Join our live chat with 'American Horror Story's' Sarah Paulson

August 19, 2013|By Yvonne Villarreal

Join Emmy nominee Sarah Paulson, star of FX's "American Horror Story: Asylum," for a live chat today at 2 p.m. PDT.

Paulson made us tremble with her portrayal of Lana Winters, a '50s-era reporter held against her will as a mental patient last season on the anthology horror series. The horror didn't stop there. Lana, a lesbian on the downlow, was forced to undergo aversion conversion therapy; she also endured electroshock therapy, rape, and, uh, breast-feeding of Zachary Quinto's character? (It is called "Horror Story" after all.)

After all that, the least they could do was nominate Paulson for an Emmy, right? So they did, adding another notch to her belt -- she was nominated last year for her role as former Sarah Palin advisor Nicolle Wallace in HBO's "Game Change"

Now Paulson has signed on for more "AHS" torture. She'll appear in the upcoming season -- "American Horror Story: Coven,"  which centers on a coven of witches. Paulson will play Cordelia, daughter to "AHS" superstar Jessica Lange (who will play Fiona).

Paulson will be joining us live in the L.A. Times newsroom. We'll talk to her about Lana's journey, light at the end of the tunnel on a dark series, and why the process made her eager to sign on for more "AHS" scares.

If you have questions you'd like me to ask her, post in the comments section or tweet me at @villarrealy.
