It seems like Delos is really shoring up its staff this year!
With production on Westworld Season 2 already underway, the show has added even more star-power to its already stellar cast.
Skarsgard is easily the biggest of the three additions. The actor has portrayed the fan-favorite character of Floki on Vikings. Skarsgard is set to play a character named Karl Strand, who is described as "a white-collar guy comfortable in the field."
Fares Fares was recently seen in last year's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but he made a name for himself in the TV world for his role in Tyrant on FX. Fares has been cast as a character named Antoine Costa, "a tech expert with objective perspective."
Finally, Betty Gabriel has been added as a recurring character named Maling, "who is trying to restore order on the ground." Many will recognize Gabriel for her role as Georgina, the maid-turned-grandma in Get Out.0comments
By the descriptions given for these new characters, it sounds like all of them will be human, and all of them will be working with Delos to try and stop the Host uprising.
Westworld is set to return for its second season on HBO next spring.
