Keiynan Lonsdale has been cast as Wally West in the second season of the CW‘s hit superhero series THE FLASH. Lonsdale will be a series regular, playing the fast-footed nephew of Candice Patton’s Iris West, with his first appearance on the drama slated for the winter (the series returns October 6th).
“We instantly knew Keiynan embodied all the heart and courage of a hero,” said The Flash executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “We are so excited to be bringing this much-beloved character onto the show.”
Lonsdale is perhaps best known for his role in the dystopian young adult Divergent series, playing Uriah opposite Shailene Woodley’s Tris. He will also appear in Disney’s upcoming Coast Guard drama The Finest Hours.
