[USA], August 8 (ANI): Evan Rachel Wood plays a deranged host named Dolores in HBO sci-fi series 'Westworld' and while the first season saw Dolores leave a trail of bodies in her wake, the upcoming season will be even crazier for her character.

When asked about how she feels that her character is getting so much love from the people, the actress could not help but say that she feels really happy that people has given so much love to my character, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

She said, "It made me so happy. That character went through so much in the first season, so much pain and so many horrible realizations about the world and herself. The whole time, people were rooting for her to break free and take control.

To finally have that image of her with this disheveled blue dress and bullets across her chest and her hair blowing in the wind, free and wild, and taking control of her life again. Yes, she's gunning down people."

Adding, "But in her defense, she has been pushed a little too far. But I think symbolically, it represents so much. It's something we were longing to see."

The actress also commented on her self-proclaimed obsession with finding out what will happen next in the series.

"Westworld was kind of all of my favorite nerd things put together. It was Western sci-fi and psychology and spirituality and mythology. Just because I'm an ├╝ber nerd, and because I knew we weren't getting all of the information. I was trying to figure it out, but I also knew it was going to be something incredible. It's not even that I had a need to know," shared Wood.

Continuing, "I honestly don't know what drives it. Because they're such good storytellers, you kind of can't help it. You get sucked in."

'Westworld' returns with second season in 2018. (ANI)
