With just over a month left before American Horror Story: Freak Show hits the small screen
, star Sarah Paulson is describing her role as conjoined twins Bette and Dot her "most challenging so far."
In past seasons of the show, which has a different plot each season, Paulson played a medium, a journalist and a witch.
Paulson recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly
and discussed her double role:
"There's the inherent reality that everyone knows that I do not have two heads. So we're asking the audience to go with us on this journey. I have anxiety because I just want so much for everything about it to work that people forget that they're watching something that they know isn't real and that they buy it and they believe it."
Paulson also said that she believes, "this season will be the best yet."
"I do know from an artistic standpoint... as a reader when I read the scripts, the stories are so rich and complicated and it's just so fascinating. I can't imagine it not being something that people embrace."
What does she say about this season that is similar to the second season, American Horror Story: Asylum?
"It's got that feeling of Asylum
, in that it's really about something: this idea of being a forgotten soul in the world that's just been cast aside. Everybody feels like that at some point in their lives."
American Horror Story: Freak Show
will air on FX starting October 21, 2014.
