It’s a little late, but we spoke to the creator and executive producer of The 100, Jason Rothenberg, and The 100 cast members Eliza Taylor and Bob Morley. We asked them some questions that pertained to events from episode 8 and on of the show, so now we can finally reveal our interview.
We asked Eliza Taylor, who plays main character Clarke Griffin, about Clarke’s personality when she’s around Finn and Bellamy compared to her role as a leader and the tough exterior she puts up as the leader.
I think you see a lot from her side as a leader, and she definitely has a strong head on her shoulders compared to everyone else on the ground. We see another side of her with Finn and even with Bellamy. It changes because they are on an equal level, what do you think?
So you mention that Clarke compartmentalize things, and as the show goes on more intense things seem to be happening, that she might begin to start breaking down. Will we see her not be able to compartmentalize things anymore?
You may remember from my first impressions of the show, that I had some reservations about the science of the show, and I asked Eliza about them here.
We’ve seen what radiation has done to the earth, and all of nature with the animals, are we going to start seeing what happens with the 100 that have landed with radiation?
It affects them in very different ways. We’ve seen the toxic fog, and we’ve seen the deer, and the giant sea snake. There’s a lot more things like that throughout the series. In episode 10, which is one of my favorites, I can’t wait for everyone to see it, their conditions definitely affect them.
We asked Bob Morley, who plays Bellamy Blake, about Clarke and Bellamy’s relationship. The pairing has been adored by the fans and I was also interested in seeing where the pairing would land with the procession of the show.
So the relationship between Bellamy and Clarke feel like they are natural leaders, do you think they are slowly going to get drawn closer and closer to each other.
So there’s nothing romantic between them?
Do Bellamy and Clarke come to a better understanding of each other?
We talked about the torture scene in episode 7 with Lincoln, and it’s impact on both himself and his character.
I know in the next two episodes, you have a pretty big role in both of them, with the flashback and also with the torture scene. Do you think the scenes with the grounders sort of changes his character, because it does look like he’s been through a lot.
Finally we got a quick question in with Jason Rothenberg about the Grounders and their role in the story.
About Lincoln and the Grounders…
We saw a little bit of this in this past week’s episode, with the new emergence of more grounders and the leader of the grounders played by Dollhouse alum Dichen Lachman. The cast and Rothenberg were all a buzz about the upcoming episodes and especially the finale. No word on what is set for season 2 after their renewal on May 8th, but my opinion of this show has changed 100%. I am psyched for what’s coming up next.
