Crayen interviewComments Off on Westworld: A study on human beings
SINGAPORE — He has successfully crossed over from movies to TV and back. As an actor, who is on the lookout for the next acting frontier to discover, James Marsden said that unpredictability is an interesting quality of an onscreen character. It’s safe to say that playing Teddy Flood, a handsome gunslinger host — a robot/android — on HBO’s drama series Westworld, sit well with James.
“You always wanna play characters that there’s more going on to them than just what’s on the surface, you know,” he shared with Asian writers during his recent visit in the city to promote Westworld’s season finale. “You don’t really know what they’re gonna do in any circumstance, a lot of different things that drive them, different motives. So I think Teddy is very similar in that way. I think he sees himself having a peaceful life with Dolores someday but there’s this past he has to come to terms with.” By the way, Dolores, played by Evan Rachel Wood, is Teddy’s object of affection, who learned that her reality was a lie. Also in the cast were Anthony Hopkins as Dr. Robert Ford, founder and chief programmer of Westworld, and Ed Harris, the Man in Black.
This type of roles excites James to develop from ground up. With Westworld, the cast members didn’t have a full knowledge on the 10 episodes. None of them knew where the story was heading, James related. His character had gone from “good guy that turned completely upside down and he can be a savage killer if he needs to be,” he said. The actor found working on Westworld satisfying and playing Teddy’s different sides exciting.

Science-fiction series Westworld’s season one finale airs today. Its maker, HBO, has announced a second season, but actor James Marsden is keeping his lips sealed over whether his character, the synthetic human Teddy Flood, is coming back.
He remains reticent even when it is pointed out that robots, called “hosts” in the show, are immortal.
After “death” – often at the hands of human clients releasing forbidden urges – the hosts are repaired, memory-wiped and returned to service in a process called a “reset”.

As Game of Thrones take a back seat before its final season, HBO’s newest sci-fi series, Westworld takes over television screens with its dark, twisted look into the dawn of artificial intelligence in a virtual world where visitors are free to do whatever they desire – no matter how noble or depraved. The show has proven to be a huge hit, taking over media and dinner tables with fervid discussions. Right before the show hits its feverish peak known as the season finale on 5 December 2016 on HBO, we sat down with one of the main actors, James Marsden* for to know more about his own Westworld journey.
Westworld is based off Westworld the film, from 1973, by Michael Chricton. Have you watched the film?
James: I watched the original, it was great. Yul Brynner was great, and one of the scariest villains in cinematic history. He was really the original terminator if you think about it.

Make no mistake, the best way to experience Singapore seems to be through the stomach and James Marsden was all ready for this encounter.
It has become a cliche to ask visiting celebs matters pertaining to cuisine and Marsden appeared to be no stranger to the question. After all, it was his first time ever to this part of the world and he certainly made the most of his trip here having been sighted all a few local food joints. He even readily offered that he was having Laksa after the day’s interviews. Clearly HBO Singapore is taking good care of the man!
Teddy Flood, as we better know him from Westworld, was in Singapore just one week before the first season finale. And while he seemed to have a packed schedule having been to a morning talk show prior to the interview session, he seemed all upbeat as I walked into the room. Having only 25 minutes for a roundtable interview, the questions came fast and furious. It was interesting to see how Marsden tried his very best to hold back on any possible spoilers and deflect off any questions that might allude to his return in season two.

SINGAPORE — By now, most television buffs would have caught Westworld, HBO’s futuristic blockbuster about an amusement park set in the Wild West, where rich guests can have their way with their android “hosts”.
But even as audiences prepare for the series’ highly-anticipated season finale on Monday (Dec 5 at 10am Singapore time), actor James Marsden, who plays a gun-slinging host on the show, has been having a considerably more relaxing time than his character on Westworld.

Voted one of the handsomest men alive, James Marsden can make a boring grey couch look good. He sits on one across from us, looking eager and sprightly for a Wednesday morning.
After completing his run as Cyclops, aka Scott Summers, in the X-Men trilogy, Marsden is back to electrify fans with his boyish charm. He returns as the handsome Teddy Flood, a cowboy with a quick draw, in HBO’s latest series, “Westworld”.

Westworld star James Marsden has only ever met well-known actress Anna Kendrick briefly, whom he described as a “delightful woman with a great sense of humour”.
But he made enough of an impression for her to tell a Buzzfeed reader looking for self-improvement tips, “You should imagine that you have the spirit of Oprah, and the face of James Marsden, and just project that in your daily life.”
Asked what he makes of this advice, the 43-year-old American laughed and told Yahoo Singapore wryly, “I don’t know about the James Marsden part, but I agree with the Oprah part.”
Crayen interviewComments Off on ‘I have hope’: James Marsden on Westworld character’s love life
SINGAPORE: Will James Marsden get the girl this time?
Judging from his on-screen track record, chances may be quite slim. The star’s on-screen love life has been less than stellar, especially in his roles in The Notebook and The Best of Me.
But the actor is hopeful his character Teddy Flood, in science fiction thriller series Westworld, will buck that trend.
“There are a lot of people out there theorising about where this is going, what it all means and who’s a robot and who’s not. I find that the show is most satisfying when you just let it all unfold in its organic time. That said, I have hope that they will be together, I love the emotional connection that they have,” he said of Teddy’s relationship with Dolores, played by Evan Rachel Wood.

“Westworld” actor James Marsden made an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where he dished on his crush on Helen Mirren.
James gushed, “I just love her. I do. I’ve had a massive crush on her for years. [I] didn’t meet her backstage.”
James went on to tell his story about that the time he stalked her at the airport. “I’m glad I’m waiting to be on national television to admit this. But I was on a flight with her once to Rome. And when I got off the flight, I followed her to baggage claim and in a very voyeuristic, creepy way I took a photo of her while she was walking. Very creepy! I was avoiding seeing her backstage because I didn’t want her to know I was stalking her in Rome in an international airport.” Watch!
