Watch ‘Westworld’ Panel at Tribeca Film Festival Awkwardly End Right After Cringeworthy Fan Question (Video)

The “Westworld” panel at the Tribeca Film Festival took itself offline Thursday after its very first question from the audience.

The hit HBO sci-fi series’ slot at Tribeca’s 2018 gathering saw co-creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, and cast members Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright and James Marsden, discuss the upcoming Season 2 with a moderator.

It was followed by a Q&A session that included exactly one question, which ended up being a fan’s request for Nolan — who co-wrote “The Prestige,” “The Dark Knight,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” and “Interstellar” with his brother, Christopher Nolan — to read his screenplay.

Yeah.

“We love the show and how it’s able to keep the audience captivated,” the audience member said. “We love this show. We can’t wait to see what the rest of the season has in store for us. Just a side thing for Jonathan, my brother and I we’re huge fans of ‘Interstellar.’ You wrote that, and we’re actually aspiring screenwriters as well and that inspired us a lot. And you’ve touched something within us and we hope one day we can share our screenplay with you.”

Nolan thanked him before he could continue, and then the moderator said it was getting late and shut that thing down.

While it’s obvious that the majority of the room was not thrilled that was the only query the group answered before things wrapped up —- as they audibly groaned in unison in the video — the festival said the panel didn’t end because of the nature of the question.

“The moderator portion of the panel ran long and we had time for one question during the Q&A and that was the question,” Tribeca’s Executive Vice President of of Communications & Programming Tammie Rosen told TheWrap Friday.

Watch the clip below. The awkward part starts around the 50:00 mark.

“Westworld” Season 2 premieres Sunday at 9/8 c on HBO.
