“Westworld” Star Thandie Newton for Porter Magazine

Posted on March 16, 2020

“Westworld” star Thandie Newton covers the latest issue of Porter magazine photographed by Liz Collins and styled by Cathy Kasterine.






On the new season of “Westworld”: “It’s a natural evolution from where we were,” she says animatedly. “It just gets richer and richer because the writers have known what they’re going to do for five seasons. I don’t know what happens from episode to episode. This season was such a gift for everybody. I’m so admiring of everyone involved. We have such earnest respect for each other. We’ve grown as people.”

On her role as Maeve in “Westworld”: “It’s the best role. The perspective she has [as a robot] and what that, as an audience, allows us to consider… What makes her strong are the things she’s copied or learnt from a human being. She’s cherry-picked the things she wants to keep. It’s really great this season. We have such good directors. We have eight episodes and five are directed by women. I’ve worked with so many women over the past 12 months.”

On fashion: “I love dressing up. I love a beautiful gown because it’s a piece of art. I love color.”

On being optimistic: “We’re seeing beautiful things happen in the world that are completely counter to the shi**y things. People are so tender. All the negative sides of being terrified… on the flip side, look at our creativity, our courage. We have to keep looking at those things. Because a lot of the time, it’s where we choose to look.”
