THE seventh and final season of The 100 has proved to be packed full of more twists than ever before.
In this week’s episode Charmaine Diyoza (Ivana Milicevic) made an exit of heart-breaking proportions all in the name of family.
The former terrorist has undergone quite the transformation since making her debut on the sci-fi hit, proving to be a protective and selfless mother.
Towards the end of the episode, Diyoza ended up sacrificing herself to save her daughter Hope (Shelby Flannery), ultimately being crystallised by Gen-9.
Milicevic spoke to TV Line about her character’s tragic death and claimed she wanted to be remembered as a “badass pregnant lady who came around to the truth and discovered what was most important, which is love”.
Recounting the moment she was informed about her impending doom by showrunner Jason Rothenberg, she added: “[He] explained what was going to happen, and I said, ‘Of course! This is perfect. Thank you. I’m ready to go.'”
“It was really fitting, and I was really honoured to have such a good one.”
Milicevic also reflected on her character’s development from stereotypical baddie back in season 5 to nuanced femme fatale.
She quipped: “I wish it had more to do with me, but I was originally supposed to be 100-percent bad.”
Milicevic concluded by lifting the lid on the moment she fell pregnant and how show bosses were happy to work it into the wider narrative.

“When I got pregnant in real life [and it was written in], that added all these extra layers to the story,” she continued.
“I wasn’t going to be one of those actresses where you try to hide [the pregnancy]. What was I going to do, hold a basketball or a laundry basket in front of my belly?
“So when the story took that turn, it naturally layered up a bit.”
The comments come after show boss Jason Rothenberg lifted the lid on the future of “devastated, reeling” Clarke in the wake of Bellamy’s explosive death.
He also promised that the upcoming prequel series will “fill in blanks” about the Grounders, Flame and the Ark.
The 100 airs on The CW in the US and on E4 in the UK.
