Wichapi was the matriarch of the village in “Kiksuya.” It was a small part, but quite essential to Akecheta’s journey. We spoke to the actress behind the part, Irene Bedard who is also the voice actor of Disney’s Pocahontas! We spoke with Irene about her heritage, her experiences on the show, and of course, what it’s like being Pocahontas.
Zahn McClarnon’s performance as Akecheta in Westworld was one of the highlights of season two. We got the chance to interview him and spoke with him about how he got started in acting (2:38), how he ended up on Westworld (8:06), his Native American culture (13:16), the makeup (32:49), horseback riding (37:26), filming in stunning locations (40:53), his role in “Reunion” and a fun behind-the-scenes story (44:16), the brilliance of “Kiksuya” (51:22), and much more!
