She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BFA in Theatre from Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
While attending college, Candice entered a nationwide audition contest to win a role in ”The Young and the Restless.” Patton and Iranian-American actor Ethan Rains won the contest. She ultimately performed in five episodes of the soap opera series.
”In college, CBS’ Young and the Restless did a nationwide casting search for a new male and female to join the show,” Candice said for Glamour. She added: ”They came to SMU and ended up picking me.”
After college, Patton moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. ”I think I made the better decision,” Candice said in an interview. ”I felt pressure at the time to take advantage of my youth.”

Patton was cast in a role that was originally a white woman in the comic books but was reimagined as an African American woman for the TV.
”I’m proud that I’ve been able to be a part of this race-bending casting, especially in this genre,” Candice explained. ”Because I feel like it’s opened the doors for so much more of that,” she added.
”Being able to do that as a black woman playing a traditionally white character, I knew that it was gonna ruffle some feathers,” Patton said in another interview.
In May 2015, Candice ranked #61 in the Maxim Hot 100 List.
In 2017, Patton was the recipient of a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress on Television. In the same year, she played Iris West in one episode of ”Iris West,” and ”Batwoman” in 2019.
