"The Flash," a highly anticipated pilot and spinoff of "Arrow" on The CW, has cast Candice Patton as its female lead, Iris West.
《绿箭侠》备受期待的衍生剧《闪电侠》女主角Iris West已经找到了，她就是Candice Patton。
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Patton's Iris is the best friend of main character Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), otherwise known as The Flash. Having grown up together, Iris and Barry are expected to eventually become love interests.
The character of Barry Allen was introduced in two episodes of "Arrow" in December 2013. Based on the good reception of those installments, The CW canceled plans to air "Flash" as a back-door pilot. The show will instead get a stand-alone pilot that would air in the fall.
