And it wasn’t until Wood took on the role of Dolores Abernathy in the thriller about the future Westworld that she was awakened to what happened years ago, as the captive robot’s relationship with the Heartless Man in Black is said to reflect her own experience with the shocker.
Earlier this year, Wood adopted the name Manson, real name Brian Warner, an abuser she has long referred to as her advocate for the Phoenix Act and other laws to protect survivors of domestic violence.

(Manson has denied the charges against him.)
During filming Piercing gently, Warner’s character Marilyn Manson is still viewed as a performance piece to the general public, but for one HBO executive producer, it’s been written on the wall and caused concern for Wood, according to Wood. new book Tinderbox: HBO’s ruthless pursuit of new frontiers, out November 23.
“I would believe everything Evan said about Marilyn Manson, because we were there,” said Emmy-winning producer Ilene Landress, outsider. Piercing gently Work on Sopranos and Girls, is quoted as saying.
“He visited once, and I remember the bottle of vodka flying out of the trailer. She will come to work in bad condition. She would come to work like the train had passed her… Pretty much every morning if I saw Evan Rachel Wood, the first question would be, ‘Where is the doctor?’ She was in a difficult place. ”
However, Landress added, what goes on in Wood’s personal life “never influenced her performance” on the show. “She would fall asleep in the makeup chair, pop out of the makeup chair and do her thing.”
Wood first started dating Manson when she was 19 years old in 2007, met the singer at the legendary Chateau Marmont while he was still married to Dita Von Teese, according to Everyone.
When the couple briefly split in 2009, Manson bragged that he had cut his own throat 158 times – as many times as he had tried to call her. He also said his disturbing song “I Want to Kill You Like They Do in The Movies” is about Wood, telling Turn, “I have fantasies every day of smashing her skull with a sledgehammer.”

But gradually, Dolores began to wake up, realizing that the peaceful life around him was just an illusion. In fact, she endures the horror day after day, all in the name of someone else’s sick game.
“Everyone is going through some kind of personal trauma or severe tribulation at the time.”
Because the show’s first season was written by Johnathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, Westworld creators and husband and wife, while the film was being shot, Wood explained to Miller that she didn’t have a script in advance, so she had to learn about Dolores and her story in real time.
“That performance changed my life,” Wood told Miller. “I realized that what my character went through was a reflection of what I went through. So, the fact that Dolores awakens and realizes who she is, what her place is in the world, and at the same time realizes that the person she loves is her killer, has awakened a lot of things inside. I. “
The starting point for Dolores’ character is when she realizes that the elegant and caring William is also the Man in Black (played by Ed Harris). Over the years, the once sweet William became her tormentor, taunting her, beating her, and even killing her love, Teddy.
“Whenever my character had a scene with the Man in Black, or she had a moment of awareness, I went through the same thing on a personal level,” recalls Wood. “At the end of the first season, I feel like I’ve been given this gift of spirit and strength, throughout the making of the first season.”
“It was the catalyst for me to realize that I had been abused and that I needed treatment for the trauma,” she added. “That I need to really process all this and stop running away from it, stop deleting it.”
