American Horror Story: Asylum Season 2 ScoopAmerican Horror Story: Scoop on Franka Potente’s character in season 2 from Entertainment Weekly’s Sandra Gonzalez



Here’s some scoop on American Horror Story from Entertainment Weekly’s Sandra Gonzalez’s The Spoiler Room column, which was posted on 9/1/12.



I adore your column! Do you have any secrets from the upcoming series of American Horror Story? The teasers are so creepy and good! — George


Well George, here’s hoping you’ve already picked up this awesome, scoop-filled issue. If you did and are still craving more, I asked Copper star Franka Potente (Run Lola Run) for even the tiniest hint about her character, who appears in episode four and five of the upcoming season. “I’m not allowed to tell you really anything,” she says. “But there’s this pretty crazy revelation about my character. You know  [how when]Hitchcock [was] at his best he had this momentum in his movies where you think something’s insane but possible? My character has that momentum. And anybody who has seen this show will have [that feeling] because it’s related to something everybody knows historically.” It’s a head-scratcher, I know. But considering this year features aliens and Nazis, there’s little sense to be made of it all at this point – which is what makes it so delicious!



Yea, this isn’t so  much of a scoop as it is a guarantee that the second anthology season of American Horror Story will provide some OMG moments, much like the first season did all year.


What was scooped here for me though is actress Franka Potente will appear in two episodes, episode 4 and 5. I loved her in The Bourne franchise, and was sad to see her leave it. Give producer Ryan Murphy (Glee) tons of credit for writing great little parts in which fine actors and actresses can come in and guest star rather seamlessly.


American Horror Story will return on Wednesday October 17, 2012 at 10pm on FX.
