Last night’s episode of The CW’s new DC Comics series “The Flash” introduced a new character of sorts with Gideon, the super computer used by Tom Cavanagh’s Dr. Harrison Wells. Today, TVLine has learned that the voice of Gideon was none other than fan-favorite actress Morena Baccarin!
Best known for appearing in “Firefly,” “V,” and “Homeland,” Baccarin has also lent her voice to a number of other DC projects in the past. She voiced Black Canary on the “Justice League” animated series, Cheetah on “Batman: The Brave and The Bold,” and Taliah al Ghul in this year’s direct-to-home-video animated feature Son of Batman. She’s also already set to appear next year as Dr. Leslie Thompkins on FOX’s “Gotham.” Whether she will return as the voice of Gideon on “The Flash” remains to be seen, although the odds appear to be quite favorable that she’ll be back.
Starring Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Rick Cosnett, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh and Jesse L. Martin, “The Flash” airs Tuesdays at 8 P.M. on The CW.
