“The Flash” actress Danielle Panabaker, who plays Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost on the CW series, turned 29 on Monday, Sept. 19. And as expected, a number of her co-stars took to social media to give her a birthday shoutout.
Keiynan Lonsdale, who portrays Wally West / Kid Flash on the show, greeted Panabaker on Twitter, sharing a black-and-white photo of the birthday celebrant.
Shantel VanSanten also sent Panabaker a birthday message via Twitter. “Has everyone wished the amazing @dpanabaker a happy birthday today!? Sending you lots of love (& donuts) darling!! Xxx,” VanSanten, who joined the show’s cast as Patty Spivot in Season 2, wrote on the microblogging site.
John Wesley Shipp (Henry Allen / Earth-3 Jay Garrick) and Patrick Sabongui (David Singh) also shared their birthday wishes for Panabaker on Twitter.
Apart from replying to some birthday greetings on Twitter, Panabaker also took to Instagram to give thanks for all the birthday love she received.
In the upcoming Season 3 of “The Flash,” fans are going to know more about Caitlin’s family. In fact, early last month, Susan Walters was cast as Caitlin’s mom.
According to Entertainment Weekly , Walters will play Carla Tannhauser, a world-class biomedical engineer and CEO of a major research firm. While Caitlin may have inherited her mom’s expertise in the field of science, the two have long had a difficult relationship. Caitlin finds her mom cold and withholding, while Carla regards her daughter as rebellious and ungrateful.
Caitlin’s mom was first mentioned in Season 2, Episode 19 (“Back to Normal”), in which the S.T.A.R. Labs’ resident bio-engineer came face-to-face with her Earth-2 doppelganger Killer Frost, who also happens to have cold relationship with her own mom.
“The Flash” Season 3 premieres on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
