Kathy Bates is no stranger to the horror genre. Indeed, she really made a name for herself as an actress in the Stephen King adaptation of Misery which was a film that garnered her an Oscar for Best Actress.
She has also won an Emmy for her work in the third season of television show American Horror Story and she is back to be a part of this new season of American Horror Story titled Apocalypse. In an interview with Variety, she discussed various aspects about American Horror Story: Apocalypse.
American Horror Story: Apocalypse
For instance, here is what Kathy Bates had to say when it came to the reasons why she wanted to return to American Horror Story:
“Ryan Murphy basically saved my life. When I was sick with cancer years ago and I got a job working with him, he turned my whole life around, and that’s why I want to hang with him. And that’s on a personal level, and on a professional level, he’s the man with the big stick these days — and he comes up with great characters, and [the] key is he loves women: he loves older women, younger women, and to find parts for older women, I can’t say enough about that.”
“That’s why I’m there. It’s a home where I can continue to grow and evolve as an actor. … When my show ‘Disjointed’ was canceled, he got in touch with me and said, ‘Come back.’ The reason I came back was because of Ryan Murphy and because he’s given me so many opportunities to play so many characters I never would have dreamed of playing.”
“When he invited me to come back for this season I was thrilled. … Ryan tells stories that are always more than just the story he’s telling, that’s the best way I can say it.”
