Season 2 of Westworld is just days away - but with Season 3 already confirmed, there's good news for fans of the show and for one of its main stars, too.

Evan Rachel Wood, who plays Dolores on the HBO series, has confirmed that she will be receiving equal pay to her male co-stars, beginning with Season 3.

Wood told The Wrap: "I think I’m just now to the point where I’m getting paid the same as my male co-stars. I was just told that, you know, ‘Hey, you’re getting equal pay.’ And I almost got emotional. I was like, ‘I have never been paid the same as my male counterparts … never, never.’ I’m always fighting for that.

"Westworld, it’s like, I get it a little more. It’s like, ‘Well, you’re Anthony Hopkins or Ed Harris.’ But I think now we’re all doing equal amounts of work and really hard work.”

HBO boss Casey Bloys admitted earlier this month that as a 'direct result' of the Time's Up movement, they had examined the gender-based pay disparity on their major shows and had made amends for their female stars, going forward.


“There is a lot of trying to make things equal and trying to make things fair,” Wood said. “This is the first time that somebody made a point of being like, ‘Hey you’re getting this. And you deserve it.’ And that was nice."
