Some unfortunate news coming out of the Westworld camp today. According to Deadline, one of the show’s two filming units has temporarily suspended production after a season 2 recurring actor suffered an unspecified off-set injury. Neither the actor nor the injury are known at this time, but HBO has released the following statement:
“Due to a medical emergency involving a performer in a recurring role on season 2 of Westworld, filming on one of the two units has been temporarily suspended. The cast member was not on set when this occurred, and out of respect for the performer’s privacy, we have no additional details to share, other than that everyone at Westworld sincerely hopes for a quick recovery.”
It’s not known yet how this incident may affect the show’s remaining shoot schedule, which is currently slated to run through the rest of this year.
