Season 5 of The Flash brings changes to the cast
If you haven’t watched through the Season 4 finale of The Flash, you may wish to skip this paragraph and go to the next. To recap, Season 4 left the cast with some changes that were surprising to many fans. The mystery girl, did end up being Nora, the daughter of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton). Tom Cavanaugh’s Earth-2 persona has left, and a new Harrison Wells will be coming onboard for the next season, leaving him another chance to explore his every changing character. And Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) and Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), who had telepathic powers during her pregnancy that helped defeat The Thinker, now have a brand-new baby girl, to add to their family which now consists of three adult children and one baby.
It is Cecile who the writers and producers have decided that the fans need to see more of next season. This could be interesting since we have no idea as of yet as to who the season’s big bad will be. c, the actress who plays Cecile, was just upped to season regular according to Deadline. This news picks fans up a little since Keiynan Lonsdale (Wally West) announced a few weeks ago that he would not be returning as a regular for either The Flash or Legends of Tomorrow.
Nicolet has played Cecile Horton, the Central City District Attorney, for the last several years. She was just seen a few times as a hard-hitting attorney willing to prosecute the metahumans that were brought down by The Flash and his team. The 44-year old actress’s character slowly made her way into Joe West’s heart, eventually leading to her recent relationship with West and their surprising pregnancy announcement, which allowed Nicolet to be seen more and more over Season 4. She starred in 20 episodes of the drama thus far and most of them were in this recent season.
Danielle Nicolet started her acting career back in 1991 when she guest starred on Family Matters. Most recently, other than her episodes of The Flash, she can be seen in Tyler Perry’s Acrimony, which also starred Taraji P. Henson. Nicolet, also starred with Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson in Central Intelligence. If you are looking for Nicolet on Netflix, she can be found in Deidra & Lancey Rob A Train.
Keiynon Lonsdale’s decision to not return to LOT or The Flash came earlier this month. He took to Twitter to make the announcement after Deadline broke the news. In his tweet, he said he loved playing Kid Flash and that he had learned so many lessons from the character but that he was ready for new adventures.
