It's hard to believe I didn't always love Clarke as much as I do now.

Back in season 1, I worried that she was going to become a Mary Sue.
Well, little did I know, she would become one of the most complicated
characters on television! She makes questionable choices and kills people
and is more of an anti-hero than a traditional hero. That's what I love about her.
Her flaws are what make her interesting and make her a powerful lead.
Of course, this character would not exist as she does today without Eliza Taylor,
who I think is the cast member who has shown the most growth on the show.
I've been fortunate enough to meet Eliza 4 times now, and she's always been
so sweet, so funny, and so personable. I admire her not only for her talent,
but for the absolutely incredible educational endeavors she has launched
and continued in Thailand, and I'm happy to be able to support her school.
It's easy to see why Bob fell in love with this woman. She's freaking amazing.

Wow, 50 threads.

What a wonderful milestone for such a great character/actress, and I'm glad that we are finally here.
Clarke has always been one of my favourite characters on the show and Eliza has truly grown as an actor
by leaps and bounds over the years, especially this season ... truly been a joy to watch her onscreen
and she is 100% my MVP for season 6. Watching her tackle two different roles
seamlessly and effortlessly has been so amazing and entertaining to watch (truly),
and I'm looking forward to seeing her in other projects after the show ends.
Eliza's a real talent and deserves to have a long and lasting career after this show is over.

As for Clarke, going into the final season, I just hope that this wonderful character
gets the happy ending and closure that she so deserves (#protectClarke2020)
and I'm looking forward (but also nervous!) to see how her story is wrapped up at the end of season 7.
She's a character who has endured entirely too much pain/tragedy/grief
to last more than a lifetime and she deserves all the happiness at the end of it all.
To many more milestones on this board for Clarke/Eliza.


destroyer of worlds


"You may be the Chancellor, but I'M IN CHARGE."



quotes:


✗ BOB MORLEY
"So proud of my wife, she has such a big heart and cares deeply for the welfare of these children.
Thank you to Claire and @TaoPrimary what you guys are doing is truly amazing!"
"She's the best actor I know."
"Eliza just smashed it . . . it was awesome to see her get to explore different parts of her range . . . She's unbelievable."
✗ RICHARD HARMON
"It's been incredible. I think we can all see what a great job she's done [in season 6].
I said it before the season even aired, this one is for her. I think every season is.
She's our leader, she's our captain, but this one, it was specifically lovely on set
just to see her be able to let loose and kind of let the chains of Clarke go and be this new character."
✗ SACHIN SAHEL
"Whether you are an Aussie soap star or a post apocalyptic princess,
we're all lucky you were born today and that you are you."
"Clarke can talk anyone into anything."
✗ JASON ROTHENBERG
"There is nothing she can’t do. After 5 seasons, I still thank the TV gods she said YES."
"It's a brilliant, brilliant performance by her. I'm so proud of Eliza Taylor."
✗ SELINA WILKEN (of Hypable)
"Where are her awards? WHERE ARE THEY?"
"Clarke is strong, stubborn, and self-sufficient."
"Clarke the human being is not the sum of her arbitrary
strong-female-characterness. Clarke is not a stand-in for women
as a homogenous entity; Clarke is her own person, and this person
does not want to be alone or isolated or loveless."
✗ TRISH BENDIX (of AfterEllen)
"Clarke Griffin’s fierceness is a large part of her appeal,
and Eliza is constantly delivering in her powerful performances."
✗ YANA GREBENYUK (of TV Fanatic)
"There isn’t a spotlight on just her sex and love life, but it is also not shoved aside.
Both her role as a leader and as an amazing bisexual lady
shines through when you watch The 100."





Eliza is a powerhouse.

She's shown great ability to conquer any task thrown her way.
Her characters exhibit great strength, vulnerability, and tremendous heart.
Whether it's through the toughest or greatest of times, you know she'll always
come out on top and that's all thanks to Eliza. I know that she has a long career
ahead of her and I can't wait to see where she goes from here. I expect big things.

NICKNAMES: EJ, Hurricane, Liza-Loo

BIRTHDAY: October 24, 1989

BIRTHPLACE: Australia (Melbourne)

MARRIED to Bob Morley in 2019

CO-FOUNDER of Koh Tao International Primary

BREAKOUT ROLES: Janae Timmins (Neighbours), Clarke Griffin (The 100)

MISCELLANEOUS: Left-handed, lover of Vine app, singer/songwriter




To reference that one iconic video, Clarke Griffin is my "ride or die, home skillet bisCOT."

I will defend her to the death, and while I can acknowledge her flaws and faults,
I will always love her and try to understand her. She's grown so much,
and she deserves so much better than she gets from most people.
I truly want her to be happy because she's been so unfairly burdened by too much responsibility.
Clarke deserves to be loved, explored, and celebrated both by people in her life and the fandom at large.

Thank goodness for Eliza Taylor. Not only would Clarke not be nearly as significant played by anyone else,
but Eliza herself is such a role model that I am so thankful the execs landed her as Clarke.
Eliza makes me want to be a better educator, makes me proud of my body,
and brings so many smiles to my face. I can't wait to meet her again next year.
She deserves all the happiness, love, and support every day.

Eliza is an amazing person.

I love that she built a school in Thailand for those children. I am an elementary teacher and Asian
so that just holds an even more special place in my heart. I have talked about wanting to do more for children
and for other countries, and she is doing just that. Eliza is also an incredible actress.
I love her on The 100 and since have watched some of her other projects like Thumper and Christmas Inheritance!
I love her Australian accent. Having met her in 2018, I can confirm she is just as sweet, humble, and caring in person.
You could tell how much she appreciated us and enjoyed meeting her fans.
To date, she's one of my favorite actresses to have met.

Obviously, Clarke Griffin is my favorite character by Eliza. Clarke Griffin is a strong, independent, and brave woman.
She has endured so much, yet hasn't given up. She has been put in many situations to make tough decisions.
Clarke is a great friend and cares deeply for those she loves. She would go to great lengths to protect her friends,
even at the danger of her own life. I am proud to know Clarke and be an Eliza fan. I love my Clarke Griffin funko pop
that sits on the bookshelf in my room! Seeing her reminds me of strength and perseverance.


cry pretty



"You think you can kill me? HAVE AT IT."



future titles:

The Princess saves herself in this one.
You are damaged and broken and unhinged, but so are shooting stars and comets.
She made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible.
You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.
Choosing to live is an act of defiance.
You are a brutal thing made of flowers.
The bravest thing she ever did was to stay alive each day.
Her passion burned brighter than her fears did.
You are a diamond, dear. They can't break you.
The world needed a hero, so she became one. No superpowers, really, just a strong woman.
Just because you carry it all so well doesn't mean it's not heavy.

Yay, happy 50 threads for amazing Eliza and Clarke!! Here’s to many more milestones for her/on this board.

Still absorbing the awesomeness of the OP but truly amazing, April. I love the GIFs that accompany the testimonials/quotes about her.

Also, her husband’s and castmember quotes about her.

Those GIFs of Eliza eating, Amelia. Adorable.
