WESTWORLD could feature even more body-swapping this series, the show’s stars have hinted.
The popular HBO sci-fi cowboy drama returns to our screens for a third season on Monday, with little revealed about what fans can expect.
The end of the second series saw the cores – AKA brains – of a number of hosts smuggled out of the Wild West-themed amusement park and into the “real world”.
They included lead character Delores Abernathy, after Head of the Westworld Programming Division Bernard Lowe created a host version of Westworld executive Charlotte Hale with Dolores' consciousness in it.
Dolores-as-Charlotte then killed the real Charlotte, and finally escaped Westworld by pretending to be her.
Speaking ahead of series 3 both Tessa Thompson, who plays Charlotte, and Evan Rachel Wood (Delores), remained tight-lipped when asked what it was like to act like each other.
But the pair teased that there may be more actors playing the characters of others in the upcoming episodes.
"I don't know," Thompson said with a grin, when asked if her character was actually also Dolores.
"When prompted by the interviewer if she was hiding something, Wood said with a laugh: "We're not allowed to blink.”
Thompson added: "Do you remember? This is my first time being a Host-Host, like I did it a little last season, but I had to ask you the rules I was like 'What about blinking? Do you blink?' and you're like, 'Yeah, you can blink.' I had so many questions."
And Wood chimed in: "I always blink on people's lines because I know they won't be on my face.
"I've done it for at least five years now, so I've developed some tricks."
Ahead of the new series, Westworld fans are already licking their lips in anticipation at what they might see.
While show bosses are giving little away, series co-creator Lisa Joy has said the status of Thompson's character and the fallout from the second season will be a major factor this time around.
She said: "We’re looking at the aftermath of the massacre in the park. After all they went through to get out of the park, Dolores finally got what she wanted, so we wanted to see how she interacts with the world and what her plan is. That’s a part of the story we were excited to tell."
Westworld returns for series 3 on Sky Atlantic on Monday at 9pm.
