The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Tom Felton aka Draco Malfoy will be joining the cast of CW’s “The Flash” next season as a series regular. The “Harry Potter” actor took to Instagram to announce the good news by posting a selfie.
In his caption, he wittily wrote, “Thank you for all your kind words today. See you in a flash. The Flash”.
It was reported that the English actor will be taking up the role of Julian Dorn, a fellow CSI at the Central City Police Department who “suspects there’s more to Barry Allen than just his good guy reputation”.
One thing is for sure: Julian Dorn is not from the DC comic book universe. Many fans are speculating that Julian Dorn has a secret identity due to the alternate timeline. Also, Grant Gustin aka The Flash himself said that season 3 is all about the “Flashpoint”.
In regards to Tom’s casting news, Grant took to Twitter to further tease fans. “Wait. I completely missed the Tome Felton announcement. I know what character he must be playing and I just got SO excited for this season,” wrote the star.
28-year-old Tom Felton is best known for his role as Harry Potter’s school nemesis Draco Malfoy in all 8 “Harry Potter” movies. Besides doing films, he also co-starred in British anthology drama “Murder In The First” and has appeared in “Full Circle” and “Labyrinth”.
