‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ is still a while away from premiering, and to tide fans over, Sarah Paulson has just revealed her character! Check out the pic!
American Horror Story: Freak Show is set to begin filming in July, but production is clearly underway! On June 12, starring cast member Sarah Paulson revealed to AHS fans and the world who she’ll be playing for Season 4 — and it’s pretty freaky! (Not apologizing for that pun.) Check it out!
‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Sarah Paulson Reveals Two-Headed Character, Bette And Dot
Sarah tweeted the following on June 12, with the image of Bette and Dot attached:
So, as you can see, Sarah will be playing the two-headed Bette and Dot for Season 4 of AHS!
Obviously, it’s hard to tell too much from one picture, but it looks like they’ll have fairly opposing personalities. One has her eyes cast down, demure, and the other is staring intensely into the camera — I guess we know who will be wearing the pants in that sibling relationship! Um, well, technically, I guess they’ll both be wearing the pants, but let’s not get bogged down by technicalities.
UPDATE: Since this article was posted not long after Sarah’s tweet, it has been made clear that this is not a new image, but a Photoshopped one! Looks like everyone got a little too excited. Do you think that the expressions chosen for the Photoshop job were deliberate? Will Bette and Dot have similar or opposing personalities? What would you most like to see — the two of them working together, and maybe even scheming? Or would you prefer that they fight each other tooth and nail, possibly one dominant over the other? Speculate below!
‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Will Take Place In The 1950’s
Just to get you up to speed, the fourth season of American Horror Story will be a period piece, taking place in the 1950s in Jupiter, Florida, in one of the last few freak shows in the U.S. The season has also been confirmed to feature a character named the Clown Killer, according to EW, and a bearded lady — “[their] version of it.” Whatever that means. A hairless man? A bearded child?
Also confirmed to be in the cast are Kathy Bates, and Michael Chiklis as her ex-husband and the father of Evan Peters‘ character. Also on board are Angela Basset, Frances Conroy, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe, and Denis O’Hare. Tragically, this will be Jessica Lange‘s last season.
So, HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Bette and Dot? Anyone have any theories already? Will they have similar or opposing personalities? Are you looking forward to AHS: Freak Show? Let us know!
