Asked if she’d be back for the stay. the celebrated Lange said, “Weve had a great run. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters, and in all the madness, I loved the writers, actors, Ryan, the whole insanity of it, the stories, shooting here, shooting in New Orleans, everything. To cut to the chase, yes, Im done.
Throughout her time on American Horror Story, Lange was huge component of the show’s kooky appeal, its anything-goes atmosphere anchored by her often tremendous performances. Lange essayed neighbor Constance in first season Murder House, the head nun of a 50s hospital for the disturbed in Asylum, the ultimate witch bitch Supreme in Coven and lastly, sideshow matriarch Elsa Mars in Freak Show.
