OBSCURAE MAGAZINE

Hello Lindsey, how are you?

LINDSEY MORGAN

I’m great! I’m answering from my bed while in pajamas and eating snacks.

OBSCURAE MAGAZINE

What made you want to get started in your acting career?

LINDSEY MORGAN

I always loved playing “pretend” or using my imagination, but I remember being deeply moved by the bravery of actors.They’re fearless to perform in front of hundreds and expose themselves and embody all aspects of the human spirit. I just thought if I could be a little like that, like them, then l’d be happy.

OBSCURAE MAGAZINE

Did you always see yourself being a actress?

LINDSEY MORGAN

Not at all! I wasn’t sure what I saw myself being. For Career Day I was a Spice Girl. All I knew was that I wanted to be creative and free, but also help people.

Did you have any struggles with anxiety and depression in your career?

LINDSEY MORGAN

Yes, depression runs in both sides of my family, so it is something I can be prone to. I am sensitive already and am always exploring my emotions and trying not to push them away. This career can be very demanding of your heart. There is a ton of rejection, financial and career instability and insecurity, the requirement to travel and never be rooted in one place for long, and long hours pouring yourself out emotionally without being repenished. Even though you’re acting, your body and your heart feels real emotion coming out and is affected by it. I can’t fake cry, it always has to come from a real place of hurting. Not to mention this career can put your life under a microscope and there’s a certain demand to always be perfect, and if you’re not, you risk being “exposed”. If you’re not 100% confident in yourself (which at 20 when I started, I wasn’t anywhere near), it is so easy to be shaken and taken advantage of and feed into the negative, self defeating voices in your head.

OBSCURAE MAGAZINE

If so, how did you overcome them?

LINDSEY MORGAN

It took me a really long time to realize exactly what I was feeling or going through, or why i wasnt happy when I was successful and seemingly living my dream. I was encouraged to go to therapy and just talk about how I felt.
At first, I felt so dumb or less than or weak for having to go talk to someone about my “stupid, champagne problems”. But I realized after going through that, my thoughts were so self-defeating and unhealthy. I was treating myself badly and hurting my spirit. I discovered the self-defeating stories I was telling myself and the negative patterns in my life I was living and I changed them slowly, one by one.I forced myself to examine and process and reevaluate. I know a lot of people don’t believe in therapy. but it helped me, my work and my personal growth immensely. I feel like I understand more about myself and others because of it, which grants me a higher level of empathy for others and the world.

What was your favorite acting role?

LINDSEY MORGAN

I think my favorite acting role to date is Debbie Espinoza, in SUMMER-TIME. SUMMERTIME is an indie film I did last summer that just got into the Tribecca Film Festival! So I’m very excited about that. I loved Debbie so much because she was a part of me that I hadn’t been connected to in a long time. She brought out a very passionate, sensual and carefree side of me that I dont always let out because I have so many responsibilities. I loved the freedom she brought to my life.

OBSCURAE MAGAZINE

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

LINDSEY MORGAN

The dream, the plan, is to be starring in movies and TV, and creating my own content and art. Possibly married and definitely kids at some point. Basically, being an overall boss and happy.

OBSCURAE MAGAZINE

What dreams do you still have that you want to make?

LINDSEY MORGAN
I have always dreamt of being on Broadway. That’s a huge one for me.

OBSCURAE MAGAZINE

What was it like growing up in Texas?

LINDSEY MORGAN
Flat. Very flat. Kidding! It was great. I grew up ina very suburban area. Classic neighborhood track home. I had a very normal childhood but I wouldn’t change it for the world.I feel like sometimes I can be in some crazy situations and my upbringing will forever ground me and inspire me.

OBSCURAE MAGAZINE

What is it like working on set for the show The 100?

LINDSEY MORGAN

The 100 is great! It’s such a funny set, because when we are rolling everyone is very serious and intense but the moment we call ‘cut’ usually everyone is goofing off and laughing and having fun. I am happy to have grown up on it and have learned so much from my time. I will cherish my experience forever.

What are your thoughts on animals helping with anxiety and depression?

LINDSEY MORGAN

I remember growing up, I had two dogs and one of them passed away from cancer and the other ( a labrador), who was generally always happy, became very sad and not herself. I remember my mom telling me she was grieving the loss of her friend and was depressed. It made an impact on me on ow similar we are to animals and how we both are capable of feeling love and loss.

That being said, animals are amazing companions, and I think they can recognize our suffering and bring pure love and energy to the forefront of our daily lives. It helps feeling a sense of closeness to a living thing.

OBSCURAE MAGAZINE

Do you find working animals a good resource for those who suffer from anxiety to get out in the outside world?

LINDSEY MORGAN

I think and have read that working with animals is an excellent relief for anxiety. It’s a beautiful reminder about the beauty of life. Animals can only be themselves and be present and that is an excellent reminder for us to have, to not overthink and just be and give love.

OBSCURAE MAGAZINE

This month we are doing an issue that is going toward supporting animal rescues, do you have any thoughts on that?

LINDSEY MORGAN
I think animal rescues are great. Animals are without a voice and it’s ultimately up to us to always be their voice and help them as much as we can.
