The Flash TV series is showing no signs of letting up when it comes to new characters, especially villains.

The very lovely Britne Oldford (above), best known for acting in Skins and American Horror Story, has been cast as Lashawn Baez. Fans may know that in The Flash comics a teleporting villain by the name of Peek-A-Boo (below) is really called Shawna Baez and, despite the slight name change here, it seems she’s the same character.

“Oldford will reportedly play the girlfriend to Micah Parker’s character, an Iron Heights inmate who convinces his significant other to break him out of prison and use her metahuman powers to pull off one last heist before leaving Central City for good.”

The Flash is back on January 20th

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
