I know, I know – we’re all upset.
Jessica Lange had the comeback of all comebacks with her decidedly terrifying/gorgeous/inspiring/overwhelming feature roles in the ‘American Horror Story’ franchise.
From an alcoholic nun, to an amputee owner of a freak show, to a Supreme coven leader – the woman has truly brought light to the first four seasons of the show.
Last year, when ‘American Horror Story: Hotel‘ was announced with Lady Gaga, Lange said she wouldn’t be taking part in the season.
Most were devastated, because it was damned hard to imagine the show without her. But they pulled it off, and we all lived in hope that Lange would return for season 6.
Sadly, it will not be the case.
In an interview with Charlie Rose, Lange said her time with Ryan Murphy‘s iconic horror series was done-zo:
“No, I had four years with that, four seasons, and each year was a marvelous character.Everything changed from one year to another which made it very interesting to me.But no, I think sometimes you come to the end of something and it has had its natural [course].”
The actress speaks about instead reviving the role of Mary Tyrone in the theatre production of Eugene O’Neill’s ‘Long Day’s Journey Into Night’.
