“My career doesn’t quite look like how I once imagined it,” she says, noting that as a teen, she filled her locker with photos of her then-idol Julia Roberts, “but my main thing now is I just want to work on things that scare the shit out of me because I may not be able to do it.” In person, perhaps buoyed by the wine, Paulson projects both an intense confidence and a beguiling vulnerability.
She’s frank when discussing her life outside acting, whether it be her bouts of insomnia or the mild debauchery of the previous evening, which was spent in the French Quarter and ended with her dancing at one of the city’s most notorious dive bars.
“The moment I saw the set,” Paulson says, “these huge striped tents and a broken-down Ferris wheel on the water—I knew that from a visual standpoint this season would be unmatched.” The freak-show setting, Paulson adds, is also “more in line with my personal tastes.” Which means it’s more enjoyable.
“My character in Coven wasn’t as much fun as playing Lana,” she continues, referring to Lana Winters, the gay journalist in American Horror Story: Asylum, a role that earned Paulson her first Emmy nomination for the show. I’ve never been one of those people who has a very healthy sense of themselves.
She has to do each scene multiple times, first as one twin and then as the other, and on occasion her co-stars lose track of whether they’re speaking to Bette or Dot.
Jessica Lange, who plays Elsa Mars, a former German cabaret star who manages the failing freak show, found the process especially frustrating, according to Paulson.
AHS’s creepy milieu was easier for everyone to get a bead on.“In the beginning, Jessica would get so confused,” she says.“She was always cursing: ‘I don’t even know who the fuck I’m looking at!” For now, the daunting nature of American Horror Story is keeping her occupied.The show’s theater-troupe template — each season, the main actors take on new roles in a self-contained story — has made it Paulson’s “dream job.” She was midway through playing the supreme witch Cordelia Foxx in last season’s American Horror Story: Coven when Murphy pulled her aside and informed her that he had figured out her character for the next season.
