Dragon Con has been making quite a few guest announcements over the past couple of weeks, and most of them feature one or more cast members from various shows. Today’s announcements feature three members of the cast of The CW’s sci-fi/dystopian series The 100: Jarod Joseph, Sachin Sahel and Lindsey Morgan.
The 100 began as a show about survivors who lived on a space station after Earth’s atmosphere was destroyed by a series of nuclear bombs. Now that the space station survivors are back on Earth, there has been a major power-struggle between them and the various Grounder clans – the descendants of the people who were left behind on Earth, as well as within their own ranks.
Joseph plays Nathan Miller, one of the original 100 juveniles offenders sent back down to Earth in order to ascertain whether the Earth’s atmosphere was safe. Sachin Sahel plays Jackson, the medical assistant of the Skaikru nation, the name given to the survivors once they returned to live on Earth. Lindsey Morgan plays Raven Reyes, a super intelligent woman who is pretty much the technological brains of Skaikru. All three actors have been on the show since it’s first season, and all of their characters are dealing with some major issues on the show.
You can listen to myself, Cat and Eric talk about The 100 on episode #244 of the Sci-Fi Party Line Podcast.
