Evan ‘so happy’ with the love for Dolores
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.
