In the clip, star Evan Rachel Wood discusses some of the complexities of her character, the formidable Dolores Abernathy, and her progression from a “young, innocent, pure farm girl” to the vengeful sharpshooter we witness her become in the final scene of the first season as she takes out Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) and a slew of human guests invited to celebrate the unveiling of Ford’s new narrative.
Wood says that her character’s “biggest moments are when she starts going against her programming”, and admits “we still aren’t quite sure just how deep Dolores goes.” Check out the full clip here:
Perhaps we are indeed witnessing Dolores’ gradual turn against her programming, in an attempt to break the chains that have trapped her as the “damsel” for so many years, while simultaneously progressing towards the prize of sentience at the end of the maze. Or perhaps this ‘new’ Dolores is just the product of Wyatt’s programming making itself known, which would suggest that the host is not actually going against her design, but rather embracing a new part of it.
Westworld’s Season 1 Digital HD Release will be available on platforms including Amazon Video, CinemaNow, iTunes, PlayStation, Vudu, and Xbox beginning March 6. The bonus content will include Wood’s full interview, along with other stars of the show trying to make sense of their characters.
