Jessica Lange Emmy Interview in Press Room 2012

Jessica Lange Talks American Horror Story in Emmy Press Room

Jessica Lange won the Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a miniseries or movie for the first season of American Horror Story, but when she stopped by the press room, the chatter was all about season two. Lange talked about how excited she was that show creator Ryan Murphy is changing things up in such a big way, and she gave a hint about just how crazy things are going to get.

On learning that American Horror Story would be totally different in season two: "I was actually excited by the idea, because I felt we had told that story in the first season. To return to it was less interesting to me than starting afresh with a whole new place, time, characters, story, circumstances. I'm actually enjoying it. It's like doing a different film."

On working with Ryan Murphy: "It's very exciting. I never know exactly where he's going with his characters or with his stories. It's always surprising, and 99 percent of the time, it's very rewarding. He's got an amazing imagination and that translates to the writing, which gives me a lot to do. It's a great collaboration."

On the weirdness level of season two: "It's a more complex story. Ryan likes to create these things around themes. Last year, it was infidelity; this year, it's about faith and madness. I think the themes are bigger this year, which allows all of us to go further. My character goes from A to Z in this one."
