American Horror Story: Freak Show – Sarah Paulson’s character revealed


Ever since the curtain fell on the final episode of American Horror Story: Coven, fans of the creepy FX Original Series have been clamoring for any information they could get their hands on about the next season of the show.

Fans wanted to know everything from which of their favorite stars would be returning for the new season, where the new season would take place, and even what characters we could be looking forward to.

Some of those questions still remain unanswered; however, one of them has indeed been granted an answer.

Thanks to Sarah Paulson and her lovely Twitter account, we now know that she will be playing not one, but two characters in the upcoming fourth season of American Horror Story, which has been branded Freak Show.

As it turns out that she will be playing the role of sisters by the names of Bette and Dot. Unfortunately, that is about the extent of the information. However, she did offer a sneak peek at her characters.

She is onto something. They always have said that two heads are better than one. With the amount of lies and betrayal that usually come with each new season of American Horror Story, you can bet that she will need all the brain power she can get her hands on to outsmart the competition and stay one step ahead of the rest.

According to E! Online, the next season will film in New Orleans and will be set in Florida in the 1950’s.

Now, while we may not have a lot of details in regards to the storyline, it should give you some reassurance to know that Paulson is incredibly excited about the new season.

“Holy s–t!” she told E! Online “I feel like that’s the appropriate reaction you want when you read the first script of American Horror Story. So it’s very exciting and totally nerve-wracking in the best way, because you think, ‘How the hell am I going to pull this off?!’ And as an actor, I think that’s an exciting thing to feel.”

She also told E! Online that her character would require her to do a lot of physical things. Did she indulge us as to what those physical things are? Of course not! They have to leave something to the imagination while we wait for the new season, don’t they?

Also joining Paulson on the cast of the next season is American Horror Story alums Kathy BatesAngela BassettFrances Conroy and The Shield star Michael Chiklis.

So, what do you think of the new piece of the American Horror Story puzzle? What do you think we can look forward to from her character in the upcoming season? What other eerie things does Ryan Murphy have in store for us? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
