Continuing about her hair in the show she said she can't really compare her AHS wig to the one she wears as Linda Tripp in the upcoming Impeachment: American Crime Story. "One of them I prefer over the other because one is just cooler, and the other one makes me look like Linda Tripp," she said, "that's the thing. It's just a different experience."
While she's remaining tight-lipped about her AHS character, Paulson was a little more open to talking about her role as Tripp. She says the character is completely different from the one she played in The People v. O.J. Simpson, prosecutor Marcia Clark.
"I would say the dominant difference is that Marcia, I think, was truly misperceived and misunderstood and vilified for reasons that were completely absurd," she explained. "Linda actually behaved in ways that were truly questionable. The real challenge of playing her is trying to find a way not to justify her actions, but to understand them enough that I can play that truthfully because standing in judgment of her only complicates my job."
Yesterday, Paulson was nominated for a Golden Globe for her starring role in another Ryan Murphy show, Ratched, marking her fourth Golden Globe nomination, and second in a Murphy show -- in the new interview she confirmed said that while there is a second season of Ratched on the way, no one knows when production will begin. In 2017 she won the award for Best Actress - Miniseries or Television Film for her role in The People v. O.J. Simpson.
"I don't ever want to lose that part of me that thinks this is a very lucky, rarefied air to be breathing," Paulson said about savoring the nomination, "and to really just hold onto my gratitude about it because I have so many extraordinarily talented friends who do not get to make a living doing what they love and the fact that I get to, this always has to just be frosting on a very, very delicious cake."
