The HBO sci-fi series Westworld returns for its fourth season, with many characters reprising their roles or returning in other forms
Westworld season 4 takes place seven years after the end of the season 3 finale in 2060.
A new amusement park opens this season, which is modeled after the world of the American Mafia in the 1930s.
Who is Starring in Westworld Season 4?
Evan Rachel Wood as Christina
Wood originally played Dolores, but after the character’s death in season three, she returns as a new character, Christina – an aspiring writer who lives in a big city and argues with her boss about the kind of stories she should write.
Wood previously starred in the films Thirteen and Whatever Works, also played Sophie-Anne Leclerq in the vampire series True Blood, and voiced Iduna in Frozen II.
Thandiwe Newton as Maeve Millay
Maeve is a sentient hostess who fled Westworld and now wants to find her daughter.
Newton starred in Crash, winner of Best Picture in 2006, as well as action film Mission Impossible II and drama The Pursuit of Happynes.
Jeffrey Wright as Bernard Lowe
Lowe is a Westworld host created in the likeness of the park’s co-founder – he also escaped the park and entered The Sublime, a virtual world where hosts can live far away from humans.
Wright is known for playing Felix Leiter in several Bond films including No Time to Die, Lt. James Gordon in The Batman and The Watcher in the Marvel series What If…?
Tessa Thompson as Dolores Abernathy/Charlotte Hale
Thompson played Charlotte Hale and when that character was killed, she took over the role of Dolores Abernathy’s copy killing the original.
Thompson played Valkyrie in Thor Ragnarok and Avengers: Endgame, and also starred as Agent M in the 2019 Men in Black reboot.
Aaron Paul as Caleb Nichols
Caleb is a construction worker and human runaway (an unpredictable element) who refused to follow the supercomputer Rehoboam, and in season Caleb is an ally of Maeve.
Paul is known for playing Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad and its spin-off El Camino. He also voiced Todd Chavez in the adult animated comedy BoJack Horseman.
Angela Sarafyan as Clementine Pennyfeather
Pennyfeather is another Westworld host escapade – she previously worked as a prostitute in the park before breaking free.
Sarayfan’s other roles include Tia in Breaking Dawn: Part 2, Allison in Paranoia, and Joanna in the Ted Bundy biopic Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.
Ed Harris as William
William is the CEO of Delos Inc, the sinister company that owns Westworld park – in season three a host copy of William cut the human William’s throat, so it’s likely that Harris will reappear as the host version becomes.
Harris played Virgil Cole in the western Appaloosa and Major King in the World War II film Enemy at the Gates. He also played the mysterious Wilford in Snowpiercer.
James Marsden as Teddy Flood
Teddy was in love with Dolores during the show’s first season and joined The Sublime in season two — it’s not yet clear if Marsden will return in season four to reprise his role as Teddy or as a new character.
Mardsen played Cyclops in the X-Men franchise’s flour installments. He also played Stu Redman in Stephen King’s horror series The Stand and Tom in Sonic the Hedgehog.
Luke Hemsworth as Ashley Stubbs
Ashley Stubbs was Westworld’s head of security before the shutdown and is also a host himself – he’s been Bernard Lowe’s bodyguard since season three.
Luke is the oldest Hemsworth brother and has starred in several of his own projects – although one of his most famous roles was playing an actor who played Thor (Chris Hemsworth’s character) in a theatrical performance during Thor: Ragnarok.
Ariana DeBose as Maya
Maya is Christina’s roommate and one of her closest friends – she often pushes Christina out of her comfort zone.
DeBose was part of the ensemble cast of the American period musical Hamilton and has been with Schmigadoon! and Human Resources and also played Anita in Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story.
