Evan Rachel Woodhas joined the cast of a new HBO series Westworld, which is based on Michael Crichton‘s 1973 film of the same name. The Hollywood Reporter says “the drama is billed as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.” Evan will play “Dolores Abernathy, the quintessential farm girl of the frontier West — who is about to discover that her entire idyllic existence is an elaborately constructed lie.” The show will also star Anthony Hopkins, so it sounds great already.
The first knowledge I had of a grown lesbian was when I was Penny’s age, in high school. There was this woman, she was very pale, with dark hair, and beautifully defined features. She was the student teacher for PE. I didn’t have to take PE because I was in the band. But I was desperate to find a way to talk to this woman because I had such a crush on her. She was the only gay person I’d ever met back then in Paris, Tennessee. I decided I was going to go to the National Speech Tournament. I’d won for my state in dramatic interpretation. I chose original oratory. I’d heard the PE teacher was active in her college’s chapter of the National Organization for Women. So I went to her and said, “I’ve chosen this topic. Is there any material that you can bring me?” And she did. It turned out that she was this radical lesbian feminist separatist like Cherise’s character in the play. The first thing she brought me was Sisterhood Is Powerful with this huge fist on the cover. All of this stuff—that’s exactly what Cherise is saying to me every night on stage as Hanna, and it just takes me right back. My oration, by the way, was called “Sex Role Stereotyping: Traditional Tommy-Rot.” Don’t ask me where that came from. But I won second in the nation with it and the only reason why was that I had a passion for that college student.
