Evan ‘so happy’ with the love for Dolores

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Evan Rachel Wood (be­low) plays a de­ranged hu­manoid named Dolores in the sci-fi se­ries West­world, and while the first sea­son saw Dolores leave a trail of bod­ies in her wake, the up­com­ing sea­son will be even cra­zier.

Asked about how she feels that her char­ac­ter is get­ting so much love from view­ers, the ac­tor says, “It made me so happy. That char­ac­ter went through so much in the first sea­son, so much pain and so many hor­ri­ble re­al­i­sa­tions about the world and her­self. The whole time, peo­ple were root­ing for her to break free and take con­trol. To fi­nally have that im­age of her with this di­shev­elled blue dress and bul­lets across her chest and her hair blow­ing in the wind, free and wild, and tak­ing con­trol of her life again. Yes, she’s gun­ning down peo­ple. But in her de­fence, she has been pushed a lit­tle too far... Sym­bol­i­cally, it rep­re­sents so much.”

Wood also com­ments on her self-pro­claimed ob­ses­sion with find­ing out what will hap­pen next in the se­ries. “I hon­estly don’t know what drives it. Be­cause they’re such good sto­ry­tellers... you get sucked in,” she says.
