Everyone who watched the fantastic TV series "The Hundred" probably remembered the actress Marie Avgeropoulos - a bright, feminine and at the same time bold and persistent girl. Friends of Marie note that in life she is very similar to a rebel with her independent character.
Her character from the series is somewhat similar to her in her teens.
The future actress was born in the Canadian city of Thunder Bay in 1986. All her childhood was spent in nature: a lake, a fire, fishing and a tent in the night forest. Marie's childhood passed in these classes, and by adolescence a spirit of contradiction awoke in her, and she began to express her protest through her appearance: a shaved head, baggy clothes and a collar with metal spikes.
And in the evenings at home, she knocked on the drum kit with sticks, and this is not at all a woman's business. Perhaps this was another form of protest.
She denied everything and everyone, and she often had to confront public opinion. This became a kind of hardening before entering adulthood.
Suddenly, the parents found out that their child wants to become a television star. The resistance was useless, and they let their daughter go to Confederate College to enter the faculty of television broadcasts.
Having received her education, Marie tried to break into one of the TV channels, but at first nothing came out. Then she began to try her hand at the theater, and she did it well.
Then Avgeropoulos was cast in advertising for Toyota Scion cars and banking services of Credit Unions of British Columbia. So she learned what it is like to work in front of the camera and without an auditorium.
Career as an actress
They say the truth - "the ways of the Lord are inscrutable." Who would have thought that a fascination with percussion instruments would help Marie make her debut in a feature film? Nevertheless, when she got to the casting in Vancouver, where the drummers were selected, she was noticed by the famous director Chris Columbus. He invited the girl to shoot in the movie "A Night with Beth Cooper". This youth comedy did not cause much excitement among the audience, but it had a good box office.
Prior to this film, the actress had roles in serials, but full length is a completely different matter. Of the Canadian TV series, the audience remembered the project "Supernatural" more than others, which was nominated for many awards in various categories. Marie played a not very noticeable role here, but with each season she gained experience and professionalism.
These qualities were very useful to her after moving to California, where the actress went to conquer Hollywood. Fortunately, she did not become one of the thousands of applicants for roles in popular films. In 2010, Marie starred in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. Yes, it was just an episode, but it was already the beginning of a career in the "forge of stars".
In 2011, she played a small role in the film Life is Beautiful. The actress remembered these shootings for the fact that she was on the same set with famous actors: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Angelica Houston, Bryce Dallas Howard and others.
By the age of twenty-six, Avgeropoulos began to realize that she was becoming an in-demand actress, because in 2012 she starred in three films at once: "Walking the Halls", "Overgrown" and "Runaway". Moreover, in the last film she had the main role.
The actress's portfolio includes many series that have gained popularity among viewers: Supernatural (2005- …), Edge (2008-2013), Eureka (2006-2012), Live Target (2010-2011). However, the most popular series, according to viewers and critics, is the series "The Hundred" (2014- …). Here Marie plays one of the main roles - Octavia Blake. Together with the exciting plot and those situations that arise in the lives of the heroes, you can see the amazing play of Marie and Ricky Whittle, who played lovers. The flighty and wayward Octavia becomes a completely different person next to him.
The series "The Hundred" has become so popular that the creators decided to extend the shooting, and now seven seasons have already been released. Moreover, the heroine Marie does not fade into the background, which means that the director appreciates her as an actress and she is important for the project.
Marie Avgeropoulos sometimes has a lot of problems with her independent character. So, in 2018, she was arrested for domestic violence. It turned out that during a quarrel, she hit her boyfriend, and he had bruises from the beatings. Rather than calm the girl down, Quincy Paglaro called the police. He did not know that the US had different laws than Canada and that Marie would be taken to the station. But that is what happened, and then he had to pay fifty thousand dollars in bail in order for his girlfriend to be released.
With regard to past romantic relationships, the first lover of the actress was Taylor Lautner. They met in 2013 on the set and started dating. The audience knows Taylor from the movie "Twilight". A beautiful couple appeared in public, attended social events. Taylor even said that it was the first time in his life. However, in 2015, they broke up with Marie.
Also in the tabloids wrote that she had an affair with actor Bob Morley - he also played in "The Hundred". However, in this project she has so many different connections that you can guess endlessly. For example, when she portrayed lesbian love, it was also very believable. Therefore, much that happens on the screen, according to the actress herself, should not be transferred to real life.
In 2015, Marie met Quincy Paglaro, who works as an operator. He was already married and has three children. But despite different circumstances, Marie and Quincy are together. They often have Paglaro's children and everyone is having fun.
Marie tries to lead a healthy lifestyle, goes in for sports and keeps in excellent shape.
