Peyton List to Join ‘The Flash’ Cast as the Golden Glider
It seems like crime runs in the family, as “The Tomorrow People” alumna, Peyton List, will join The CW’s “The Flash.” Read on for more details.
Peyton List will join the cast of “The Flash” series on The CW. List will play the role of Lisa Snart, known as the Golden Glider in DC Comics. Lisa is Leonard Snart’s (Wentworth Miller) infamous cold and calculating sister, who aims to prove to her brother that she has what it takes to be in their criminal gang. List’s character swore revenge as her coach and lover (The Top) died in an attempt to kill the Flash.
Snart is described as sly, sadistic and charming; she will even use her sexuality to get what she wants. She wears razor sharp ice skates, arms herself with weapons and gets on a collision course with Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), a friend of the Flash (Grant Gustin).
Leonard Snart, known as Captain Cold, is a blue-collar criminal with a strong moral code. Snart obtained a special gun built by Cisco (which freezes anything it touches), which helps him with his criminal yet moral pursuits in Central City. Leonard is expected to team up with a group of villains known as The Rogues (where he becomes the leader) and to work with Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) upon the return of the series in January.
Peyton played a role on “The Tomorrow People” as Cara Coburn, the main protagonist in the series who possesses special powers. Peyton isn’t the first “Tomorrow People” cast member to join “The Flash” cast. Robbie Amell, who played Stephen Jameson in “The Tomorrow People,” will star as Ronnie Raymond known as Firestorm in “The Flash.”
Peyton is well known for her role as Lucy Montgomery on the CBS drama “As the World Turns” and as Jane Sterling on AMC’s “Mad Men.” She has also played Nicole Kirby on ABC’s “FlashForward.”
Peyton’s character is expected to make its first appearance on Episode 116 “Rogue Time,” which is set to air in 2015.
“The Flash” will return with new episodes on Jan. 20, 2015 on The CW.
