From Zimbabwe to The States, Rick Cosnett has circumvented the globe to play "Eddie Thawne" on the CW's popular comic book-turned series, The Flash. That's right, the actor grew up on a farm in Zimbabwe. After studying acting in Australia he landed a role on the Vampire Diaries and cemented himself as resident handsome man on the CW.

He came into the Complex L.A. studio and we got to learn a little more about his upbringing, his character on the show and the new film he's crowdfuning about American slaves just before the Civil War.

Check out his kickstarter here, and watch Rick every Tuesday night at 8/7c on The CW's The Flash.
