Evan Rachel Wood Confirms She 'Just Now' Getting Equal Pay on 'Westworld'

Maeve gains true consciousness- or does she

I was like, 'I have never been paid the same as my male counterparts.

Another thing has changed off screen in season three: the pay. "All I can say is yes, there's going to be something, we'll give you something", Wood, 30, told Us at the Hollywood premiere of Westworld season 2 on Monday, April 16. Her male costars Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris are Oscar-nominated so she assumed that was why there was a pay gap.

"I found out. I'm always fighting for that". Yeah, yeah, I know our Game of Thrones recap is only about 12 minutes, but Westworld is a lot more confusing ok!

Evan Rachel Wood is arguably the face of "Westworld".

"I think now we're all doing equal amounts of work and really hard work", Wood shared, noting she's been making "pretty much the same amount of money on things for years". While in her case it sounds like Wood's pay bump was more of a welcome surprise than the result of a drawn-out fight, her willingness to open up about the disparity and how she felt when it was corrected adds and another important voice to an ongoing conversation.

"I'm in like dire straits. I'm very lucky. It's more about if you're getting paid fairly, or the same, or if you're getting paid less simply because you're a woman, that's not fair".

As far as Wood's equal pay is concerned, she's entirely deserving of it and this shouldn't be misconstrued with behind-the-scenes TV politics forcing HBO's hand to pay her a fair and equal rate. "This is the first time that somebody made a point of being like, 'Hey you're getting this". She's just a darn good actress and without her presence on Westworld, it wouldn't have the same effect on viewers.

Westworld returns for its second season Sunday on HBO. IndieWire has reached out to HBO for comment.
