Kyle Secor (Veronica Mars) is set to join CW’s The Flash in a recurring role.
Secor will play Caitlin Snow’s father Dr. Thomas Snow. The first reference we had to Snow’s father was as ate as last season in a flashback which revealed that Caitlin Snow’s meta powers and the Killer Frost persona had been a part of the scientist for MUCH longer than anyone could have possibly forseen. We’ve previously met Caitlin’s mother and we’ve seen that the two have a troubled relationship.
Caitlin will look answers from her mother Dr. Carla Tannhauser (Susan Walters) regarding the disappearance of Killer Frost and her powers. Executive Producer Todd Helbing gives a little more insight:
“[Carla] is the one she goes to first for answers, you’re going to learn about what role her mother played in all of this, and there is that mysterious premonition that Cecile had at the end of last year about Thomas. So you’re going to learn about exactly who he is and how he plays into the season and Caitlin and Killer Frost, and really just that whole mystery about where she comes from and how she was created is explained.”
