EMMYS Q&A: Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Scott Bakula

By | Tuesday August 27, 2013 @ 10:33am PDT

AwardsLine Editor Christy Grosz, Managing Editor Anthony D’Alessandro and contributors Paul Brownfield and Thomas J. McLean assist with Deadline’s TV coverage.

Lead acting mini/movie nominee Jessica Lange (American Horror Story: Asylum) and supporting acting hopefuls Sarah Paulson (also for American Horror Story: Asylum) and Scott Bakula (Behind The Candelabra) share thoughts on their characters, shows and nominations.

JESSICA LANGE, (American Horror Story: Asylum, FX)

AwardsLine: What attracted you to American Horror Story: Asylum?
Lange: I have to admit that the horror genre is not something I am a fan of. Really, what drew me to it was the description of the character and what I knew (creator Ryan Murphy) would write for me, what I would be given to play. So that, more than anything, was why I signed on for the first season. Then, along the way, we started talking about the story for the next season, which I found even more interesting, because of the overarching themes, which seemed more powerful to me, dealing with things that I love delving into—madness and a kind of failed life, retribution, redemption.
