Who but Lindsey ?

Lindsey Morgan is without a doubt the embodiement of the independant and determinate woman. A strong personnality she also incarns on screen, with the character of Raven Reyes in the series The 100.

As one of the most popular up and coming actresses in the business, Lindsey Morgan has built an extensive resume between her work in television and film. She currently stars as series regular, Raven Reyes, on The CW's popular scifi drama The 100. Within her first year of college, Morgan continuously began booking commercials and print ads. It wasn't long before casting agents took notice of her natural talent and she was later cast for small guest roles in some of television's critically acclaimed series My Generation and Friday Night Lights. She later booked the lead in MTV's original movie DISconnected, which was part of their "A Thin Line" campaign. Lindsey went on to star in the upcoming horror-comedy film Chastity Bites alongside Allison Scagliotti and Francia Raisa. Lindsey's television work has included appearances on "How I Met Your Mother," "Happy Endings," Supah Ninjas," and "A Think Line."

She is still widely recognized for her work as a series regular in the ABC soap "General Hospital", which garnered her a Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series. She most recently wrapped production in the Edward Burns coming-of-age film, "Summertime".

It is therefore quite naturally that CANNESERIES, in association with Serieously, turned to the actress to propose her the Serieously Award.

When ?

The Serieously Award will be presented to the actress on stage in the Palais des Festivals of Cannes, by the co-founders of the website, Allison Josepha and Aurélia Baranes, on Friday 5th April 2019.

Fans of séries, we are waiting for you for CANNESERIES' Second Edition, from 5th to 10th April, under Cannes' sunshine !
