The highly anticipated fourth season of Westworld is nearly upon us, and Tessa Thompson has teased what to expect from her character Charlotte Hale/ ‘Halores’. 

It’s fair to say that things have not been plain sailing for Charlotte since she made her debut on the show, from losing her human body to getting replaced by one of the copies of Dolores Abernathy. When we left her in season three, Halores was using Charlotte’s identity and sitting on top of the board of Delos. 

Speaking at a roundtable for Westworld, Thompson was guarded about giving too much away about what is next for Charlotte, but she did reveal we can expect a change (via i09).

She said: “I’m anxious not to give anything away but I think, as I understood it this season, [Hale’s] plan is sort of bigger than just a desire for power. I think that’s always been her fundamental nature in a way, both as Hales when we first met her, and as a host.”

 She also added that the upcoming season will play with “what should be the future of host-kind” and said: “There’s a sort of righteous path in her mind that she’s carving, not just for herself, but for all hosts.”

She continued: “And, of course, I think the best leaders don’t make anybody do anything. They invite people to do things, and people typically want to because of the strength of their leadership and ideas."

Thompson also revealed that she’s always been interested in how her character has evolved and her behaviour. 

She explained: “I’m always fascinated by people who do unsavory things for righteous reasons- I think that is really fascinating. I think humans do that a lot. So I was really interested in that in her.”

Westworld season 4 premieres on June 27. It airs on HBO in the US, and on Sky Atlantic and NOW in the UK.
