There have been plenty Harry Potter references in The Flash over the past two seasons (such as calling the time wraiths Dementors), and Cisco has even admitted to going to a Harry Potter convention. So Cisco may find a new character for season three vaguely familiar. TVLine is reporting that Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter film franchise, has been cast in a major role in season three The CW’s superhero speedster show.
Felton is set to play Julian Dorn, a new member of the CSI team at Central City PD who suspects that there’s more to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) than his good guy reputation would have everyone believe.
As well as Draco, Felton has also made TV appearances in Murder In The First, Full Circle and the historical miniseries Labyrinth.
Season three of The Flash will be loosely based on the “Flashpoint” storyline from the comic books (see here).
