Shooting On ‘Westworld’ S2 Suspended After Actor Suffers Medical Emergency

Production on HBO‘s Westworld has halted after an actor suffered an injury, according to a statement provided to Deadline.

It is unknown which actor was involved, but HBO confirmed that they are in a “recurring role” and that the injury happened off the set. The statement reads as follows:

Due to a medical emergency involving a performer in a recurring role on season 2 of Westworld, filming on one of the two units has been temporarily suspended. The cast member was not on set when this occurred, and out of respect for the performer’s privacy, we have no additional details to share, other than that everyone at Westworld sincerely hopes for a quick recovery.

Over at TMZ, who as well know run the Hollywood equivalent of a Cold War era intelligence agency, they’re saying that the cast member – whoever it is – fell and hit their head at home, and that the injury is “serious”.

Season 2 of the wildly popular sci-fi show was scheduled for the first half of next year, though it s unclear how this will affect the release date, if at all.

We’ll keep you posted.
