I’d like to think that I’m tough. The only way I can equate it to be that she [Clarke] is put in a situation where people assume she’s going to fail and that it’s just too hard. I feel like a lot of people in the industry and even those who aren’t in the industry put that kind of stress on actors and creative people because it is such a tough place to be successful in. I do have a very keen determination to be successful no matter what people tell me or what they assume about me. I find that to be similar about myself and Clarke, but obviously they are very different situations.
Okay I have a headcanon that Alex plays the drums/ukulele/both because Drums = punk rock phase Ukulele = badass DEO agent with tiny ukulele? Yes. Plus they'd give her thousands of gay points, I mean, Alex with a bandana on her head, sweating, playing drums? Maggie would spontaneously combust
