Candice Patton spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the relationship between Earth 2's Barry Allen and Iris West. The Flash actress said, "From what I'm seeing, the relationship between Barry and Iris will be strong on every Earth, to some degree. It's safe to say that there is some sort of relationship-friendship between Barry and Iris on Earth-2. I won't say what that is or how that looks, but it's safe to say they are friends and close to some degree no matter where we find them."
The actress also talked about the difference between Iris West and her Earth-2 doppelgänger. "She's quite different. She's similar in a lot of ways, but the way that I can say that she's most different to Earth-1 Iris is that she's really tough. I know Iris form Earth-1 is pretty tough, but this version is really hard and tough."
The 27-year-old actor revealed that it was fun to play a different version of Iris. "She's less emotionally penetrable than the Earth-1 version of herself, which was really cool to play. It was really fun to play a different version. As an actor, you end up on a series, and you think you're going to play one character for however long. It's nice that we have these doppelgängers and we get to play a little bit."
