7. Meaning Behind Their Names
Many of the characters names are taken from famous science fiction writers. Blake Bellamy is comes from Edward Bellamy; Clarke Griffin comes from Arthur C. Clarke; Wells Jaha comes from H.G. Wells; and Octavia Blake comes from Octavia Butler.
The character Lexa doesn’t exist in the books and was created for the TV show. The actress who plays Lexa, Alycia Debnam-Carey, didn’t even have to audition for the part – it was offered to her! Debnam-Carey was also being considered for the role of Alicia Clarke on Fear the Walking Dead, which she also landed.
