Armistice Felix Hector and Maeve on Westworld

The mastermind behind Westworld’s stunning costumes, Ane Crabtree, is no stranger to designing for big network shows – she created the look for the pilot episode of HBO’s The Sopranos. She has also been nominated for three Costume Designers Guild Awards for Best Costume Design: for ABC’s Pan Am, Showtime’s Masters of Sex, and HBO’s Westworld. Perhaps inspired by her work on Westworld, Crabtree recently completed the costume design for another project about an oppressive society – Hulu’s upcoming series The Handmaid’s Tale.

Louis Herthum Upped to Series Regular for Season Two

Deadline is reporting that Louis Herthum has been upped to series regular for Westworld’s upcoming second season. He will continue to portray Peter Abernathy, the android father of Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood).

Westworld: The Perfect Dream?

Westworld- The Perfect Dream?

Westworld is set up as an adult playground, a place for the financially fortunate to forget about the rules and restrictions of everyday life and let their hidden desires loose. They can kill, they can steal, they can cheat, they can adventure – all without the worry of any undesired consequences. This all kind of sounds like the stuff of bedtime dreams, right?

Westworld Season 2: Talulah Riley Promoted to Series Regular

Angela on Westworld

Our first introduction to Angela (Talulah Riley) was as William’s (Jimmi Simpson) greeter and guide for his first visit to Westworld. William was awed by her beauty and how realistic she appeared.
