On “American Horror Story: Asylum,” Frances Conroy had a pretty integral role in the proceedings as the Angel of Death. However, she did the vast majority of her work on the season while saying very little dialogue, and served little purpose to the story unless she was ushering someone away from the world.
So is that going to change moving forward into the still-untitled third season? Based on what the actress saying now, it sure sounds like it. Speaking as a part of a brand-new interview with ShockTilYouDrop.com, the actress explained that this time around, she will be able to take part in much more of the story. However, she is still keeping mum on just what sort of story that will be at the end of the day:
“It’s going to start up again in July or August in New Orleans, I’ll be part that and will have a fairly substantial part in it. I’ll be in 10 of the episodes of what I think will be a 13-part season. That will be interesting to see what’s written, the writers are so good and I can’t wait to see where it goes … I know there’s been a little bit of teasing [about the setting], they’re trying to keep it all hush hush so there are surprises. I’m interested in seeing what world we’ll inhabit.”
Right now, the biggest rumor that is floating around is that there is some sort of witchcraft theme coming, at least based off of the comments that Dylan McDermott made when speaking about the show at PaleyFest. There were also some hints about it in the finale few episodes of “Asylum,” in particular the playing of the song “I Put a Spell On You.”
