Danielle Panabaker is perfectly cast as Caitlin Snow, but how did she get herself ready to play the Earth-2 metahuman Killer Frost in The Flash Season 2? We interviewed her to find out the details!
Amid the excitement that Draco Malfoy himself, Tom Felton, has joined the cast of The Flash Season 3 as a series regular, it's easy to forget how great the recurring cast was this year. Caitlin went through more tragedy than any character should ever have to, and we also got a sneak peek at everyone's Earth-2 counterparts when Barry and co. crossed over to Earth-2 in what was the highlight of the season. Danielle Panabaker's Killer Frost was in particular a joy to watch, and as you'd expect, we relished the opportunity to ask her questions about it when we caught up with the actress at the Monte-Carlo Television Festival. On how she prepared for the role of Killer Frost, Panabaker said: "I didn't realize Killer Frost was coming that soon. I was pretty excited when I found out Caitlin was Killer Frost on Earth-2, so I went and watched some old Batman movies and watched Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman and watched Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy for inspiration."

As we've said, Caitlin's been through a helluva lot of trauma this past season, but will this change her character going into Season 3? Panabaker said: "I don't know. I think it was really nice in the season finale when she called Barry on the loss she's had as well. Obviously Barry has lost both of his parents at that point and it's a fresh wound, but, it's something that they share." And judging by said trauma, you'd think that Panabaker absolutely despises Zoom, but nope, he's her favorite! When we asked her who she'd want to play if not Caitlin, she said: "I don't know. The Zoom character was so well done, he was so well done, I was so proud of Teddy, he did such a great job. I don't think I would have wanted to play that though. That was an intense role."
