Tom Cavanagh – the scene-stealing, dynamite performer who plays many incarnations of Dr Harrison Wells on TV’s “The Flash” – tells Moviehole that this season’s version of Wells was nearly an Australian.
“He was almost an Aussie. We played with that idea. I love Australia and I’d love to do that version. We ended up going with something different — but we were very close to making him Australian. I think it’s possible a future version will indeed be from Down Under.”
Cavanagh, who said a big appeal for him in doing the show is playing the many versions of Wells each season, said the version of the character we’ll see this year isn’t someone we’ve seen before.
“It’s a new character. You’re going to really, really dig it.”
“The Flash” returns for its 6th season on The CW in October.
