DEN OF GEEK: So, who do you think had the more uncomfortable suit, you or Grant?
JOHN WESLEY SHIPP: (laughs) I haven’t been in his suit. But from what I understand, I don’t know how it could be more uncomfortable than mine was! I understand they have a different kind of glue, so they don’t have to take it off with acetone anymore. They can clean it. We couldn’t clean our suits. It cost $100,000 to build four suits in 1990. They’d just hang ‘em up in the trailer and spray it with Lysol!
COMICBOOK.COM: How much research did you end up doing into the comics and the old series to get into the character?
GRANT GUSTIN: I started at the beginning at first. I thought I’d go all the way back and then kind of read. Then I was like, “Wait a second, this is impossible. I can’t do all that.”
So I read some of the old stuff but then once I worked my way toward the New 52 series, I’m pretty much just reading that now because it’s the closest to what we’re kind of doing. But at the same time, what we’re doing has not been done in the comics. It’s a very different Barry Allen. A lot of the characters are very different than they are in the comics, but they have the same heart.
I mean, I’ve done plenty of the research but Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns and Greg Berlanti are my research. If I need information, I can just talk to them. I don’t have to try to flip through the comics that relates to the episode we’re doing. I just call and have a conversation with them about it.
DC COMICS: So did you ever think you’d be hanging out with a super hero for a living?
CANDICE PATTON: No, I never… I mean, I think if you’re an actor you dream of doing some kind of super hero movie or show. But you don’t think it could ever some true, so this is kind of crazy.
I had a dream last night for the first time about the Flash. So I’ve started dreaming about Flash, which is really kind of cool
