Actor Jeffrey Wright confirmed he was among the stars sent home from the Westworld set, tweeting: "Got an unexpected and unfortunate day off owing to the #CreekFire & #RyeFire", he wrote.

Due to a sudden spread of risky wildfires overnight - something brought about by a combination of dry terrain and high winds - filming for the time being has been shut down.

"Westworld" and "S.W.A.T." are the latest shows to freeze all motor functions due to wildfires.

An estimated 38,000 people have been asked to evacuate from the region, officials said Tuesday.

Both dramas shoot near Santa Clarita, where a blaze sparked earlier this morning and grew to 200 acres by 10:50 a.m. PT, according to the Los Angeles Times. HBO said in a statement that producers chose to shut down the show's production to avoid any danger to actors or crew members.
