When “The Flash” returns for season 4, we’ll be seeing some new faces on the show. Katee Sackhoff will be joining the show as Blacksmith in the 5th episode of the new season, and Danny Trejo will be joining the show as Breacher, a character who is the father of Gypsy.
During a recent panel at DragonCon, Danielle Panabaker talked about the new additions to the cast, and she hinted that Sackhoff may be returning for another episode in the future (via Fansided).
“Katee Sackhoff just was on our show and she was fantastic. I think she is really embracing the villainess role. I feel very lucky that we were able to get her on our show and I’m so excited for her to come back.”
As for Danny Trejo, he may look intimidating, but he’s often described as a big teddy bear, and it sounds like he has nothing but love for Danielle Panabaker.
“Danny Trejo is awesome. I really want his donuts and tacos. He has a donut store and a taco store in LA and I really want to go. The first time I met him, I went up to introduce myself and he threw open his arms and gave me a big hug and he pulled down his shirt and said, ‘Look, I have your name tattooed on my chest! That’s my daughter’s name!’”
Which new addition to the cast are you most excited about? Sound off in the comments below.
“The Flash” season 4 will premiere on Tuesday, October 10.
Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. But when Barry used his extraordinary abilities to travel back in time and save his mother’s life, he inadvertently created an alternate timeline known as Flashpoint; a phenomenon that gave birth to the villainous speed god known as Savitar, and changed the lives of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Wally West (Keiyan Lonsdale) forever.
With the help of his adoptive father, Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), his lifelong best friend and love interest Iris West (Candice Patton), and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs — Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), C.S.I Julian Albert (Tom Felton), and an Earth-19 novelist named H.R. Wells (Tom Cavanaugh) — Barry continues to protect the people of Central City from the meta-humans that threaten it.
