CW’s The Flash casts “The Originals” actress as Sue Dearbon

Ralph Dibny is finally going to meet Sue Dearbon on the CW Flash television series.

Per Entertainment Weekly:

Sue Dearbon’s arrival is imminent because The Flash has finally found an actress for the part.

EW has confirmed that Natalie Dreyfuss (The Originals) has been cast in the recurring role of Sue Dearbon, the missing person at the heart of Ralph Dibny’s (Hartley Sawyer) current case. In the pages of DC Comics, Sue eventually becomes Ralph’s wife and crime-solving partner. (TVLine broke the news).

Here’s the official character description: “Possessing a fierce intelligence and a spitfire personality, Sue Dearbon is the daughter to one of Central City’s most wealthy families. But there’s much more to Sue than just the socialite reputation that always precedes her, which master detective Ralph Dibny will discover when they finally meet later this season.”

In the comics the Ralph/Sue relationship was a huge thing for years. They were one of the fan favorite couples in DC Comics before Brad Meltzer completely dismantled it in the iconic Identity Crisis storyline that turned the DC Universe on its ear. The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
