Hollywood, Hollywood News

Vanessa Williams has been cast as Iris West’s mother on CW’s “The Flash.”

The character is played by Candice Patton, whose father, and thus, Vanessa Williams’ would-be husband on the show, is played by Jesse L. Martin (aka Joe West).

Williams will make her debut on the hit superhero drama series during its upcoming second season which kicks off next week Tuesday, Oct 6 at 8pm.

Fans of the series will know that the whereabouts of Iris’ mother haven’t really been addressed on the show yet, although it’s only been 1 season. In fact, she’s barely referenced, if at all, as I recall. I think I just assumed that she wasn’t alive.

Clearly, she is; unless she’ll be appearing in flashbacks.

But we’ll know much more about the West family, as another member, Iris’ cousin Wally West, played by Keiynan Lonsdale also joins the cast.

Williams and Lonsdale join the previously-cast Tony Todd, who joins the series for season 2, although in voice only, playing villain Zoom.

“The Flash” just got a little blacker!
