Say it isn't so!!!
In a new interview, the endlessly talented and fierce Emmy-winning Jessica Lange confirmed she's leaving the spooky American Horror Story family:
“I’ll do one more season. That’ll be it.”
You scared us for a second there, Jess.
We knew she had more in her after teasing a contractual obligation to stay for a fourth installment, but hearing it is just sooo hard!
We believe the reason Jessica is sticking around for another scary series of eps is because her supreme goddess character, Fiona Goode, is a ferosh acting gift from Ryan Murphy!
Miz Lange revealed she's really getting to the brain of this heartless and vapid witchy woman—and loving every second of it:
“The spine of the character is that thing of a wasted life. The idea that this woman has gone through life basically like a bulldozer, in the most selfish, self-centric fashion. Things just falling by the wayside. Now, she’s at a moment in her life where she’s confronted by all these things — her mortality; the fact that maybe she’s alone and what did she discard on the way, like her daughter, that could bring something meaningful, but it’s too late. That Portrait of Dorian Gray element fascinates me: What do you trade off for this idea of eternal youth and beauty and how much are you willing to sell for that? How much of your soul are you willing to give up?”
For any of you that watch, her character's been the mayor of struggle city when it comes to aging and the fight to remain youthful!
Luckily for us, the actress dished that Fiona has just started to develop, and we'll FINALLY see a love interest for this evil woman!
Danny Huston will play The Axeman, an early 1900s serial killer who was never found, and coincidentally, Fiona's lustful interest!
It's about to get truly freaky deeky in this Coven, and we can't hardly wait!
