The 100 Season 3 Adds Brenda Strong as an Ice Queen

at . Comments

Fairly little is known of the Ice Nation in the post-apocalyptic world of The 100.

What we know now is that Brenda Strong will be front and center as Queen Nia of the Ice Nation. 

Brenda Strong

Strong is known for her work as the long-time narrator and dearly departed neighborhood friend on Desperate Housewives, and more recently, as Ann Ewing on the Dallas revival.

As first reported by EW, the Queen has reigned over her nation for many years while "holding onto power through ruthlessness and savvy.” Further details about her character say, “She does what she must to maintain her power, even when it puts her at odds with those closest to her."

She sounds like any good queen, right? And a lot like many of the other strong (no pun intended) and worthwhile female leaders who have found themselves going head-to-head on earth recently. 

Strong is one of several new adult cast members for The 100 Season 3, including Zach McGowan as a rogue Grounder and Michael Beach as Pike, a touch and charismatic Arker we will soon get to know.

If you need to catch up on all things Earth before the new season, there's plenty of time! You can watch The 100 online via TV Fanatic.

The 100 Quotes

Lexa: My fight is over.
Clarke: No, I won't accept that.
Lexa: You were right, Clarke. Life is about more than just surviving.
Clarke: In peace may you leave the shore. In love may you find the next. Safe passage on your travels until our final journey on the ground... May we meet again.

Here we go again. Bellamy, if you can hear me, if you're alive, it's been 2,199 days since Praimfaya. I don't know why I still do this every day. Maybe it's my way of staying sane, not forgetting who I am. Who I was. It's been safe for you to come down for over a year now. Why haven't you? The bunker's gone silent, too. We tried to get them out for awhile, but there was too much rubble. I haven't made contact with them either. Anyway, I still have hope. Tell Raven to aim for the one spot of green, and you'll find me. The rest of the planet from what I've seen basically sucks, so... Never mind. I see you.
