‘Westworld’ Season 2 Adds Julia Jones, Tao Okamoto and Kiki Sukezane
Westworld might be returning later this month, but five new recurring characters have just been announced. Aside from their names, not many details have been revealed yet, so fans of the HBO hit will have to wait.
Okamoto, who appeared as Lex Luthor’s personal assistant Mercy Graves in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, will be playing a character named Hanaryo. Japanese actress Kiki Sukezane (Netflix’s Lost in Space) is playing Sakura, and Julia Jones (who plays Leah in the Twilight movies) has been cast as a character called Kohana. The show’s second season will introduce its feudal Japan-themed park Shogun World, but it’s still unclear whether Okamoto and Sukezane have any involvement with it.
Zahn McClarnon has also been cast in an mystery role, and he even made a brief appearance in the trailer. His character is named Akecheta, and fans believe he is a member of the Ghost Nation tribe that is heavily featured in the first season.
Westworld returns April 22nd on HBO.Watch the trailer for season 2 below:
