As Wednesday rolls around our social media feeds will be filled with #WCWs, and PopWrapped decided to finally get in on the fun. For the few of you that don’t know, #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday) is a means to celebrate the women that we admire, and we’re kicking off this new column with a blonde-haired Aussie who kicks major butt in the real world and post-apocalyptic world. That’s right, our very first WCW is Eliza Taylor!

Who Is She?

You probably best know her as the Australian actress that broke into the American network TV scene as Clarke Griffin on The CW’s hit post-apocalyptic show The 100. She also recently starred in acclaimed indie movie Thumper, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and has since been acquired by The Orchard.

Why Is She Our WCW?

She Plays the First Bisexual Lead on Network TV

There are a million and one reasons why Eliza Taylor earns the spot as our very first WCW. Among those reasons is the fact that she plays the first bisexual lead on network TV, and it is a title that she takes very seriously. “People want to be loved and need connection to survive in this world, and whether that comes from a man or a woman doesn’t really matter,” Taylor told Entertainment Weekly shortly after “Bodyguard of Lies” aired, the episode in which Clarke Griffin’s sexuality was revealed. “I think that was just a really lovely thing to hear and a really lovely thing to play.”

Furthermore, Clarke Griffin has done wonders for bisexual visibility in pop culture and entertainment (not to mention that Taylor plays a kickass leading lady!), and it’s something that many fans have found a deep connection with. In fact, it’s a topic that is frequently brought up when fans meet Taylor at conventions.

She’s Charitable

From fighting for affordable and accredited education and building a not for profit school in Thailand to raising money for a little girl battling cancer, Eliza Taylor has proven time and time again that she’s charitable.

She’s Relatable…

…and not in those cheesy “Celebs, they’re just like us” kind of ways. When we say she’s relatable, we mean she’s RELATABLE.

From her dread of working out…

…to her long Netflix binges…

…to struggling with math…

…when we say that she’s relatable, we really do mean that she’s relatable.

This list could go on for pages and pages, leaving you scrolling and scrolling through a never-ending article, but we’ll stop it here for now. Eliza Taylor, you’ve stolen our hearts, and we can’t wait to see what’s next!
