Tessa Thompson is returning as Valkyrie in Thor: Love and Thunder this summer, but that''s not her only major project going our way soon. She''ll also return as Charlotte Hale/''Halores'' in the fourth season of Westworld.
Charlotte has endured a lot since she was introduced, from losing her human body to being replaced by one of the many Dolores Abernathy copies. With ''Halores'', which uses Charlotte''s identity and sitting atop Delos''s board, we all know where her story will go.
Thompson spoke to media during a Westworld roundtable, saying, "Nothing specific about what her character is going through in Season 4, but also about her attitude in the season, and how it affects her goals.
"I''m concerned not to give away anything," she said (via i09) "but, as I understood it this season, the [Hales] strategy is sort of bigger than a desire for power. I believe that she has always been her fundamental nature in a way, both as Hale when we first met her, as a host."
The star says the next season "has to do with an idea about host-kind''s future," sharing "there''s a kind of righteous path in her mind that she is carving, not just for herself, but for all hosts." The star says: "And, naturally, the best leaders dont make anybody do anything. They invite people to do things, and people often want to because of their leadership and ideas."
"I dont know that Hale fully understands that; I believe she is attempting to make people see things her way, and has many degrees of success," Thompson said. "I think in her mind and in her heart, she is convinced that she is doing the right thing."
She revealed that she is very interested in her character and her appearance, also adding that: "And I am always amazed by people who do unsavory things for righteous reasons," she said. I think that is really fascinating. I think humans do that very much. So I was really interested in that in her."
Ed Harris, who plays the Man in Black, said that his character will get some major comeuppance in "various ways." Consider us interested!
Season 4 of Westworld begins on June 27. It is available on HBO in the United States, and on Sky Atlantic and NOW in the United Kingdom.
