The last we saw of Ashley Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth), the Head of Security of Westworld was in was in episode 9, ‘The Well-Tempered Clavier’. He seems to have been abducted by a group of Ghost Nation Hosts. The question we fans have been asking since is whether he is alive or dead! Fortunately for us, Luke Hemsworth has dished out Stubbs’ condition in Westworld season 2.
It’s not that the 36-year-old actor said Stubbs is alive but definitely pointed out that his character in Westworld is in good shape. Huff Post asked Hemsworth, “Is Stubbs OK?” to which the actor replied:
“Physically? He’s well. He’s doing all right. Just taking a sabbatical.”
The answer sounds so confident that we are forced to think that the actor knows he’s coming back for Westworld season 2. yet he insists he doesn’t really know what’ll happen in the upcoming season. “Its strength is its secrecy,” Hemsworth said, adding “A, I wouldn’t tell you if I did know. B, I literally don’t know.”
It isn’t too difficult to believe him because Westworld creators are known for being tight-lipped with the actors and giving them just enough information to pull off their characters while shooting.
As it happens in all chats surrounding Westworld, Hemsworth was asked what he thought about some of the Westworld season 2 theories. Speaking of the possible theory that Elsie is alive and Stubbs will end up saving her life, the Westworld actor said he likes the idea of Stubbs’ “run through the park” in a western gear trying to rescue Elsie.
Of course, he has no idea about what is going to happen with Elsie but he expects thinks are going to get complicated in Westworld’s upcoming season.
Also, Luke Hemsworth thinks Westworld is located on another planet colonized by humans.
What is your theory on what might have happened to Elsie and Stubbs?
