Sarah Paulson, alongside Evan Peters, is the performer who television viewers likely contemplate at whatever point “American Horror Story” pops into their minds. The actress has been an integral part of the show since its initiation, showing up in eight consecutive seasons prior to taking a temporary break for “American Horror Story: 1984.” However, as indicated by Nerdist, she’ll get back to the fold for “AHS: Double Feature” and without a doubt have another significant part in the success of the spooky anthology series.
Each long-running TV show has its ups and downs, and some series dip in quality contrasted with others. Indeed, even the most ardent “American Horror Story” fans believe that a few installments have been disappointing, and this sentiment is repeated by the cast, as well. Paulson plainly has a great deal of love for the scary saga, yet she’s been open about enjoying a few aspects of it — particularly with regards to the quality of one specific season.
A few projects simply don’t live up to the guidelines of the performers involved, and this notion applies to Sarah Paulson’s role in “American Horror Story: Roanoke.” During a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter (via IndieWire), the actress uncovered that she “[doesn’t] care” for that season as she felt she’d developed as a performer and it didn’t live up to her hopes.
Paulson noticed that she got back to the show for “Roanoke” subsequent to showing up in “American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson,” in which she played Marcia Clark, the lead prosecutor in the previously mentioned case. At the point when it came time to get back to “AHS,” it was because she was authoritatively obligated to do as such, rather than being excited. “I was so underwhelmed by the whole experience because I felt like I had entered into a new place inside of myself in terms of what I thought possible, in terms of what I might be willing to see if I can do,” Paulson admitted. “I felt really kind of trapped by my responsibility and my contractual obligation to do ‘American Horror Story.'”
Paulson finished up by saying that “American Horror Story” will always be her “home,” however she wished she moved toward maker Ryan Murphy and inquired as to whether she could sit out of the 6th season. That probably won’t be shocking information to certain fans, nonetheless, as “Roanoke” is one of the lower-ranked seasons of the show (per Rotten Tomatoes).
