Is Julian Dorn an ally or foe to Barry Allen? We did some digging to give you an insight into who Tom Felton's character is in The Flash Season 3!

In case you hadn't heard, Draco Malfoy himself, Tom Felton recently joined the cast of The Flash Season 3 as a series regular, playing Barry's CSI colleague Julian Dorn. However, it's currently unclear whether Felton will be playing a friend or an enemy (or a frenemy, but let's keep it simple). We do have some clues as to the nature of Julian Dorn however, because before Felton was cast in the role, TVLine reported a description of a character that sounds identical to Julian Dorn. They said: "For Season 3, The CW hit is casting the major recurring character of Barry’s slightly older, slightly geekier contemporary, a guy who is as smart as he is intuitive. As such, this newcomer doesn’t buy Barry’s nice guy routine and sets out to learn what he’s hiding — all while concealing some secrets of his own…."

Could Julian Dorn be Iris' boyfriend after the events of Flashpoint?

From the sound of it Tom Felton will be playing a good guy, but one who's not an ally of Barry. He appears to be investigating Barry because he suspects him of some wrongdoing, and so has good intentions at heart. We expect Barry and Julian to be friendly at the start of the season before Barry catches on that Julian doesn't trust him and gets concerned that Julian might discover he's The Flash. Though if Julian is indeed a good guy, chances are that Dorn and Allen will team up in the end. So what secrets could a good guy like Dorn be hiding? Is he secretly a metahuman but is keeping it hidden in fear of persecution? We'll have to wait for the season premiere to find out! In related news, Tom Felton has thanked his fans for the positive reaction to his casting in The Flash Season 3. Are you excited to see Tom Felton in The Flash?
