    She killed it in True Blood as a vampire queen. I'm glad HBO kept her for Westworld! Her acting is incredible.

    Huge talent. Great actor. So cool on top of it. Very photogenic as well. Any photographer would love to have her as a model because she could cover so many bases.

    Something about her tells me that she got an emotional dark side to her.

  • Authentically Nobody

    Beautiful face. Brilliant mind. I'm fascinated with this woman.

    Damn! She is so pretty . Wow and seems so down to earth

  • Dolgstrang Gumblry

    I love how David talks really fast and has no face. As well as his disregard for Evan's story of why she was running from the role of a hero. He is such a good interviewer

      That's because it sort of was at that time.

    Westworld has the highest caliber of acting by the main cast of any TV show ever IMO! The actors are going through crazy levels of acting olympics on the fly. Navigating such a huge range of emotions and switching characters/accents/movements all within a single take while being buck-ass-nekid...jaw dropping. Evan and Thandie should've won the emmys -___-

      I disagree, but you're not crazy. Dolores is a great character. ERW is a better actress.

    Ah man, an hour long interview with a successful actress and you open by asking about her kid, the feminists will be all over this one!

      Cockoff Gewgle not sure why you brought "feminist" into this , Evan is a feminist herself

      It doesn't sound like anything to me.

    Really interesting interview and what a show Westworld is - loved the first season. As a side note: I hate that people associate sci-fi with mindless action these days - not their fault, there's barely any well made example in the movies out there - where *real* sci-fi always is commentary and exploration.

    I don't know why but her voice reminds me of Kristen Stewart's. She seems to really love what she does, really good actress imo.

      Evan Rachel Wood is a 1000 times much better than K-Stew when it comes to talent, humility, intelligence.
