It's part of HBO's efforts to fix pay disparity across the board. 

In a recent intervivew with The Wrap, Evan Rachel Wood revealed that, at last, she'll receive equal pay as her male costars on season 3 of Westworld, despite the fact she's been the lead character in the show the whole time.

"I think I'm just now to the point where I'm getting paid the same as my male co-stars," she said--describing how she'll now receive the same check as Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris. "I was just told that, you know, 'Hey, you're getting equal pay.' And I almost got emotional. I was like, 'I have never been paid the same as my male counterparts ... never, never.' I'm always fighting for that. Westworld, it's like, I get it a little more. It's like, 'Well, you're Anthony Hopkins or Ed Harris.' But I think now we're all doing equal amounts of work and really hard work."

Asked whether or not HBO seems genuine in their public claims to fix pay disparity across the board, Wood praised the network's sincerity.

"There is a lot of trying to make things equal and trying to make things fair," she said. "This is the first time that somebody made a point of being like, 'Hey you're getting this. And you deserve it.' And that was nice."
