CW’s ‘The Flash’ Casts Original Show’s Heroine

CW’s “The Flash” has brought back Amanda Pays to play Dr. Tina McGee, the role she played in the original live-action version of the superhero drama.

Pays joins John Wesley Shipp, who played lead Barry Allen/The Flash in the first series and who plays the character’s father in the reboot. Pays will again play the brilliant geneticist — although this time she is working for a rival tech firm to S.T.A.R. Labs, the company that has taken an interest in Barry Allen’s need for speed.

“When we decided to bring Tina onto our version of ‘The Flash,’ who better to get than the amazing actress who originated the part?” said exec producer Andrew Kreisberg. “Like with John Wesley Shipp, we are so proud and excited to have another actor from the original series join us on our new adventures for Barry Allen.”

The original series aired for one season on CBS.
