A daytime alum speeds into primetime as Susan Walters (ex-Diane, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) joins the cast of THE FLASH!

The actress, known to ABC Daytime fans as LOVING’s Lorna, will be playing the mother of Caitlin Snow, played by series regular Danielle Panabaker. The character was first mentioned in season two when Caitlin recalled how her mother was cold and emotionally distant while she was growing up.

“I can’t wait to join THE FLASH and work with Danielle Panabaker!” Walters tweeted.
