The 100” star Lindsey Morgan has been set as the lead in the independent thriller “Lasso,” Variety has learned.

The thriller centers around Morgan’s character and Andrew Jacobs’ character as they navigate life working for a senior community center. Their lives are turned upside down when they find themselves fighting to stay alive against a group of psycho, bloodthirsty cowboys from the local rodeo.

Morgan portrays Raven Reyes in the CW drama “The 100,” which is currently airing its third season and has been renewed for a fourth. She also starred on “General Hospital” in 2012-13 as Kristina Davis.

Morgan is represented by CAA and Luber Roklin Entertainment.
