PETALING JAYA: He may be a superhero onscreen, but Thomas Grant Gustin – who plays the titular character in TV series The Flash – couldn't resist the charm of a native Sabahan girl.

Andrea Thoma, a half-Kadazan, turned out to be Gustin’s ‘Iris West.’

They were recently engaged, according to an Instagram post by Gustin, in which Thoma was seen flashing her engagement ring with a big smile on her face while embracing him.

Based on her own Instagram account, Thoma is Sabahan through her mother’s side.

She also posted a photo of her family wearing traditional Kadazan attire, believed to be taken at her mother's village, Kampung Kolopis in Penampang near Kota Kinabalu.

“Don't mess with us, our ancestors are head hunters. #notkidding #kadazan #sabah #borneo,” she wrote.
