Another villain has been added to the list of The Flash Season 3 cast. Actress Ashley Rickards has been named to play the new female villain of the show.
Richards will be playing Rosalind “Rosa” Dillon, a.k.a. The Top. She will debut in episode 4 of the upcoming season, which will be an origin story for Mirror Master. The actress is best known for her role in Awkward for five seasons and on One Tree Hill. She also appeared in two episodes of American Horror Story Season 1.
What do we know so far about The Top? Check out these interesting facts about this new The Flash Season 3 cast member.
The Top first appeared in an issue of The Flash in 1961. He first had the alias Roscoe Dillon before using a toy’s name. Rosa/The Top will team up with the Mirror Master, which is being played by Aquarius actor Grey Damon. The Flash executive producers Aaron and Todd Helbing called The Top as the Bonnie to Master’s Clyde.
2. Gender swap
This seems to be the trend right now. The Top is actually a male character in comic books. In The Flash TV series, he is going to be a she.
3. The Top’s power
He is one of the most dangerous members of the Rogues gallery. The character has the power to make people’s heads spin. Could his spinning ability cause headache in Barry Allen’s world?
4. The story
As a boy, Dillon was obsessed with the top. As an adult, he learned how to spin so fast he could brush off bullets. He also discovered while in jail that spinning somehow increased his intelligence and enabled him to make some unusual weapons in the form of tops.
5. The love interest
The Top also became romantically linked to Captain Cold’s sister Lisa Snart. He taught Lisa how to spin, which made the already excellent skater the best. It is unclear if Lisa will also appear in The Flash Season 3. The character appeared in previous seasons of the CW hit series.
