I have to admit that I’m loving American Horror Story: Coven, not just because it’s the season of the witches, but because it’s also very much the season of the bad-ass women, with the likes of Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and Patti LuPone joining Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson. With Marie Laveau (Bassett) unleashing her wrath on Madame Lalaurie (Bates), Fiona (Lange) adding to the body count, and Cordelia (Paulson) being attacked, the secrets, lies and mysteries are mounting, and there’s just no telling where things will go next.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Sarah Paulson talked about her thoughts on how Asylum turned out, the extraordinary women who are on this season, being less physically and mentally exhausted this time around, how challenging things will get for Cordelia, that her attacker will remain a mystery for now (she has speculated about who it could be, but has no idea), the involvement of the Council of Witchcraft, and just how much crazier things will continue to get. She also talked about the Oscar buzz for 12 Years A Slave, which she’s very proud to be a part of, and her hope that she’ll be able to continue to find a balance between working in film, television and theater. Check out what she had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
