We’ll be seeing a lot more of Peter Abernathy

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).

We first meet Abernathy in the premiere episode of the series. He stumbles upon a photo of an unknown woman, who we later learn is William’s (Jimmi Simpson) fiancée. This discovery causes him to ‘breach’, and ultimately leads to his decommissioning and banishment to host storage.

Abernathy then reappears in episode 8, ‘Trace Decay’, as Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson) asks Lee Sizemore (Simon Quarterman) to create a narrative for the host believable enough to get him to exit the park without arising any suspicions. But before doing so, they upload into him the host code taken from the recently-perished Theresa (Sidse Babett Knudsen).

Herthum joins Talulah Riley as the second actor upped to series regular for the upcoming season.

How do you think Abernathy’s story will unfold given his increased role in the next season? Let us know!

  1. He was incredible as Peter Abernathy, so I am beyond excited that he will be back as a series regular! I’m really curious about how his story will unfold. Sizemore said that he was able to give him a “semblance of a personality,” so it should be interesting to see what that means.

  2. Wow. First Talulah Riley and now him. Abernathy was amazing in his few scenes, particularly when he went on a crazy rant against Ford and Bernard (who he thought was Arnold.) They really couldn’t be making better choices regarding the focus of next season. As I said previously, if only they also confirmed Elsie would have a much larger role, I’d be completely satisfied… But they won’t, of course. Her fate was left as a cliffhanger, after all.

  3. Hell yeah, I love this dude. I was bummed when it seemed like he wouldn’t be in the show much anymore, with his version of Daddy Abernathy being put out to pasture early on, but the finale changed things. So this is a treat!
