We caught up with the Canadian actress on the carpet at the 2016 CW Upfronts where she looked back on the Octavia-Lincoln relationship.
“Of course, myself as an actress I was so sad to see Ricky Whittle go,” Marie told JJJ. “He’s a wonderful man and we have a great friendship. That romance was so deserved. They made so many epic sacrifices for one another. It was the classic, forbidden Romeo and Juliet romance. That’s the way it started and that’s the way it ended. It was horrible and beautiful all at the same time. That’s all they kept doing, is sacrificing their lives for one another. That’s exactly how the story ended and I feel like that chapter in a respectful way, in terms of the romance.”
As for the future, Marie said, “Next season, you’re going to see Octavia take a lot of really dark turns and uncover some really nasty layers. That will be exciting for me as an actress. She’s always evolving and changing.”
Earlier in the year, Ricky claimed he was “bullied” off the show.
The 100 is set to return in 2017.
