Keiynan Lonsdale exits LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and THE FLASH

Keiynan Lonsdale as Kid Flash

Actor Keiynan Lonsdale (Love, Simon) has confirmed that he is to leave his role as Wally West in the Arrow-verse. The actor currently appears on both The Flash and more recently Legends of Tomorrow.

In a post to his Instagram account Lonsdale explained the reasons behind his exit.

It has been confirmed that Wally will have a role in the first episode of both his series. Perhaps these will cross over to give the character a fitting exit. Hopefully the door is left open for a potential return down the line.

Lonsdale first joined the The Flash in the season 2 episode “Running to Stand Still“. He went on to become a series regular before moving over to Legends of Tomorrow during it’s third season. He recently appeared in the romantic comedy Love, Simon to critical acclaim.
