Here at FlashTVNews we will be running interviews from
100th episode celebration carpet from a few weeks back, all leading to the epic 100th episode airing Tuesday, December 4 on The CW. Follow @FlashTVNews on Twitter for updates on when those interviews are posted!
Right now, we are turning the spotlight onto Tom Cavanagh, who is not only the actor who has given us Eobard Thawne as Harrison Wells, H.R., Harry, Sherloque and others, but he is also the director of the centennial episode. When approaching this story, Cavanagh knew that it was important to create something that the die-hard fans who are intimately familiar with The Flash would enhoy.
“When it gets to the century mark, we definitely feel like you want to give them something. You do want to make that comic book issue #100, like ‘oh, I got that one, and that’s a good one’!” he recalled.
“I think it starts with the story. The easy mistake to make is ‘hey, let’s just go back and do a bottle show of some of our greatest hits.’ It’s easy to do that, and there’s a temptation to do so. Like ‘here’s Zoom! Here’s Savitar! Here are all of these different things we did!’ And the other part of it is, you do want to sort of nod to the people that brought you here, but you want to do it organically, and we came up with this idea that The Flash and his daughter, who is weirdly the same age as him, have to go back to the past to find things to help defeat the current villain. So then as a director, once you’ve got that central conceit in place, it’s like ‘all right, now don’t mess it up’,” he explained.
