The CW’s The Flash is not waiting long to bring in a new love interest for The Fastest Man Alive. The Vampire Diaries and Star-Crossed alum Malese Jow has been tapped to recur and play pivotal DC Comics character Linda Park, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The character is described as a quick-witted reporter for the Central City Picture News. She befriends Iris (Candice Patton) while at work and helps her navigate the fast-paced world of journalism. When she meets Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) at a local bar, the two hit it off and become quick friends. The character will first appear in episode 112.
For Jow, the role brings her back into The CW fold after her regular role on last season’s short-lived Star-Crossed and her fan favorite portrayal of Anna on The Vampire Diaries. Her credits include Unfabulous, The Troop and Big Time Rush. She’s repped by Sweeney Entertainment and McKuin Frankel.
In DC’s The Flash comics, Linda Park first appears in Issue No. 28 as Wally West’s girlfriend and eventual wife. (Wally is the first Kid Flash and third Flash overall.) The character becomes the latest in a rapidly growing line of DC characters to appear on the freshman series. Jow joins Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell’s Heat Wave, Robbie Amell’s Firestorm, Kelly Frye’s Plastique, Clancy Brown’s The General, Patrick Sabongui’s Captain Sing and Robert Knepper’s The Clock King, among others.
