Actress Tasya Teles, who has played recurring character Echo over the last three seasons of The 100, will get more screen time when the CW series returns for Season 5.

Teles has been promoted to series regular, showrunners announced at The 100 Comic-Con panel on Friday.

“I really like Echo’s strength and loyalty,” Teles told fans.

Echo began on The 100 as a member of the Ice Nation and their royal guard, until she was banished by Roan after trying to cheat during the final Conclave. She went into space with the other survivors from Becca’s Island to escape Praimfaya.

The 100 Season 5 will reset the show in key ways with a time jump, flashing forward to six years after Praimfaya ravaged the planet and killed most of the human race.

The 100 Season 5 premieres midseason on The CW.
