We have been waiting for this day to come for quite some time now, but on Wednesday night, it will finally be here: the premiere of “American Horror Story: Asylum.” Hopefully, this show will give us another opportunity to see just what Ryan Murphy can do with the horror genre, and will it prove to be just as exciting as everything that we have seen from the show previously. There’s also no question that this season in particular is going to be a challenge for him, after all, the bar has already been set pretty high when it comes to both entertainment and scares already from season 1 of the series.
So what does one of the biggest stars of this new season have to say about their new part? In comparing Sister Jude to her character of Constance from the first season (which was set in a completely different time and universe), here is what Jessica Lange had to say in an interview with TVLine:
“It’s hard to compare the two … It’s different times, a different place, different women coming from different backgrounds and different times historically for women, different histories, different demons.”
Lange’s character is perceived by many to be one of the primary villains of the show this time around, which makes a great deal of sense considering that her character is really helping to oversee a corrupt and disturbing mental institution in the 1960s. Some of the actors stepping into the asylum include the likes of Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, James Cromwell, and Chloe Sevigny, and it is still next to impossible to know just where this story is going to ultimately lead.
