‘The Flash’ Casts ‘Harry Potter’ Alum Tom Felton as Series Regular

Draco Malfoy actor signs on to CW superhero drama for Season 3

“The Flash” has welcomed a Slytherin into their midst. Tom Felton has joined the CW superhero drama as a series regular, TheWrap has learned.

The “Harry Potter” alum will play the role of Julian Dorn, a fellow CSI at Central City Police Department who suspects there’s more to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) than just his good guy reputation.

Gustin and executive producer Greg Berlanti recently confirmed Season 3 of the DC comic book adaptation will tackle the Flashpoint storyline from the comics.

In the Season 2 finale, after Barry lost his father and defeated the season’s big bad, Zoom (Teddy Sears), he decided to reverse the decision he made in the Season 1 finale and go back in time to stop Reverse-Flash (Tom Cavanagh) from killing his mother when he was young.

This set off alarm bells for hardcore DC comic book fans, who immediately recognized this action from the super speedster as one in which an altered timeline is created, wherein most heroes are villains and there’s a twist to every familiar character.

Barry’s decision is one that should have ramifications across all The CW DC shows, including “Arrow,” “Legends of Tomorrow” and potentially even “Supergirl” as it moves networks for its season season.

“The Flash” returns for Season 3 on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
