The freak show is packing it in! Ahead of the Jan. 21 finale of ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ we spoke EXCLUSIVELY with star Mat Fraser, and he told us the final episode is basically going to blow some minds. We’ve got the scoop!
Sadly, we have arrived at the end of the season for American Horror Story: Freak Show, and we kind of can’t imagine what the show has in store for the sure to be bonkers finale. To get some intel about what we can maybe expect, we spoke EXCLUSIVELY with cast member Mat Fraser, and he confirmed our suspicion that the finale is going to be completely insane!
‘AHS: Freak Show’ Ending: Mat Fraser Says It ‘Blew My Mind’
We always think American Horror Story couldn’t possibly get any more twisted– and then it always does! That sounds like it will continue to be true during the finale of American Horror Story: Freak Show, which airs on FX on Jan. 21.
Prior to the finale, HollywoodLife.com spoke EXCLUSIVELY to Mat (who plays Paul on the show) and he told us to, per usual, expect the unexpected. “Good writing, good storytelling is when it makes a promise up front and then it delivers on its promise,” Mat said. “I can tell you with assurance that all the promises are honored–in no uncertain terms, in a way that blew my mind when I read the last episode. It just blew my mind.”
Mat even told us that when he read the last part of the episode, he couldn’t contain his excitement. “I squealed. I got the most excited from the entire series that I have been so far!
The Moment Of Truth: Reading The Script
Just like us viewers, actors on the show are surprised to learn the show’s storylines because creator Ryan Murphy does not reveal his secrets to anyone! “No one ever questions [Ryan]. It’s very much the thing that all of us actors like to discover: what’s going to happen when we read the script.”
In fact, Mat said that he’s never even sure if his character will survive a given episode until he’s read the script! “I start at the back and flip backwards to the word ‘Paul’ and if it’s near the end of the episode I’m like ‘Ah thank God, I’m not dead yet!'”
Are you guys excited for the Freak Show finale?
