American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson has another character in mind that she wants to play once again in the hit anthology.
Paulson has appeared in all seasons of FX hit show. In all characters she portrayed in the show, she wished to play the role of Cordelia Foxx in Coven again. In the previous season, Paulson reprise her Lana Winters role from the Asylum.
Paulson was asked during the PaleyFest panel about her AHS characters that she would like to play again. The actress also teased that viewers might see the character again in the future. Variety quoted the actress saying:
“Probably Cordelia. We only got to see her just getting her powers. I just would like to know if the power might have been something that kind of changed her. Maybe we’ll get to see that.”
In Coven, Cordelia is the headmistress at Miss Robichaux’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies. He mother, Fiona Goode (Jessica Lange), insisted she was the Supreme witch but in the end, it was revealed that Cordelia is the Supreme witch.
American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy has previously revealed that future seasons of the Emmy-winning show will be connected with the past seasons. The showrunner had also mentioned in the past that he would like to revisit Coven.
American Horror Story Season 7
So far, Murphy had confirmed that the theme of season 7 would be the most recent presidential election. The season will also tackle Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton.
Murphy had confirmed that Paulson will star in season 7 but also clarified that the actress will not be playing Clinton. It seems like not portraying Clinton is fine with the American Crime Story actress. Paulson is actually interested in playing Trump.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Paulson admitted that she would like to play the role of the real estate mogul-turned U.S. president. The publication asked her on who among the returning cast members of AHS should step into Trump’s shoes. Paulson replied:
“I’d like to play Donald Trump.”
Meanwhile, Paulson might also play the role of Princess Diana in Murphy’s other anthology series, Feud. Fellow AHS alum Kathy Bates earlier called Paulson as “the people’s princess” during the PaleyFest panel. Bates’ moniker to Paulson received a loud cheer from the audience which also made the actress blushed, Variety noted.
After the applause subsided, someone from the crowd also yelled to Bates that the veteran actress will be the Queen. The second season of Feud will feature the late princess and Prince Charles.
American Horror Story will return in FX this fall.
