The CW series The 100 was spotlighted today at WonderCon with a 13-minute preview of Thursday’s new episode “Stealing Fire” as well as appearances by the show’s cast.

HU02_CLARK_1422We were able to speak with the visiting cast members, including Eliza Taylor, Bob Morley, Christopher Larkin, Lindsey Morgan, Richard Harmon, and Devon Bostick as well as creator Jason Rothenberg. Be sure to watch this space or subscribe to our YouTube channel for updates on when they go up.

But, as a little preview, how about Eliza Taylor talking about her recently-departed costar Alycia Debnam-Carey, who made up the “Lexa” half of “Clexa?” What was it like working with her?

“It was amazing,” Taylor enthused. “Oh my God. I love her. I just saw her the other day – she’s in L.A. at the moment, so we’ve been catching up and having coffees… she’s become one of my closest friends.”

Obviously, moving forward after Lexa’s death, Clarke is going to be different, and the recent events will change her forever. However, one thing definitely keeps her going.

“She really does believe that Lexa is in this A.I., so as long as  she keeps this safe, she’s got her, and she turns her grief into that goal of keeping it away from Ontari, getting it as far away from her as possible, and figuring out what to do with it, and ultimately, hopefully defeat Alie, because that is gonna be a huge issue, if it’s not already,” Eliza says.

UPDATE: We now have our video uploaded! Apologies for the sound quality. Eliza also talks about future alliances within, and even reveals a dirty word in the Grounder language! Enjoy. As we mentioned, you can subscribe to our channel on YouTube for more The 100 interviews in the coming days.

 

Stay tuned for more interviews including video as they become available! The 100 airs Thursdays at 9PM on The CW.
