Sarah Paulson Regrets Making One Season Of American Horror Story
| Last updated
Sarah Paulson says she regrets being part of one season of American Horror Story.
The actor is set to star in the latest instalment of the hit series, having appeared in eight consecutively before taking a break a couple of years ago.
But the 46-year-old has now revealed she wishes she had bowed out a bit sooner before having a rest, saying she wasn't a fan of season six, American Horror Story: Roanoke.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, she said: "I just don't care about this season at all.
"I know people will get mad at me for saying it, but for me, this was post having played Marcia [in American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson] and it was what I went to do right after finishing Marcia.
"I was so underwhelmed by the whole experience because I felt like I had entered into a new place inside of myself in terms of what I thought possible, in terms of what I might be willing to see if I can do.
"I felt really kind of trapped by my responsibility and my contractual obligation to do American Horror Story."
She added: "As much as it's my home, and I've loved it always, it was the first time I felt like I wish I could have gone to Ryan and said, 'Please let me sit this one out'."
But fans of the series won't have long to wait to see her return, with the 10th season set to drop on 25 August.
For those of you who don't know, the series, created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, takes on a different horror theme each time, whether that be a haunted house, or a sinister medical facility, or a coven of witches, it's always the same, but always different.
We're not immediately sure what the new theme will be outside of the enigmatic name Double Feature, but that has never deterred fans from returning over the years to see what the two showrunners have to offer.
It seems to be set on the Eastern Seaboard in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and there are rumours about a weird contortionist, and something to do with sharp teeth.
Murphy has also teased fans with brief clips of the new series, and it looks like it could have an extra-terrestrial slant this time around.
Other returning cast members include Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Finn Wittrock, Lily Rabe, Leslie Grossman, Adina Porter and Angelica Ross
Another interesting addition to the cast is Home Alone star and general legend Macaulay Culkin.
He was announced by Murphy through a photo that showed series regular Leslie Grossman locked arm-in-arm with Culkin, captioned: "Something wicked this way comes."
