Westworld star Thandie Newton is getting creative during the COVID-19 lockdown, by taking to her car to record lines for the show.

The British actress, 47, has played artificially intelligent host, Maeve Millay, since season one of the hit HBO show, which is set in a futuristic theme park. The program is currently airing its third season in the U.S., but some episodes weren’t finished prior to the world going into lockdown due to the coronavirus, meaning Thandie and her co-stars have had to come up with unique ways of providing the necessary ADR (additional dialogue recording) for the series.

Consequently, Thandie shared a clip of herself recording in her car on her Instagram page on Easter Sunday (April 12, 2020), writing alongside the video: “Lockdown. Been having to create a DIY sound studio (in the car, in the garage, recording into my i phone while hooked up to LA on my laptop) to do ADR (additional dialogue recording) for @westworldhbo.

 

“We’re doing everything we can during Covid19 to bring the show to you. Without these trans-global, tenacious cheats, the full season couldn’t get finished (while you watch each episode the future ones are still being completed).”

She added: “Huge thanks to our incredible post-production team for making magic happen. Episode 5 tonight. Gonna slay. Xxxx T.”

Season three of Westworld, also starring Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, and Tessa Thompson, airs Sundays on HBO.
