The Flash: 10 Things You Didn't Know About Grant Gustin

10. His First Name Is Thomas

The CW

To say that Grant Gustin became a household name during the previous decade would be something of an understatement. From making a name for himself on stage to his recurring role on Glee, he had amassed quite the audience by the time his guest spot on Arrow resulted in a starring role as The Flash. Yes, to put it mildly - lots of people were talking about Grant Gustin.

However, did you know that Grant isn't actually the young actor's forename? Surprisingly, his full name is Thomas Grant Gustin.

Thomas is a great name no doubt - and admittedly, he even looks like a Thomas - but given how well Grant Gustin rolls of the tongue (alliteration is sexy, people!), it's understandable that he used it as his professional name instead.

That being said, it's safe to say that Thomas Grant Gustin would have been equally as popular.
