Born on June 24, 1985, Candice Kristina Patton always dreamed of becoming an actress. She spent her childhood in Texas but pursued her acting dream in Dallas. She attended college at Southern Methodist University and even graduated Summa Cum Laude. Patton graduated with a degree in Theatre.
While in college, Patton joined the contest called “Soap Star Screen Test” for the soap opera, “The Young and the Restless”. She won the competition and appeared in the soap opera for five episodes.
After her 5-episode role in The Young and the Restless, Candice had another TV appearance before her graduation in 2007. She got to play the character Candy in the TV series “The Bold and the Beautiful”. After graduation, Candice starred in the web series, “Sorority Forever”. The series ran for 21 episodes. She then had short engagements in both TV and films before landing the role Iris West in the long-running series, “The Flash”.
Candice’s role in “The Flash” was her big moment. She was a main character in the series and became a regular. The first episode of “The Flash” aired in 2014.
Iris West is the daughter of Joe West, the Flash’s adoptive father. When Candice landed the role, she did not know at first what she was getting into. Many DC fans did not like her as a great representation of Iris West.
In the DC comics, the character was a white woman, and Candice was African-American. But, her wit and her confidence shrugged off those haters. Candice became an inspiration for young girls of color not to be afraid to be themselves.
Candice garnered nominations at the Teen Choice Awards and Saturn Awards. She even won the Best Supporting Actress on Television at the Saturn Awards.
Patton is not only proud of her work as an actress. She is also pleased to co-find a charity with her fellow Arrowverse actors.
