Leonardo Nam Talks Felix’s Backstory and Relationship with Maeve

Leonardo Nam Fears His Own Character's Death

Australian native Leonardo Nam has quickly become a Westworld fan favorite, having done a wonderful job portraying the anxious but lovable Felix Lutz in the show’s first season.

The actor recently found some time to speak with Awards Daily about his experiences playing Felix, and in particular, why he thinks Felix and host-gone-rogue Maeve (Thandie Newton) developed such a close relationship over the course of her android awakening.

While Felix and Maeve do end up spending a lot of time together over the first season, which inevitably allows them the opportunity to build a relationship with each other, Nam explains that their connection is forged on a much deeper level:

Westworld Rewind: Episode 3, “The Stray”

Elsie & Bernard_The Stray

By the end of Westworld’s second episode, we have a pretty good grasp of how the park functions, or at least how it’s supposed to function. High paying guests are transported to Delos headquarters, where they are dressed in their Western garb and then whisked into the park, at which point they are free to pursue all guilty pleasures their hearts desire, under the guarantee of safety and protection from any physical harm.

However, we’re now aware that there seems to be an issue with a recent coding update, causing some hosts to recall previous builds, and in response either malfunctioning (like Peter Abernathy [Louis Herthum]) or lashing out in uncharacteristic ways (like Walter [Timothy Lee DePriest]).

“The Stray” continues to build upon this sense that something is definitely not right within the park. Among the various storylines, Elsie (Shannon Woodward) and Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) are called upon to track down the vectoring Woodcutter (Tait Fletcher). Wyatt’s (Sorin Brouwers) story is uploaded into Teddy (James Marsden) as the source anchoring his painful, and up to this point unknown, backstory. And the mysterious Arnold is described to Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) as Dr. Ford’s (Anthony Hopkins) late partner and the co-creator of the fantasy park and its inhabitants.

Showrunner Jonathan Nolan Teases Westworld Season 2 Premiere Title!

Jonathan Nolan on Westworld

It’s no secret that Westworld showrunner Jonathan Nolan likes to play with fans on Reddit. He has admitted to keeping tabs the r/westworld subreddit and being amazed at how quickly people were guessing the plot twists for season one. He also joked about having to change a season two plot twist because Redditors already figured it out. Last year, when someone asked what happens to all of Dolores’ (Evan Rachel Wood) paintings, Nolan commented, “Doesn’t look like anything to me” and linked to a gif of never-before-seen footage from the show.

Now it looks like Nolan is at it again. Redditor Brew_Swillis posted asking if users could refrain from submitting “endless” maze images on the site. Nolan (a verified Reddit user) commented, “Nope” and linked to a very interesting picture, which appears to give us a slight little hint about the season two premiere. Mild spoiler below the cut.
