Lindsey Morgan, the star of sci-fi drama “The 100,” received the festival’s Rising Star award. Morgan paid tribute to the potential of series to “inspire” and “empower.”
“Sharing someone’s story has the power to inspire and empower someone else’s [life] and that’s what’s great about storytelling,” she said.
Morgan added that series have the power to “move something deep within us in order to make us feel more connected with each other, with ourselves, with our world, our past, our future.” Series allowed people to share “the most epic story of all: the story of the human spirit,” she said.
