Tasya Teles’ character Echo on the show The 100 is one of the mysteries characters of the show, despite being a key character since the second season.
Nothing much related to Echo’s background is known. Except that she was the member of Azgeda royal guard who was held captive on Mount Weather for her fresh blood and later was rescued by Bellamy Blake. But it seems like this is going to change with the upcoming season.
While talking to the press, Teles said that Echo’s backstory will finally be revealed in the upcoming season. She said:
“That’s one of the things that I’ve been hoping for and asking for the last couple of years. Even for myself as an actor, I had ruminated about what her backstory was, so to have an opportunity to share that for the first time was really exciting. It’s good to have a lens into what creates a person and how they came to be the way that they are. I’m really excited to be able to share that with the audience and explore her storyline a little more.”
She also revealed that the upcoming season will also focus on the romantic relationship between Echo and Bellamy.
“We’re going to see the two of them, they worked together well as a pair,” Teles promised. “We’re going to definitely explore that relationship, but we also are going to see more of how the relationship strengthens each of them, and what is it that each provides to the other within that. But they operate as a great unit,” she said.
The 100 will return its sixth season starting April 30 at 9 pm ET/PT. The show stars Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Marie Avgeropoulos, Bob Morley, Henry Ian Cusick, Lindsey Morgan, Richard Harmon, and Tasya Teles.
