'American Horror Story: Coven': Sarah Paulson Says She 'Could End Up The Evil One This Year'


"American Horror Story: Coven" has not yet started filming, but hints about the third season of FX's highly-anticipated series are already trickling out.

Sarah Paulson -- who had a minor role as a medium on Season 1 of the series and a major role in the second "Asylum" season as reporter-turned-patient Lana Winters -- recently told The Hollywood Reporter that fans should expect some big changes in "American Horror Story: Coven."

When asked how different her Season 3 character will be from Lana, Paulson told THR, "Definitely different. Basically, she's going to look different, and my relationship to Jessica Lange is going to be quite different this time. At the beginning of last season, no one knew that Lana would be the hero, so it's possible I could end up the evil one this year. As of right now, there will be some of Lana Winters' qualities in my character, but I don't know for sure."

After winning the Critic's Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Movie or Mini-Series on Monday night for her performance in "Asylum," Paulson joked about "American Horror Story: Coven" with PopSugar. "There's a lot of witchy bitches on this show," Paulson said. "There's a lot of women ... There are no men. Right now, there's Evan Peters and that's all we know. But I'll take it. Evan Peters is enough man for me, if you know what I'm sayin'."

Peters hasn't revealed much about his role, but he did recently talk to Gold Derby about "American Horror Story: Coven." "I'm excited. I think it's gonna be really scary -- much scarier than last season -- and it's gonna be fun," he said. "It's going to be really fun to shoot. I'm recharged and ready to go this round."

In addition to Paulson and Lange, lone man Peters joins returning "American Horror Story" stars Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Taissa Farmiga for "Coven." And there are plenty of new ladies as well. Peters' girlfriend Emma Roberts has been added to the cast, as well as Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe.
