Creating Westworld’s Reality: Season 3
The cast and crew take you behind the scenes of Season 3.
Maeve jumps from the western to the war genre in “The Winter Line” when she ends up in Warworld, a theme park set in 1943-era Italy.
“‘Who am I’ is the theme for the episode. What is it that makes you who you are?”
"[Co-creator Jonah Nolan] was adamant about having a kick-ass car chase. I tried, in my conservative logistic sense, to pare it down, and every time I did, he went, nope, jack it back up."
This season sees Dolores trying to improve her version of Charlotte Hale, which involves forming a better relationship with her family.
“They barely had any scenes with each other. We very carefully kept them apart, knowing they were going to collide with one another, so when we got them together, the sparks would fly.”
“We wanted to turn the gaze this season from how an A.I. could be similar to humans to how humans are quite similar to A.I.”
