Prodigal Son alum Aurora Perrineau is joining the new season of HBO’s Westworld.
Perrineau has a key recurring role in the upcoming fourth season but details on her character are being kept under wraps. She will star in at least five episodes.
Season 3 of Westworld, which aired between March and May of last year, picked up three months after Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) escaped Westworld with processing cores that included Bernard (Jeffrey Wright). Living in 2058 Los Angeles, Dolores discovered how poorly the lower classes (artificial beings included) were treated in the real world, while Maeve (Thandiwe Newton) found herself inside the Delos park’s Fascist Italy sector during World War II.
Tessa Thompson, Ed Harris, and Vincent Cassell also star in the series.
Westworld is based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie of the same name. Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy created the sci-fi show that is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin.
Nolan and Joy executive produce with Denise Thé, J.J. Abrams, Athena Wickham, Richard J. Lewis and Ben Stephenson. Kilter Films and Bad Robot Productions produce Westworld in association with Warner Bros Television.
Perrineau’s credits include Prodigal Son and Jem and the Holograms. She also starred in Equals, Passengers, Truth or Dare, When They See Us, and Into the Dark.
