Westworld actor Jonathan Tucker, who plays theme park host Major Craddock in the HBO drama, has announced that he is donating any earnings he gets from his work on Fox shows to a migrant charity.
The actor shared the news on Twitter, writing: "used to watch @FoxNews programs from time to time. registered independent. ill be donating all @foxsearchlight @FOXTV @FOXSports @20thcenturyfox residuals to @RAICESTEXAS."
Tucker has previously worked on two Fox projects, appearing in two episodes of TV drama The Practice and 2001 film The Deep End.

It seems that he won't be working with Fox again in the near future, but he plans to donate any money he gets from those previous projects to RAICES, a migrant legal services charity in Texas.
Tucker received a great deal of praise for his statement, with fans and friends telling him how proud they are of his actions.
The actor isn't the only famous face to have expressed his anger in the wake of the news that migrant children are being separated from their parents at the US border and taken to migrant detention centres.
Modern Family co-creator Steve Levitan, Bridesmaids director Paul Feig and The 40 Year Old Virgin director Judd Apatow have also criticised Fox News for its coverage of the news.
Meanwhile, MSNBC news anchor Rachel Maddow broke down in tears live on air this week when she was unable to complete her report on the 'tender age shelters'.
US President Donald Trump has now signed an executive order barring the separation of families at the border, but questions remain over whether there is any plan of action to reunite families already separated.
