Bret Eric Porter Interview: A Guest Cast From Westworld Season 1

Fellow Westworld fansite, Westworld Watchers got a guest cast from season 1 on-board for an interview. Bret Eric Porter was the Union Scout from episode 6, ‘The Adversary.’ In case you don’t remember him, see the clip below and then check out the most interesting bits from the interview.

Porter said he had no idea what the show was about when he was cast for the role. He, of course, didn’t know what was going on (a sentiment shared by the main casts of the show) therefore, he had to “invent” the “how’s and why’s” for “emotional fuel to push the scene.”

Porter shared the scene with Ed Harris (Man in Black) and James Marsden (Teddy Flood) so naturally, he shared his experience of working with them. Speaking of Harris, Porter said, “Ed is so easy with himself and playful. I found that refreshing.”

Calling Harris a “great physical actor,” Porter recalled the actor’s stunt double saying, “Ed can do his own stunts; he doesn’t even need me but I think he humors me.”

As for Marsden, Porter said he was a “cool cucumber,” “very focused,” and “very generous actor.”
