Sarah Paulson, who plays Shelby Miller, in American Horror Story 6: Roanoke, said that she has a new ‘kick’ which started with another TV show which she carried on with AHS.
The new ‘kick’ according to Paulson, was the discipline not to watch any of her movies or TV shows. The decision came after she began receiving praise and, of course, awards for her work.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Paulson said that she’s not watching any episode of the Roanoke series because she is no longer interested. This kick started during her role as prosecutor Marcia Clark in ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,’ where she won her first Emmy for the role.
With that declaration, Paulson is joining ranks with fellow American Horror Story, actress Jessica Lange who also said she was not watching any episode of the series unless she goes to the screening.
“It was the first time in my career where I really felt such an onslaught of complimentary, effusive reactions to the show itself and to my work on it, that I started to get very nervous about my typical way of watching something and ripping it to shreds when it’s my own work,” she said during her an interview.
She added, that she would rather enjoy the nice things people say about her work and to not get too emotional about her roles. Speaking of roles, Paulson said that her character in Roanoke is actually the weirdest she has played compared to the other characters she has played in the series.
With episode 6 almost around the corner, the actress is as secretive as all the other cast of Roanoke, not giving anything away until the big twist director Ryan Murphy is talking about. What fans know so far based on the last episode is that they were just actors re-enacting what happened to the couple and other people in Roanoke.
American Horror 6: Roanoke airs every Wednesday on FX at 10 p.m. E.T.
