In the slavery-era drama "12 Years a Slave," her hair and her manner are darker in the role of Mistress Epps, wife of Michael Fassbender's demented slave owner Edwin Epps. It's a role that requires the actress to explore jealousy, sex and contempt - as well as feeling pain and doling some out. Paulson, who also stars on the FX network's "American Horror Story: Coven," couldn't be more delighted or honored.
