“I was freaking out before I even saw the dead body. I had to get a full head prosthetic, but I told them I didn’t want to see it until we shot the actual take. I was really psyching myself out before hand, and the reaction you see is real.” —Taissa Farmiga
this picture makes me want to cry for several reasons
The scene where she entered the recreation room, in her hospital gown, and the other patients were staring at her was a really powerful moment that really personified the 180 she’s taken. What do you remember about shooting that seen?
Jessica Lange: I love working with Sarah [Paulson]. She’s a wonderful actress. It always depends on how well written the scene is and I thought they really wrote a lovely scene there. It’s definitely a transition, it’s a turning point. It’s one of those moments where the rest of the story is going to be triggered from that action. Those kinds of scenes are great to play.
