Tom Felton Will Bring His Magic Touch
"The Flash" is bringing a little magic to Season 3. Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the "Harry Potter" films, weighed in on the big revelation, has signed on to play series regular character Julian Dorn, "a fellow CSI at the Central City Police Department who suspects there's more to Barry Allen than just his good guy reputation."
The character sounds similar to one described in an earlier report, which revealed that "The Flash" was looking to cast "Barry's slightly older, slightly geekier contemporary, a guy who is as smart as he is intuitive. As such, this newcomer doesn't buy Barry's nice guy routine and sets out to learn what he's hiding -- all while concealing some secrets of his own."
Felton's casting has been met with a lot of enthusiasm from fans. Felton thanked fans for the outpouring of support on his Instagram, writing, "Thank you for all your kind words today. See you in a flash. The Flash."
At SDCC, Felton described his character Julian Dorn's relationship with Barry Allen as "slightly abrasive." He also said that, while Julian will know Barry through years of working together, Barry will not be familiar with Julian due to his newness in the Flashpoint timeline.
