VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: Richard Harmon Reveals Why He Cried At End Of ‘The 100’
Richard Harmon revealed his most memorable moments from shooting The 100‘s final season, and teased some details on what fans can expect in the end from his character, Murphy.
“We were able to finish shooting our final season, literally right at the last second before everything shut down so it’s in the can,” Harmon explained to uInterview Founder Erik Meers. “We’ve done it, which is pretty crazy to think after seven years that I’ll never go back and do that again, which is crazy. Sad but also exciting for the future.”
Harmon said that some of his most memorable moments on set this season were of him realizing that the show he worked on for seven years was coming to an end.
“As we were winding down, you know towards the end, the tears, for me at least, started flowing pretty freely on set,” he said. “Almost everyday I was just like ‘I think that’s the last time I’m gonna do this,’ or ‘that’s the last time I’m going to do this,’ or ‘that’s the last time I’m going to take a piss in my trailer.’
“So I think the entirety of season seven was kind of that, it was like a bit of a like a victory lap,” he said.
In season seven, Murphy will be in a leadership position, Harmon revealed.
“Usually I’m, you know, the wildcard, off on the side, who kind of makes the kind of decisions he wants to make,” said Harmon. “But in this one he is actually going to be responsible for a certain number of people, and the decisions that he makes will affect their lives and whether they live or die.”
Now that shooting for The 100 has ended, Harmon said he was excited to move on to other things, but the COVID-19 lockdown put a hold on his plans.
“I think I was ready to be excited for the future, and then boom, this whole thing hit and then it was like okay well your excitement is going need to be put on layaway until we can find out a way to be safe and be able to do our jobs.”
The final season of The 100 airs every Wednesday at 8 p.m. on the CW and streams for free on Thursdays on cwtv.com.
