Jessica Lange spoke to press about her future on American Horror Story this morning. It’s the first time the actress has addressed season 3 since FX officially announced the return of the series for a third round.
“Well, we haven’t really talked about it too much,” Lange said. “All of that stuff is still under discussion. I think I will try to get it depending on what the story is and who the character is. So, we’ll see what happens.”
She was then asked if there’s anything in season 3 she would be drawn to.
“I haven’t really thought it through,” she said. “When we started talking about season 2, I had very clear ideas of what we wanted to do. I never played an alcoholic before and I wanted to play a great drunk scene. Also, the whole area of madness. Those were things I specifically had in mind when we talked about the character of Sister Jude. Season 3? I’m just so exhausted from this season, I really don’t have a thought about next season yet. I’m sure a lot of stuff will come up, but as of now I haven’t given it any thought.”
So, what have we learned? It’s a bit too early to discuss the future – but we all want to see her return, that’s for sure!
