Considering she's appeared on two iterations of "American Horror Story," you would think that Taissa Farmiga might be one of the show's most devoted watchers. Not so. In fact, Farmiga told MTV News at the South by Southwest Festival (where she was promoting her new movie "The Final Girls") that she completely skipped out on watching "American Horror Story: Freak Show," but for what we have to say is a pretty solid reason.
"I need to get the right group of people who will just support me," she said. "I literally hate horror things, and it's my friends up on screen. They're dying! It's emotional!"
Fair point! Pretty much everyone Farmiga has worked with on "American Horror Story" ends up meeting their bloody demise, whether in fantasy sequence or actuality. Case in point, that time not one but two of Sarah Paulson's severed heads were displayed for all the world to see:
And various other forms of nastiness.
But maybe Farmiga will fare better with the fifth season of "American Horror Story," the first version of the show without Jessica Lange, but with a new star in a prime role: Lady Gaga. What does the "Murder House" and "Coven" veteran think of Gaga as the newest "Horror Story" queen?
Farmiga only has one piece of advice: "I hope she can scream."
Don't think that's going to be a problem.
