On the latest episode of TheWrap’s “Drinking With the Stars,” The CW’s “The 100” star chats with TheWrap’s Senior TV Writer Jethro Nededog about the show’s season finale and her celebrity survival dream team
In anticipation of the season finale of “The 100,” which aired Wednesday night, series co-star Lindsey Morgan sat down with TheWrap’s Jethro Nededog at Mixology in Los Angeles to chat over some “Cu-Cu T’s,” as she calls cucumber tonics.
Morgan talked about the tough time her character, Raven, experienced. She was badly wounded in the episode leading into the finale, leaving her character in a precarious situation for the final hour of the season.
The actress went on to compare “The 100” season finale to fantasy fare like “Game of Thrones” or “Lord of the Rings,” describing it as an “epic brain blow-up.”
“It’s so cinematic, so intense,” Morgan exclaimed. “War is coming.” She was also hopeful that there would be a part for her in that war. “It’s still a question on the table,” she said about Raven’s involvement in the second season.
“The 100” picked up a solid audience for The CW after a March premiere, earning a second season pick-up a couple of months later. The show is set in a future where humanity has been forced to leave Earth after a nuclear war wiped out almost all life. After 97 years, 100 young prisoners were sent back down to the planet’s surface to see if it’s inhabitable.
After talking about the epic Season 1 finale, TheWrap asked Morgan which four celebrities she would want by her side if she were to go to another planet to try and determine if it was inhabitable.
She went with “Thor’s” Chris Hemsworth, for his strength; comedian Chris D’Elia (“Undateable”) to keep up the morale; celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse to serve up some good food; and J-Law, Jennifer Lawrence, as her honorary gal pal. Talk about a dream team!
