As one of the most popular up and coming Latina actresses in the business, Lindsey Morgan has built an extensive resume between her work in television and film. She was most recently seen in “The 100” as genius Raven Reyes. Morgan currently stars in The CW’s highly anticipated new series “Walker” as Micki Ramirez, one of the first female Texas Rangers.
