Jessica Lange considers her future on 'American Horror Story'
Hot on the heels of her Golden Globe win earlier this month, Jessica Lange found herself clutching a SAG award Sunday night after she won the supporting actress in a drama category for her work as a meddling neighbor in FX’s “American Horror Story.” Speaking of the challenge the role presented, Lange, who thus far has been mostly known for her film work, talked about adjusting to a new medium.
"It was just being completely open to the possibility of anything happening within the moment," she said. "I found that very exhilarating. It kind of kicked it up to a different level. It’s been an experience that I didn’t have before."
Lange is still coy about whether she’ll return for another season of “American Horror Story,” saying: “I’m thinking about it very seriously.”
Acting for TV is one thing. Watching it is apparently an entirely different matter. When asked whether any celebrities have told her they are fans of the show, Lange was modest.
“I don’t watch TV myself," she said, "so I don’t expect anyone else to.” With the exception of awards voters, right?
