According to a report from Variety today, The Flash is going back to the original series for its latest casting. Joining John Wesley Shipp from the original, but short lived, Flash series comes actress Amanda Pays. The striking thing about this casting announcement, however, is that Pays will play the same role she played in the 90’s series, Dr. Tina McGee! One big difference this time comes from the fact that her character will not work for S.T.A.R. Labs as she originally did, but instead a rival company that takes interest in Barry’s new powers.
“When we decided to bring Tina onto our version of ‘The Flash,’ who better to get than the amazing actress who originated the part?” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said. “Like with John Wesley Shipp, we are so proud and excited to have another actor from the original series join us on our new adventures for Barry Allen.”
There is currently no information on which episode she will debut on. Are you excited that the CW is adding these additional homages from the original series?
