The cast and crew of “The Flash” have worked with a lot of TV directors since The CW series was launched in 2014. While a few of them have already returned to the director’s chair, others still haven’t got the opportunity to do so. But if there’s one past director series actress Candice Patton would like to work again with on the show, it’s none other than Emmy winner David Nutter.
“I’d love to have David Nutter come back,” Patton told Den of Geek. “He shot our pilot. He did the Red Wedding episode of ‘Game of Thrones.’ He’s incredible.”
The 28-year-old actress is aware that bringing Nutter back to the show would be “very hard,” but she said that she would sell all of her possessions just to have him come back on the show.
“I probably shouldn’t do that,” the actress, who plays Iris West on the series, backtracked. “But that’s how much I love David Nutter. He is incredible.”
While it’s unclear whether Nutter would be given another chance to direct a new episode of “The Flash,” his love for the superhero genre is something that is not questionable.
In an interview with Comic Book Movie back in 2014, Nutter revealed that he “enjoys the hero genre more than anything else.” “I enjoy origin stories,” he said.
“I enjoy doing stories about people who learn what they are capable of. I enjoy telling stories where people have to do what they do and it’s not really a choice, it’s basically something they are drawn to. It’s not a life choice, but something they are compelled to do, and something that can sometimes be life and death. I love those life choices and I love the stakes that it involves,” the director added at the time.
Nutter, who also directed the second episode of “The Flash,” already has two Emmys under his belt. He won his first Emmy in 2002 for directing the fourth episode of the HBO miniseries “Band of Brothers.” He got his second Emmy last year for directing “Game of Thrones” Season 5, Episode 10, titled “Mother’s Mercy.”
According to Tampa Bay Times, Nutter was dubbed as “the pilot-whisperer” in the early 2000s after he racked up a record of directing 16 pilots in a row that got picked up as a series. These include the pilots for “Smallville,” “Supernatural,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” and “The Mentalist.”
