“[Playing Nora], it feels very much like coming home,” Kennedy tells Den of Geek. “I love her, and I related to her on so many levels. [This is] a different version of her, but it’s also very, very similar.”
This model of Nora is lacking a lot of the anger and resentment that drove her first incarnation, having grown up in a timeline the place her relationship with Iris was fully completely different (and rather more wholesome) than the one by which she blamed in mom for her father’s absence in her life. Yet her household nonetheless stays the driving drive behind all the pieces this Nora does, significantly her affection for and emotions of accountability towards her youthful brother.
“She’s definitely more mature. She’s physically older. And she’s responsible for a little brother who’s very much like her OG character [used to be]. And he’s always in the way and doing the wrong thing. So there’s a definitely parenting element that she’s had to take with him. it’s a balance of caring for him, but also tolerating him at the same time.”
Kennedy credit onscreen sibling Jordan Fisher with the pair’s plausible sibling bond, calling him “a really special person” and “all the things I would want in an acting partner.”
“The love is very strong [between Nora and Bart],” she says. “They love each other, they’re completely there for each other. I mean, for goodness sakes, they’re superheroes together That’s something that only they can understand, really. And they definitely watch each other’s backs.”
Fisher’s Impulse has lived as much as his character’s identify all through this two-parter, speeding into hazard at any time when the chance presents itself. He unwisely tries to rescue John Wesley Shipp’s Jay Garrick from the clutches of the Godspeeds and results in a coma for his hassle, an harm that’s solely healed due to the handy intervention of the Speed Force herself.
