Westworld star James Marsden to visit Australia

Leading Hollywood actor and star of HBO’s smash-hit series Westworld, James Marsden, will visit Sydney from April 30 to May 1 to promote the launch of the highly-anticipated second season of Westworld on Foxtel.

The internationally-renowned actor has enjoyed a hugely successful career spanning over 25 years, with credits including The Notebook, Superman Returns, Hairspray, Enchanted, 27 Dresses, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, The Best of Me, The Butler, Bachelorette and X-Men, where he played the character of Cyclops across the entire X-Men franchise.

Marsden’s latest role sees him play lead character and mysterious android host Teddy in the Emmy-nomated television series Westworld – a handsome transient with a quick draw and a dark past, who longs for a simpler life. He joins an exceptional cast including Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris and Thandie Newton.

Set in the not-too-distant future, Westworld is a futuristic adventure park modelled after America’s Wild West and populated by human-like android hosts. Paying guests immerse themselves in the Westworld universe, where every detail and scenario have been planned, scripted and executed by a team of brilliant scientists and programmers working in close proximity to the park. However, a group of the android hosts soon begin to deviate from their programmers’ carefully planned scripts, in a disturbing pattern of abnormal behaviour.
