It’s easy to argue that Westworld stands just head to head with its more famous counterpart, Game of Thrones, when it comes to all the faculties that make up a show. It’s got story; it’s got drive; it’s got the innovation and creativity beyond anything else that’s out there right now. Westworld also happens to have some of the most unique characters we’ve seen on television in a while, and it helps that the show has some pretty impressive manpower with actors such as Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, and Ed Harris. However, the show is more than just its principal characters. There are so many other non-starring roles that make this show even better than what it already is.
Here are the top 5 non-starring roles in Westworld that give the show just a little bit more.
Clementine Pennyfeather — Angela Sarafyan
While Angela received a starring introduction during the first season, her name was dropped for season 2. This can be due to the fact that the story of Clementine’s character isn’t as prominent in what’s going to happen in season 2. During season 1, Clementine was instrumental in the establishment of the ultimate purpose of Westworld, given that she was one of the most sought after prostitutes at the Mariposa saloon and brothel.
William — Jimmi Simpson
This is one of the most important characters in the show, and it’s actually surprising that Jimmi doesn’t receive star billing for this role. William, in this case, is actually more specifically noted as young William, who is later on revealed to us to also be The Man in Black, Ed Harris. The show plays this dynamic very well, as both young and old Williams are in the story simultaneously at some parts.
Armistice — Ingrid BolsÃ¸ Berdal
She’s one of the eldest hosts in Westworld, and some might even say that she probably pre-dates the park. Armistice had a generous role in the first season, and she received star billing then; but her name was dropped in the season 2 introductions. We last saw Armistice in a recollection in episode 2 of the second season, but she’s very much alive and active in Westworld. We suspect we’ll be seeing her again someday, and that she might play an important role in Dolores’ plight.
Felix Lutz — Leonardo Nam
Lutz works at the Livestock Management, and he’s a character that gets up close and personal to many hosts. Although he had a good amount of interaction with the hosts on screen, Felix’s role has always been on the sidelines. However, we’ve seen him get out of his comfort zone in season 2, and we suspect that he’ll be doing more than just lobotomizing hosts as he used to do.
Sylvester — Ptolemy Slocum
Sylvester has seen a good share of important screen time in season 1 with his close interactions with all the hosts that he encounters in the Body Shop. Sylvester is a technician that repairs all the damaged hosts. We’ve seen him suffer through quite a bit, and although we haven’t seen him yet in season 2, he’s very much alive and still working day in and day out.
