Or maybe something else?
The cast includes Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Iris’s father, Detective West, Rick Gosnett as Central City Police Detective Eddie Thawne aka Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon aka Vibe, Danielle Panabaker as S.T.A.R. Labs bioengineer Caitlin Snow aka Killer Frost, Tom Cavanagh as S.T.A.R. Labs CEO Harrison Wells and John Wesley Shipp, from the original The Flash TV series, in an unspecified role.
The Flash arrives from co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg who, along with Geoff Johns, will write the pilot episode with Arrow pilot director David Nutter at the helm.
