Alycia Debnam-Carey happily signs autographs for her fans during the Fear of the Walking Dead panel during PaleyFest held at Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday (March 19).
During the panel, the 22-year-old actress opened up about leaving Lexa behind on The 100 and the social media reaction the character caused.
“I think it’s incredible to see such a passionate response,” she shared. “I think it’s important for me to note that that decision was never made from a negative point of view; it was never an attempt to bait or to enflame a social issue. It was a creative choice and it didn’t come at the expense of thinking about a social issue — maybe it should have more.”
Alycia continued, “But I definitely want fans to think that the love for Lexa on the show and a collaboration that we’ve all made on that show has only come from a good place.”
So, could Lexa ever be resurrected on the show? “I must say, I always — from experience when I watch TV shows and I see characters leave without a proper explanation or leave with not enough time, I get irritated. I like it when there’s a clean-cut reason or a defining moment where they have to go. Whether that’s death or not, I think that’s subjective,” Alycia said.
