Marie Avgeropoulos is best known for playing Octavia Blake on the hit CW series The 100 but she’s taking on a very different project with Wonder Woman: Bloodlines. She’s the voice [of] Silver Swan in the animated film, which is available now. “It’s very interesting because I had never done any voiceover work before,” Marie told HollywoodLife during our sit-down interview. “They came to me and somebody out there liked my voice and I could not believe that a project with such volume came into my life. I’m so grateful.”

Silver Swan possesses the ability to fly and has a sonic cry. She’s also known for being an enemy to Wonder Woman. However, Marie notes that Silver Swan and Wonder Woman do have some similarities and their dynamic is explored in Wonder Woman: Bloodlines. “Both of them have mommy issues and how they decide to sort that out is very interesting, and they definitely use their warrior characteristics to sort it out in the end,” Marie continued. “But it’s very interesting at the beginning of the movie that I start out as a teenage girl, so you see the progression, which is wonderful between the two characters.”

Marie is well aware that the Wonder Woman fanbase is incredibly strong. “I’ve been a part of the sci-fi world for the last 7 years of my life, so I know how loyal the fans are and how eager they were for me to progress into a project such as this one,” she said. “It was really interesting to just do a job where I can use my voice instead of my body. So it was different for me as a person to explore that.”

New York Comic Con hosted the world premiere of Wonder Woman: Bloodlines on October 4, and the cast had a panel afterwards.

What can you tell us about your character, Silver Swan?
That she’s the best. I can tell you a few things about her without spoiling this evening’s premiere. It’s my very first animated feature I’ve ever done in my life so I’m really honored to tell such a kickass story, like Wonder Woman: Bloodlines. And you’ll see different stages of Silver Swan, where she starts off as young Vanessa, so I got to play her in the adolescent version until she goes to high school and becomes gothic and pissed off at her mom and resentful, as we do when we are teenage girls, and then the complicated relationship that she has with Diana. Diana quickly becomes the favorite child in the household, and, of course, that doesn’t make Vanessa happy. So to see the animosity between these two characters, especially as they grow into women, is really interesting, and I can’t wait for you guys to see it unfold.

What are some of the biggest challenges that you experienced doing an animated film for the first time?
One of the most challenging things for me was I did it completely Han Solo, by that I mean you’re in the booth by myself, and today’s the first time I’ve actually ever met any of the cast. So it’s really awesome to see how individually we all made our mark in this movie and how it’s all come together, and it’s such a fantastic project. I’ve seen it. You guys are going to freak out, it’s really good. Made with a lot of love.

What do you like about voice-acting as opposed to on-camera acting? A lot of actors love the freedom it gives them. How did you find the process?
I found the process totally different, such because I’ve never really done it before. And you’re right, you do get a lot more freedom because the cartoon doesn’t even exist yet. You’re just making things up into a microphone and going off a script and making it your own. And then, you do a second pass at it when then they’ve created the character, and you’ve seen it. And now you’re matching up, you know, you’re syncing up the flats they call it, that’s the technical term, from what I was told. So, yeah, it’s a weird process because you are alone doing it, but it’s incredibly freeing and liberating all at once, it’s both.

Fans will soon know the fate of their favorite characters when “The 100” returns April 24 for Season 5!

When “The 100” left off, Octavia, Indra, Jaha, Abby, Kane and many others took refuge in an underground bunker to escape Praimfaya, and were presumably still there when the show jumped six years into the future.

ExtraTV.com caught up with actresses Marie Avgeropoulos (who was joined by her dog Chewy) and Adina Porter on the set in Vancouver, where they dished with reporters about what’s in store for their characters Octavia and Indra, as well their bunker-mates.

Marie warned that “Octavia has changed quite a bit,” adding that she has found a creative way to “help all the clans get along.”

Avgeropoulos explained, “There’s a lot of old resentments among all the clans and old resentments don’t die. So she has to come up with a very Octavia way to maintain order among the groups.”

She teased this foreboding tidbit: “Resources are running extremely low and actually come to a halt so we have to come up with a new tactic… of nutritioning our bodies.”

Luckily, she has her general Indra by her side. Porter said, “We get to spend a lot of time together since underground there aren’t a lot of places you can go. I get to spend time with both my daughters, my faith-based flame keeper daughter Gaia, and my warrior daughter Octavia… we are still close.”

It sounds like the friendship between Octavia and Indra has grown stronger without Octavia’s brother Bellamy around. Avgeropoulos said, “It is interesting to see what Octavia has become without her brother trying to steer her in the right direction. It gives an opportunity for other characters like Indra to give her advice… it is a good season to see the independence and whether she makes good or bad decisions.”

No word on when Octavia and Bellamy (once he makes it back to Earth, of course) will be reunited, but Adina did explain that the survivors in the bunker don’t have communication with the outside world.

“There is no way to see outside. There is a way for people who might survive on the outside to see if people down below can hear them,” she said, adding “People are desperately trying to see if there are more humans on Earth.”

Of course many characters took refuge in the bunker including Jaha. What does that mean? The first-ever scene between Octavia and Jaha! Marie said, “I’ve never had a scene with Isaiah [Washington] ever, and this season I do so it is very new to see that dynamic on the screen and the show.”

What about Abby and Kane? Adina confirmed they are still “leaders in their community” and “in love” while helping to create the “one crew” amongst the clans.

Be sure to watch “The 100” Season 5 premiere April 24 on The CW!

The diverse Indian culture attracts a number foreign celebrities to the country. The Braj region in particular, being the birthplace of Lord Krishna, attracts a large number of foreign visitors every year.

by Siraj Qureshi for India Today

One such foreign traveller is Marie Avgeropoulos, a Canadian-born actress and one of the stars of Emmy-nominated sci-fi series, The 100, arrived in Mathura recently to visit Sandipan Muni, a school for poor kids operated by the Food for Life organisation.

During her visit, Marie interacted with students and teachers at Sandipan Muni, to gain more knowledge about their culture, education system and way of life. The actress also went a step ahead and adopted one of the kids at school, taking responsibility of his education.

Marie has been connected with Food For Life for over a year now, and on June 15, 2017, Marie hosted an event for the benefit of Food for Life Vrindavan in Los Angeles. The event featured a documentary about the charity, which was created by Marie’s Without Exception Films.

While talking to India Today, Marie–whose movie career started in 2009 with I Love You Beth Cooper–said she got an opportunity to connect with Lord Krishna in this visit and got to know India more closely than she ever could’ve while living in the United States. She also said that it was her childhood dream to learn about Krishna and India, which was realised by her association with Food for Life.

Rupa Raghunath Das, the founder of Food For Life said, “Marie’s visit was a very exciting event for the kids of the school; she has set a great example by adopting a child, which will prompt other foreign guests to do the same. If Bollywood actors also followed this example, these kids will have a shot at equal opportunity and quality education, like so many other children in the country.”
