Please take warning that screencaps from the episode Nevermore might contain triggering imagery.
“The 100” star Lindsey Morgan has been set as the lead in the independent thriller “Lasso,” Variety has learned.
Evan Cecil is directing from a script by Roberto Marinas. Elaine Gibson is the producer.
The thriller centers around Morgan’s character and Andrew Jacobs’ character as they navigate life working for a senior community center. Their lives are turned upside down when they find themselves fighting to stay alive against a group of psycho, bloodthirsty cowboys from the local rodeo.
Morgan’s character holds a huge amount of guilt for not keeping the senior citizens safe and takes on the duty of ensuring their safety throughout the film.
Morgan portrays Raven Reyes in the CW drama “The 100,” which is currently airing its third season and has been renewed for a fourth. She also starred on “General Hospital” in 2012-13 as Kristina Davis.
Jacobs played the lead in 2014’s “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones.” Cecil’s TV credits include “Wives With Knives,” “The Day I Almost Died” and “Sex Sent Me to the Slammer.”
From Entertainment Weekly:
There have been a number of contenders for The 100’s season 3 Big Bad: The Ice Queen seemed like a ruthless foe, but Lexa dealt with her quickly. Pike was a thorn in everyone’s side, but he’s since been captured. Ontari certainly wants to be a force to be reckoned with, but she’s more fun than fearsome. So that leaves us with A.L.I.E., a computer software intent on taking over the world.
Jaha, the Pinky to A.L.I.E.’s The Brain, has been recruiting as many Arkadians as possible to join them in the City of Light. They thought they had converted a serious ally in Raven Reyes (played by Lindsey Morgan), but instead she became the first person to fight for her free will and resist the AI.
That unique ability to fight back against A.L.I.E. is a character strength that Morgan loves about Raven: “For such a long time, Raven has just been beat down and beat down by life in this world,” the actress tells EW. “You kind of forget the super smart, funky badass space mechanic who flew down in a pod she built herself and pulled out a knife on Bellamy because he took her radio. We haven’t seen that Raven in so long because she’s been so troubled for so long. I think it’s is a nice reminder that this girl is no joke.”
Unfortunately, even Raven has her limits. In episode 10, A.L.I.E. gave Raven what she asked for and revoked her pass to the City of Light, resulting in a heartbreaking scene that saw all of Raven’s forgotten memories flooding to the surface at once. As an actress, Morgan felt it was important to convey with her body everything that was going on in Raven’s mind; she approached the episode’s director, Matt Barber, and asked that he relay the exact sequence of the memories that would be running through Raven’s head. “I wanted each memory of it to be different, [and] the expression of it to be different, because I’m going to feel differently about being drilled for bone marrow than remembering my boyfriend being murdered by one of my best friends,” she says. “And even though it’s just acting, it’s still an experience. It’s almost like these memories are real and they are inside of you — because you did live through them in a sense, especially the dark ones. You trick your body into thinking you’re going through trauma, and your body doesn’t forget anything. I can touch my leg and remember the surgery, and the necklace reminds Raven of Finn; I have little triggers to help me remember and bring those memories to the forefront.”
Following that harrowing scene, A.L.I.E. took full synaptic control of Raven’s brain; our badass space mechanic was simply too weakened by the trauma to keep her out. Now that Clarke and Jasper are fleeing with Raven, the race is on to save her, which is the focus of Thursday’s episode, “Nevermore.”
And who better to save Raven than the old gang? Although Clarke, Monty, Jasper, Bellamy, and Octavia have all been at odds in one way or another this entire season, they’ll have to put that on hold. “They all come together for one purpose — and that’s to try to save Raven,” Morgan explains. “It’s nice that they put aside their differences for a greater cause.”
Morgan enjoys working with the group again on a personal level (“I love when we can all be in scenes together because we do enjoy each other so much and everyone works great together — and this is technically the first time the entire season long that we’ve had a chance to be together in the same room”), but also on a show level. She says the essence of episode 11 goes back to what “the 100” are all about.
“We protect our people, but mostly we protect each other,” she says of the original group. “We were the ones who came down here together, so really the ultimate bond is there in the 100 kids themselves.”
After putting up a valiant fight on last week’s The 100, Raven (Lindsey Morgan) gave herself over to A.L.I.E. (Erica Cerra) completely. But never one to give up on her people, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) will lead the fight for Raven’s soul in Thursday’sepisode while the heartless A.I. does everything she can to protect her secrets – even if it means sacrificing Raven.
