The Flash to get a love interest with Vampire Diaries’ Malese Jow

malese jow vampire diaries

If you’re caught up with The Flash, then you should know that Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen really wants to be with Iris (Candice Patton), his childhood friend who’s close enough to possibly be his step-sister. However, she’s currently dating his fellow colleague, Eddie (Rick Cosnett). That leaves Allen all alone with just his S.T.A.R. Labs team and his powers.

The CW is going to be adding a new love interest for our hero, and that person is Linda Park, who will be played by Malese Jow (Vampire Diaries). She will be a recurring and pivotal character on the show, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“The character is described as a quick-witted reporter for the Central City Picture News. She befriends Iris while at work and helps her navigate the fast-paced world of journalism. When she meets Barry Allen at a local bar, the two hit it off and become quick friends. The character will first appear in episode 112.”

Linda Park¬†first appeared in Issue No. 28 in the Flash comics and was¬†Wally West’s girlfriend and future wife.

Check out this awkward conversation between Wally and Linda (from Flash Vol 2 #238 in 2008).
