Ahead of Lindsey’s Directorial Debut, The 100 Star Reflects on Raven’s ‘Saving Grace’ Over 7 Chaotic Seasons

[ Written on July 01 2020 by chloe ]

While Raven appears to be getting a good handle on the ever-expanding universe of The 100, her portrayer’s experience has been slightly different.

“This show does something different every season, and this season is complicated AF,” Lindsey Morgan, who makes her directorial debut with Wednesday’s episode (The CW, 8/7c) tells TVLine. “As a director, getting the lore right is the most important thing. I can’t get the world wrong. So I found myself really studying it, making sure all my T’s were crossed and my I’s were dotted. People are like, ‘Oh, was it easier because you’ve been on the show? And I’m like, ‘No!’”

Morgan also appreciated the opportunity to step into the minds of several characters with whom Raven doesn’t normally interact. Not only is her episode a dramatic showcase for Hope and Diyoza — newly reunited in an alien prison after a decades-long separation — but it also dives deep into the damaged psyche of an empty, heartbroken Echo.

“I approached them the same way I would approach my character,” Morgan says. “It was really just me getting to put myself in the shoes of all my cast mates and thinking how I could help to elevate or inspire them as actors.” (Revealing additional specifics about these characters’ developments would spoil this unpredictable hour. But don’t worry, we’ll go deep after it airs.)

With The 100‘s series finale creeping ever closer, Morgan says she can look back on Raven’s journey with pride. “She’s been through so much, arguably some of the worst things on the show,” Morgan says. “She has failed, but she never fully lost her resilience. She has questioned, but she never fully lost her faith in love and in people and in herself. I feel like she was also tested in every way imaginable, but she never lost her heart — and I don’t think anyone would blame her if she had. I always held onto that for Raven. In the end, it’s her saving grace.”

The end of a long-running show is always a surreal experience, but Morgan says her physical farewell to The 100 was especially “strange” because of the coronavirus pandemic. “It felt like The 100 was seeping into reality,” she says. “It was weird and confusing, but in true 100 fashion, we kept going. We brought our A game and did the best that we could. It was unfortunately very unceremonious at the end because we all had to finish shooting as quickly as possible in order to go home and quarantine. We didn’t have a wrap party, so we didn’t have as much time to say goodbye. We weren’t even allowed to hug!”

Unlike hugs, however, tears were not in short supply. “I remember on that last day, our AD was [announcing everyone’s series wrap], and it was tears every time. And we have a huge cast! So there was a lot of crying, then makeup, then shooting again. It was crazy. We made something really special, and I’m proud of that.”


Lindsey Says Bob Morley Gave Great Advice for Directing Her First Episode

This week’s episode of The 100 is a special one, and not just because it has a couple of big twists headed your way. It also happens to be Lindsey Morgan’s directorial debut for the series!

If you’ve been watching The 100 this year, you’ll know the final season has done a lot of worldbuilding, exploring new planets and an entirely new civilization of humans. Morgan stepped behind the camera for Episode 7, titled “The Queen’s Gambit.” Despite being so familiar with The 100 — seven years tends to give you a certain amount of expertise on how a show operates — Morgan says directing her first episode was still a daunting task. Breaking that new ground, so to speak, came with a lot of responsibility Morgan told TV Guide.

“It’s interesting because it is The 100, so I feel like we do try to do something new every season, bring in a new world, a new society, a new culture,” Morgan said. “So even though I had such a great history and expertise in a lot of places of the show, I still felt the need to be hypersensitive to the new lore that we were creating — the new world, a world of Bardo and their society and their culture because, you know, you just can’t get that wrong. That was probably the most difficult task for me, just making sure, crossing my T’s and dotting my I’s about everything for that society and doing it justice for how Jason envisions it for the rest of the season.”

Given how heavily the people of Bardo and their mysterious war have already played into Season 7, we’re not surprised there was a lot of pressure surrounding this episode, which does answer quite a few questions about the Disciples and their history. Luckily, Morgan had a handy directorial resource at her disposal in the form of her co-star Bob Morley.

Morley directed his first episode of The 100 last year in Season 6, and Morgan says he was very supportive when it was her turn to step behind the camera.

“I actually reached out to Bob at the beginning because I didn’t know I was gonna have the chance to direct until three weeks before I got the approval,” Morgan said. “So I was feeling pretty overwhelmed, and I reached out to Bob and he was very giving with his mentorship and his own experience, and what he felt worked for him and what he wish he did better. That really helped guide me on my process.”
