One of the more memorable minor characters from Westworld‘s first season was the delightfully wicked host Rebus, played by Steven Ogg.

Counting down the days to the season two premiere and in desperate need of a Westworld fix? Boy, does HBO have a vacation for you! Yesterday, the network announced plans for a “Live Without Limits” weekend beginning March 9, 2018 at the South by Southwest Conference and Festivals in Austin, Texas.
