Candice Patton Bio – Candice Patton Wiki
Candice Patton born Candice Kristina Patton is an American actress. She is best known for her role as Iris West in The CW television series The Flash and her recurring role in the BET television series The Game. She graduated from Plano East Senior High School in 2003, and later attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, graduating with a BFA in Theatre in 2007.
In May 2004, following her first year in university, she took part in CBS’ Soap Star Screen Test, a nationwide audition contest for university students to win a role on the soap opera The Young and the Restless. She won the contest alongside Ethan Rains. In 2008, she had a starring role in The WB’s web series Sorority Forever and a role in the independent film Commander and Chief.
She was cast for many television series including the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful. She currently portrays Iris West in The Flash for The CW since 2014. The role has led to appearances on other Arrowverse shows including Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow for the Crisis on Earth-X crossover event. In the third season episode “Duet”, she played Millie Foss, the daughter of gangsters, in a dreamworld scenario.
In 2017, her role as Iris West garnered her a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress on Television. In 2017, along with her Arrowverse co-stars, Patton co-founded Shethority an online global collective described as “a positive place for women and the feminine to inspire, empower, and share.” Active members of the initiative include Melissa Benoist, Nicole Maines, Chyler Leigh, Caity Lotz, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Tala Ashe, Emily Bett Rickards, Juliana Harkavy, Katie Cassidy, and Danielle Panabaker. Through social media, women share their own stories and experiences in dealing with self-acceptance, homophobia, sexual harassment at the workplace and so on. Shethority has its own clothing line, from which all the money collected will be donated to non-profit organizations fighting for girls and women’s rights, such as Girls Not Brides and Girls.
In May and June 2019, Patton, DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee, writer Tom King, and fellow CW series actresses Nafessa Williams and Danielle Panabaker toured five U.S. military bases in Kuwait with the United Service Organizations (USO), where they visited the approximately 12,000 U.S. military personnel stationed in that country as part of DC’s 80th anniversary of Batman celebration.

She has never been publicly linked to anyone since entering Hollywood. She explained to Haute Living, “I am a very private and very old school about how much access people should have. I always want to have a connection with my fans and show appreciation but at the same time, there is a difference between me the actor and me the person. And it’s important for me to have boundaries. I don’t want to share everything about my life with the public and so I constantly battle with the line of engaging with fans and protecting myself and my mental health.”
