Here is our full interview with Ptolemy Slocum (aka Sylvester). We discuss his improv background (2:20), how he ended up on Westworld and his amazing costume (9:16), his thought process behind the character of Sylvester (14:45), his off-screen friendship with Leonardo Nam (aka Felix) (23:11), what it was like being on the set (27:32), the prevalence of nudity (32:45), working with Thandie Newton (35:19), working with Billy Crystal in the City Slickers parody (39:43), a fun behind-the-scenes story (43:39), where he sees his character going in season 2 (46:56), and what it’s like watching as a fan (51:20).
Ptolemy Slocum plays Sylvester, the ornery surgical tech in Westworld. Craig was able to secure an interview with him. Here’s a short preview of their discussion.
Craig, Jake, and Brian dive deep into episode 10 and the season one finale of Westworld, “The Bicameral Mind.” In part one of a two-part series, they discuss Maeve’s escape, the value of Hector and Armistice as sidekicks, Felix’s redemption, Delos security, and the possibility of other parks.
