Sarah Paulson Teases 'American Horror Story' 10 Details and Role

Sarah Paulson

The Golden Globe nominee also revealed more about getting into her Impeachment: American Crime Story role.

The more we find out about the upcoming tenth season of American Horror Story, the more we can't wait to see it.

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, AHS star Sarah Paulson talked about her character in the upcoming season.

"The character I'm playing this year on Horror Story has some issues, let's just put it that way," she told the magazine. That's not the only detail she teased for her upcoming role.

"I have a hair color I've never had in my life nor in the show. That's what I can tell you," she said, "and I have a great name. I have a *great* name, which I can't tell you." We need to know more!!!

So far, all we know about the upcoming season is that beaches, tongue tattoos, and sharp teeth are involved. Paulson will be joined by Kathy Bates, Lily Rabe, Billie Lourd, Finn Whittrock, Leslie Grossman, Adina Porter, Angelica Ross, and Macaulay Culkin in the series. It is also allegedly filming in Provincetown and has the working name "Pilgrim."

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."
