When The 100 returns for its fifth season in 2018, Clarke’s young charge will look a little different than you might remember.
Lola Flanery, known to Shadowhunters fans as the Seelie Queen’s non-Sarah Hyland form, will take over the recurring role of Madi, TVLine has confirmed. The character, introduced in the Season 4 finale, was originally played by Imogen Tear.
This relationship is hugely important for Clarke,” executive producer Jason Rothenberg tells TVLine of her connection with the young Nightblood. “She’s been with her for five years. They are, for all intents and purposes, bonded the way a mother and daughter would be. So Clarke loves her, and her decision-making process has changed, just as it does for anyone who has a child. … We’ll tell the story of how they came together in Season 5, and how they’ve been surviving as the only two people on the planet.”
Flanery’s casting was first announced in an interview with TV Series Hub.
