Morning Brew – “The 100” star Eliza Taylor talks Lexa fallout at WonderCon

on

Good morning! 

Two trans men and a lesbian have filed a lawsuit against the state of North Carolina for their new discriminatory law. Joaquín Carcaño, Payton Grey McGarry and Angela Gilmore are named as plaintiffs alongside ACLU of North Carolina and Equality North Carolina in the suit that challenges the H.B.2 as unconstitutional. 

During The 100 panel at WonderCon yesterday, showrunner Jason Rothenberg expanded on his recent (attempted) apology, and Eliza Taylor certainly pleased Clexa fans when she said her favorite scenes to shoot were those with Alycia Debnam-Carey. (Duh!)

“Shooting the Lexa kiss was really great. She’s a babe, A. And it was something that I’ve never gotten to do before… It was really cool to be able to do something like that.” 

Eliza did some great interviews, too, where thoughts on the Lexa fallout were a major theme.
