Vixen Chat: Actress Lindsey Morgan Talks Following Her Dreams and ‘The 100′
What was your first job ?
I was the assistant manager of a TV warehouse in Houston, Texas. I only called myself the assistant manager because it was just me and the manager who worked there. The warehouse was such a small mom & pop type store, it was amazing we stayed open as long as we did. The store was also a buy, use, sell… which was interesting. We had a lot of crazy customers trying to sell us their shit, usually shit no one wanted (laughs).
What did you buy with you first big paycheck?
A pretty pair of Christian Louboutins! I got a big paycheck from a movie I did and to celebrate I bought a pair. After that, I told myself I would wear them forever (laughs).
What movie or TV show inspired you to become an actress?
My mom took me to see Big starring Tom Hanks when I was little. I remember the FAO Schwartz keyboard scene and how fun that was. That moment made me want to be an actress.
When I didn’t get the Friday Night Lights gig. I was pretty heartbroken about that.
What was it like seeing yourself on screen for the first time?
I was in this indie movie called Detention and I went to a private screening. It was cool and also cringe-worthy. I was like, “Oh my god, I gotta get a nose job (laughs).”
