Alycia Debnam-Carey shows off her award backstage at the 2016 MTV Fandom Awards held at PETCO Park on Thursday night (July 21) in San Diego, Calif.
The 23-year-old actress accepted the award for Fan Freakout of the Year for the untimely death of Lexa on The 100.
Earlier this year, Alycia opened up about her character’s sudden death on the show and the social outcry.
“I think it was so emotionally overwhelming,” Alycia shared at the time. “The reaction that sparked within people, where I’m reading texts and tweets from people saying, ‘I’m crying and in tears,’ to be able to say you’re a part of that is an amazing thing. I hate thinking people thought it was insensitive, because it was such a beautiful episode for us to shoot as well.”
She added, “I don’t think it was ever intended to aggravate anyone in a social situation. There’s so much love for that character…I hate to hear people wanting to not watch the show anymore for a certain reason like that. I do understand, of course, it’s a social issue.”
