Los Angeles: “The Leftovers” actress Katja Herbers has been roped in to star in the second season of sci-fi thriller series “Westworld”.

In the season two of the HBO series, Herbers will plays Grace, a seasoned guest in Westworld whose latest visit comes at the park’s darkest hour, reported Entertainment Weekly.

The 36-year-old actress is the third new series regular for season two and the first brand-new cast addition. She joins Talulah Riley and Louis Herthum, both of whom were promoted after recurring in season one.
