Australian actor Keiynan Lonsdale has landed the role of Wally West aka Kid Flash.

Known for his role in the movie Insurgent, Lonsdale will come to Central City as a series regular on The Flash Season 2

Just like when we met Grant [Gustin] for the first time, we instantly knew Keiynan embodied all the heart and courage of a hero," executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement. "We are so excited to be bringing this much-beloved character onto the show. 

Wally West Lonsdale

In the comics, Wally West was the first Kid Flash and the third Flash. Iris West was his aunt and his wife (with whom he had two children) was Linda Park (Barry briefly dated Linda in The Flash Season 1). Whether any, all or none of this comic canon will be utilized on The Flash remains to be seen.

Londsdale joins Teddy Sears, who has been cast as another speedster, Jay Garrick, as well as Michael Ironside and Patty Spivot as new additions to The Flash for its sophomore season. 

Things sure are going to be fast in Central City!

The Flash Quotes

One mystery I cannot figure out is why some people come into our lives and why some people go. Others become a part of you. Some friendships feel like they'll last forever and others end far too soon. Not every friendship is meant to last forever. What does last forever is the pain when that person is gone.

It doesn't matter if you're the slowest kid in gym class or the fastest man alive, every one of us is running. Being alive means running. Running from something, running to something or someone. And no matter how fast you are, there are some things you can't outrun. Some things always catch up with you.
