Ryan Murphy 'AHS' Interview (Spoilers?)


Entertainment Weekly has a brief but fun interview with 'American Horror Story' head honcho Ryan Murphy in which he delves into "Smiley Face", Lana and Sister Jude. It's a pretty good little read and better than listening to him talk about 'Glee'.

Here's the first bit:


[SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED THE LATEST EPISODE OF AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM!]

Have you caught your breath yet, American Horror Story fans? The concluding installment of Asylum‘s two-part episode “I Am Anne Frank” was a roller coaster ride that saw Sister Jude (Jessica Lange) regress to drinking, the aliens attack Grace (Lizzie Brochere) and Lana (Sarah Paulson) in chains in the basement of Bloody Face’s lair. Oh, and Dr. Thredson (Zachary Quinto) is Bloody Face!!! EW talked to co-creator Ryan Murphy about this brilliant episode, Bloody Face’s backstory, and a major clue about the series’ alien encounters.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: This episode in particular just felt like a tribute to your production design. This one felt really big.

RYAN MURPHY:
Interestingly enough, this was not one of the more expensive ones but the thing we had in this episode is [director] Alfonso Gomez-Rejon who is such a great director and really gets the sensibility of the show. We have a great, great team and I do remember on this episode we had really long production meetings and we redid things. I remember one of the writers said, “I think the lamp needs a second nipple.” That is the attention to detail! Sometimes you get lucky with a great script, great cast. Our production designer Mark [Worthington] is so talented. I think it was an interesting episode because there were three things in it: Briarcliff which is very claustrophobic and dark and gothic; Thredson’s house, which is the beginning of the post-modern thing; and then there was the Anne Frank thing which was very suburban. So I think there was a lot of life in the episode.

The rest of the interview can be found over at EW here.

'American Horror Story' airs on the F/X network at 9pm on Wednesdays.
