Every show needs comedic relief. It’s what keeps us going after blow after blow of pain, death, and misery. And for two seasons Christopher Larkin’s character Monty on The 100 has been that for us. The only problem with being the comedic relief is that his scenes were few and they never delved into the kind of man Monty is. Luckily (well not for the residents of Mount Weather), the end of Season 2 set off a chain of events that would give us an inside look at one of the most overlooked survivors of The Ark.
We chatted with The 100 star Christopher Larkin at WonderCon where he discussed his crumbling friendship with Jasper, his own sense of agency, and where he’d like to see his character go.
He went on to say that, “It’s a hard dose of reality that I hope he gets. Without it…it’s what makes you fully human, love. And he doesn’t have that in a romantic sense yet.”
Watch our full interview with Christopher Larkin below, where confesses his love for cougars, talks a little bit more about his BFF Jasper, and his dilemma with wanting to chose his mother’s side but knowing that it’s not all black and white.
The 100 returns Thursday, March 31st @ 9/8c on The CW.
