Thandie Newton Boards HBO’s ‘Westworld’
Rogue‘s Thandie Newton is putting down roots in Westworld, HBO’s sci-fi drama pilot from exec producers J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub and Bryan Burk and writers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, TVLine has learned.
She will play Maeve Millay, a beautiful and razor-sharp madame whose seen-it-all-before worldview is about to be truly challenged.
Coincidentally, Newton’s casting comes just days after DirecTV renewed Rogue for two more seasons. If Westworld gets ordered to series, the actress will (somehow) juggle both shows.
