Westworld Season 2 is upon us, and you know what that means: Get ready to spot a ton of new faces, human and android alike? Who's good? Who's bad? And who can be trusted? We've got the scoop on all the new characters.
Sanada has a major recurring role as Musashi, who will be introduced as part of Westworld's expansion into other worlds - namely, the Japanese samurai-themed one, Shogun World.
Karl Strand is not the type of guy you want to mess around with. A former military man, he's now head of security/operations at Westworld and has his hands full with the biggest mass casualty event to happen in any Delos park. He's running the initiative to clean things up and restore order to the park. You may know Skarsgard (brother of Alexander) from his role as Floki on Vikings!
Grace is a frequent visitor to Westworld who's unprepared for the chaos that awaits her when she returns this time around. She also has a close connection to someone we met in Season 1.
Antoine is a tech expert who works with Karl Strand. If you need a host's skull cracked open to retrieve their memories to find out what happened, he's your guy. Objective and technical, he may be out of his league with the mess that's been made in Westworld, but his knowledge of the park's technology is invaluable.
A recurring character, Major Craddock is a military officer who strikes a commanding presence in the fantasy theme park.
James Delos is the founder of Delos Inc., the company that created Westworld and its adjoining parks. He's also the father of Logan and Juliet, the woman William was betrothed to in Season 1. A stern businessman, James doesn't want to throw his money into any project without a sure return of investment. To be honest, he's kind of a real S.O.B. Mullan has appeared in the Harry Potter movies as Yaxley, as well as on Top of the Lake and Ozark.
Nicholas is a visitor to Westworld, described as "a charming and resourceful man who finds himself in uncharted territory."
We still don't know a whole lot about Akecheta except that he's a member of the Ghost Nation and has been spotted in trailers in both full Native American regalia and in a business suit. Based on that description, we can guess he's a host. But why is he in a suit? You may remember McClarnon from his fantastic turn as a silent assassin on Fargo.
Maling is one of Karl's top soldiers and a total badass. Aggressive and frightening, she seems like she's a "shoot first, ask questions later" type of person. In other words, she'll fit right in in Westworld.
Oscar nominee Kikuchi (Babel) plays a geisha named Akane, presumably in the Shogun World we'll be exploring in Season 2.
Sakura is also a geisha, whose role will seem familiar to anyone who watched Season 1.
