And so our first American Horror Story Season 4 character has been revealed. The always wonderful Sarah Paulson revealed on Twitter that she will actually be playing TWO roles– conjoined twins Bette and Dot, who share a single body:
This is so awesome; not only does it mean we’ll get two performances out of this great actress, but it proves Ryan Murphy and his team are really going all out when it comes to the “freaks” in Freak Show. While there’s a lot of things I love about AHS, the production value has always played a huge role, adding to the overall thematic climate of the story (and often making for some striking, disturbing visuals). I’m glad they are not shying away from really embracing what a gold mine of bizarre character designs and truly unique visuals this new season’s theme can be.
We’ve still got a long wait until the new storyline launches this October, but I hope we keep getting cool casting/ character reveals like this for the rest of the summer. The Sarah Paulson times two news has me totally amped for Freak Show already!
