Erica Cerra’s newest role is nothing like the tough-talking cop she portrayed on the beloved sci-fi series Eureka. On The CW’s post-apocalyptic drama The 100, Cerra trades in her deputy badge for eerie holographic effects as A.L.I.E., a mysterious, yet determined AI created to make life better and save the human race. In Season 3, her character introduces the saving powers of The City of Light — and reveals her penchant for red. The actress talked about what’s next for A.L.I.E. and answered our 26 burning questions.
