The Flash’s Danielle Panabaker Comments on Possibly Becoming Killer Frost. Last week’s episode of The Flash provided some background into Caitlin Snow before the particle explosion in Central City. Snow’s portrayer Danielle Panabaker weighs in on her character’s transformation.
Danielle Panabaker spoke with IGN about Caitlin’s journey so far on The Flash, with a possibility of her becoming Killer Frost down the line. “I think it’s really exciting. What’s so cool about this show is how, at least in my experience, how faithful they are being to all the comic book lore. They are so respectful of the stories that have been told and it’s exciting. The thought that goes into the Flash costume and all of that. It would be exciting to be a part of that.”
On whether Danielle’s transformation would change her performance, she doesn’t think it would affect it at all. She adds:
I don’t think so. I don’t think it changes things for me, as an actor because a lot like the audience, we’re getting the scripts one week at a time and just sort of taking this new information. Obviously we’ve had conversations with Andrew [Kreisberg] and Greg and Geoff [Johns] about what’s happened before and that sort of thing but it’s kind of fun to be that audience member who gets every new script. I mean, truthfully when they come in, I’m like a little kid in a candy store. I like can’t wait to read it and I’m squinting, reading it on my iPhone, and I can’t wait to see what happens.
It certainly will be a while before we see Caitlin Snow becoming the infamous Killer Frost, but we are certainly glad that she continues to support Barry Allen with his abilities as he fights crime.
Panabaker also gave her thoughts on her mentor Dr. Harrison Wells, whom many of us believe he could be Reverse-Flash:
It’s hard for me, as an actor, because obviously I see the whole script and now I’m seeing the episodes but Caitlin doesn’t know that but she comes back to Star Labs because she believes in Wells. If you think about Star Labs and the vastness of it, how many scientists were working there and how many people were there… The fact that she and Cisco are the only two that show up again, just in a very sort of silent way, demonstrates their belief in him so we’re starting this journey with the upmost respect and passion for him. I don’t know that they’re at a place where they want to see Wells’ flaws if that makes sense.
