White Lotus star drops season three spoiler during filming in Thailand

British actor Theo James has revealed whether or not he’ll be jetting off to Thailand any time soon as filming for White Lotus season three gets underway.

During his appearance on Today with Hoda & Jenna on Wednesday morning, host Jenna Bush Hager¬†couldn’t resist asking Theo about the third instalment of the hit HBO show and said: ‘Are you gonna¬†go to Thailand, or no? I think we asked you the last time you were here, we’re just gonna ask you every time!’

‘Yeah, I am going tomorrow,’ Theo, 39, teased, before laughing and adding: ‘No I’m not really,’ as Hoda Kotb was left open-mouthed – and rather disappointed by his response.

‘No, I am not going to Thailand,’ he confirmed. ‘I’m excited to see that. I think they’re having a great time out there, and they’re out there a long time, I think it’s even longer,’ he added, referring to the four months he spent in¬†Taormina, Sicily, filming White Lotus season two.

Theo played the role of smug holidaymaker Cameron Sullivan in season two of the black comedy drama series, which was created by Mike White and follows the guests and employees of the fictional White Lotus resort chain, whose interactions are affected by their various psychosocial dysfunctions.

Earlier this year it was confirmed that production on season three had begun in¬†Southeast Asia¬†when the show’s official Instagram shared a snap of a slate being used on the first day of filming on February 13.

But there’s plenty of other familiar names joining the new cast including Natasha Rothwell, who played put-upon beauty therapist Belinda in the first series and Brit actors Jason Isaacs who played Lucius Malfoy in Harry Potter and Aimee Lou Wood from Sex Education.

Patrick Schwarzenegger, son of Arnie and Maria Shriver, is set to play a leading role alongside Thai actors Dom Hetrakul and Tayme Thapthimthong.

HBO also revealed Walton Goggins, Sarah Catherine Hook, Sam Nivola, and The Last Kingdom’s Arnas Fedaravińćius have been cast for season three.

Last year, the show’s creator teased¬†that the highly-anticipated third season will be ‘supersized,’ but unfortunately filming was delayed due to the SAG-AFTRA strikes in 2023.
