At the 41st Annual Saturn Awards in Burbank, California last night, we had a chance to chat with The Flash stars Grant Gustin and Candice Patton. Gustin, who plays the title character, was in attendance to receive the Breakthrough Performance Award – his first acting award – and stopped to talk about his time in The CW series. After admitting that he grew up a fan of Christopher Reeve’s Superman, he teased that season two of The Flash would be introducing “a really cool big bad that will be revealed [almost] immediately,” and that he will be part of the Legends of Tomorrow spin-off right out of the gates. That’s three superhero films for Gustin this season; not bad!
Patton was a little more reserved, but had nothing but positive things to say about working on the show, her reaction to acting opposite Grant in the the costume, her favorite villains from season one, and where Iris might be going in season two. Check out our video interviews with the both of them below.
