Another new villain is joining the ranks of The Flash rogues gallery for Season 4. Canadian actress Sugar Lyn Beard will portray Rebecca Sharpe, aka Hazard, in an upcoming episode.
Beard is set to make her appearance in the season’s third episode, “Luck Be a Lady.”
The show’s version of Sharpe is described as “perpetually down-on her luck and is convinced her life is cursed — until a freak accident changes everything. With the universe on her side, she poses a threat to both Team Flash and Central City.”
Set photos captured last month seemed to hint at the appearance of Hazard in the episode:

In the comics, Hazard is the daughter of the villain The Gambler, with the ability to manipulate probability. She was created by Roy Thomas and Spawn-creator Todd MacFarlane.
Beard is an actress, radio personality, and voice actress from Toronto, Ontario. She’s provided voice work for dozens of television shows and movies, including the recent Captain Underpants film.
Her live-action roles have included appearances on Drunk History and The Mindy Project, and roles in the movie Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates and the upcoming film, The Disaster Artist.
The Flash will return for its fourth season starting Tuesday, October 10 at 8/7c on The CW.
