"I think I'm just now to the point where I'm getting paid the same as my male co-stars", Wood said. "I was just told that, you know, 'Hey you're, you're getting equal pay.' And I nearly got emotional".

Westworld season 2 premieres on April 22, 2018 on HBO in the USA and a day later on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in the United Kingdom. The actress' co-stars include Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, and Jeffrey Wright.

Trailers for the show's second season reveal that Wood's presence as one of the series' clear stars is not likely to go away anytime soon, and while she acknowledged that some of her co-stars may have been on a different level than she was when the show began, that's clearly not the case now.

"I found out. I'm always fighting for that". The Westworld star spoke with Us Weekly about what's coming up for her character, including Dolores' sexuality.

"I'm in like dire straits. I'm very lucky. It's more about if you're getting paid fairly, or the same, or if you're getting paid less simply because you're a woman, that's not fair", Evan said.

As far as Wood's equal pay is concerned, she's entirely deserving of it and this shouldn't be misconstrued with behind-the-scenes TV politics forcing HBO's hand to pay her a fair and equal rate. I don't know, there is a lot of stuff.

To that end, we've made a recap of the entire first season which should get you well and truly caught up on everything important before the season 2 premiere. "And you deserve it.' And that was nice".

Wood did not elaborate on just how wide the Westworld pay gap was before she was told she would receive equal pay, or on where the show's other female stars now stand in terms of salary. According to The Wrap, HBO declined to comment on Wood's remarks.

Westworld season 2 is very almost here, which means it'll soon be time to delve back into the world of the Hosts, DELOS, and questionable ethics!
