It was just days ago that we learned that DC supervillainess Plastique would be heading to The CW’s upcoming “The Flash.” Now, E! Online has learned that the character of Bette Sans Souci will be portrayed by actress Kelly Frye!
Having first appeared in “Fury of Firestorm” #7, Plastique was primarily a villain against Captain Atom and sometimes Firestorm (who could potentially appear in the series as Robbie Amell has already been cast as half of the nuclear man). The character also has had ties to both the Justice League as well as the Suicide Squad and made a previous live-action appearance in the eighth season of “Smallville”. There, she was played by Jessica Parker Kennedy.
“The Flash” arrives from co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, who, along with Geoff Johns, wrote the pilot episode which was helmed by “Arrow” pilot director David Nutter. Grant Gustin will star as the titular hero along with Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Iris’s father, Detective West, Michelle Harrison as Barry’s mother Nora Allen and many others, including John Wesley Shipp, from the original “The Flash” TV series as Barry’s father
“The Flash” premieres October 7 on The CW. Look for Frye to make her debut in the fifth episode of “The Flash.”
