Behind the well-known credits of the regulars of local creations, which are the best HBO series ?


With high expectations around a potential season 5, Westworld is one of HBO’s great success stories of recent years. Since 2016, the futuristic theme park and its Wild West-worthy characters have populated a narrative loop at the beginning of the series, before several technological problems put a damper on the drift of this basic premise. Westworld is thus straddling the line between science fiction, thriller and western, always with a highly dramatic approach.

A synopsis of high quality that also requires great actors. An idea highlighted by the presence, in particular, of Jeffrey Wright. Present in many successful scenarios in recent years, the American actor was a member of the cast of Casino Royale, one of the best poker movies or for sure, the best James Bond showing so much action on the gaming table. After this 2006 movie, Wright saw his popularity explode and it is undoubtedly something that allowed him to play the character of Bernard Lowe in this HBO series.
