Jessica Lange took home the Emmy for her creepily incredible performance in ‘American Horror Story: Coven,’ but will she return to the spooky series after ‘Freak Show?’
American Horror Story has become a cult favorite, and what would it be without Jessica Lange? The actress, 65, won for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie at the Primetime Emmys in Los Angeles on August 25, and HollywoodLife.com caught up with her after the big moment. Read on for Jessica’s interview — she promises that Freak Show will be the best season yet (and hopefully not her last)!
Jessica Lange Wins Emmy For ‘American Horror Story’
Jessica Lange won the Emmy on August 25, her second win for American Horror Story, third Emmy overall and and third nomination for the miniseries.
The actress told HollywoodLife.com she was “stunned” and did not expect to win, but if you watch AHS, you know why Jessica got award — she’s incredible. And lucky for us, the actress promises that next season will be even better than her award-worthy performances from past rounds.
“Well, I’m actually looking forward to this season,” Jessica told HollywoodLife.com at the award show. “I think this season is going to be the most extraordinary that we’ve done. I think that what we’ve got – what’s working there, the potential is pretty extraordinary. And if it can all come together, and if we can keep on track, I think it’s going to be something really, really special.”
“There’s a lot of chaos, but I find I work well in chaotic situations,” she admitted of her time on set with the eclectic cast. “There’s tremendous creative energy, always. I just feel very fortunate to have these people to work with.”
Jessica Lange: Will She Return To ‘AHS’ After ‘Freak Show’?
While Jessica promises the best season yet, will Freak Show be her last? When we told her we had heard that she’d be returning for potential seasons post circus-fest, she responded coyly: “Who told you that?”
Hopefully, she won’t be leaving anytime soon because her fans, for one, will be devastated. “One day I was walking down the street in New Orleans, and I passed this group of young men that were sitting on a stoop,” Jessica tells HollywoodLife.com. “And as I went by, I heard the guy say, ‘Holy sh*t balls. The Supreme!’ I thought that was the greatest thing ever.”
HollywoodLifers, would you be upset if Jessica didn’t return to American Horror Story? Do you think that Freak Show will be the best yet? Let us know!
