The 25-year-old Aussie actress opened up about The 100, hearing the call and what’s next. Check it:
On catching the acting bug: “I went to drama class and I think my parents were relieved because they wanted me to put this newfound energy I had acquired into something a little bit more productive.”
On similarities with her character, Clarke: “I’d like to think that I’m tough. The only way I can equate it to be that she’s put in a situation where people assume she’s going to fail and that it’s just too hard. I feel like a lot of people in the industry and even those who aren’t in the industry put that kind of stress on actors and creative people because it is such a tough place to be successful in. I do have a very keen determination to be successful no matter what people tell me or what they assume about me. I find that to be similar about myself and Clarke, but obviously they are very different situations.”
On her next gig: “This movie [November Man] was a very big deal for me. I got a call saying that I need to test for this role and after landing it, the next day they’re putting me on a plane to Serbia. It was mental. It was an incredible experience, especially working with Pierce Brosnan. When I told my mom, she literally lost it. She’s a huge fan.”
Be sure to watch The 100‘s two-part finale, which starts TOMORROW on The CW.
