Minn. native Lange to play witch on upcoming season of 'American Horror Story'


More information has been revealed about Cloquet native Jessica Lange's character on the upcoming season of the FX anthology series "American Horror Story," reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Officially titled "American Horror Story: Coven," the series this season will star Lange as a witch named Fiona.

Lange told a group of reporters during the Television Critics Association's annual press tour Friday that "AHS: Coven" will feature some witches and some historical characters, and it "encompasses a lot of different stories."

"I've shot two days so far, one day entrances and exits, the other day a scene. I don't know who the character is yet. It comes in little dribs and drabs," Lange said.

Lange earned an Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie category at the 2012 Emmys for the first season of the show, and earned an Emmy nomination last month for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie for the second season, which was titled "American Horror Story: Asylum."

"American Horror Story: Asylum" leads this year's Emmys with 17 nominations, including an Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie nod for Sarah Paulson -- who will play Lange's daughter in "American Horror Story: Coven."

Also starring Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, "American Horror Story: Coven" will debut in October.

Lange, 64, has been nominated for six Oscars during her career, and won for Best Supporting Actress for “Tootsie” in 1983 and “Blue Sky” in 1995.
