Interview with Franka Potente of
"American Horror Story: Asylum" on FX
FX NETWORK: American Horror Story: Asylum
November 8, 2012/1:00 p.m. PST
Franka Potente, American Horror Story: Asylum
Moderator Welcome to the American Horror Story: Asylum
Conference Call. At this time, all participants are in a
listen-only mode. Later, we will conduct a question and
answer session. Instructions will be given at that time. As
a reminder, this call is being recorded.
I would now like to introduce your host, Mr. Matthew
Mitchell with FX.
M. Mitchell Hi, everyone. Thank you for joining todayís
conference call for Franka Potente who plays Anne Frank for
American Horror Story: Asylum. We know that everyone has
seen both parts one and two. If you can keep questions for
part two until after next week airs just out of courtesy for
our viewers, weíd appreciate that. At this time, weíll turn
it over to start the questions and answers.
Moderator The first question is going to be from Erin
Willard with SciFiLafayette.com.
E. Willard Itís SciFi Mafia. Youíre such a wonderful actor
and you brought a presence to this part that made the
identity kind of completely believable. So, thank you so
much for your work. How did you first get involved in this
F. Potente I got asked to take a general meeting with Ryan
Murphy. So, I went to the Paramount lot and met him in his
very nice office, and I didnít really expect anything until
he went right ahead and was talking about a really awesome,
cool part that he had for me. And well, he writes for ...
American Horror Story, Glee, which one of your shows is it,
and he didnít tell me too much. There was really no script
at the time, but I was a fan of the first season of American
Horror Story, and of course, I said I would be part of
anything that he was envisioning for me.
E. Willard How did it progress? What point did you find out
that you would be Anne Frank?
F. Potente That was something that he kind of explained to
me without going into detail. Honestly, I think I got the
script maybe a week before, and thatís when I really found
out how it would come about and what was going on with her
and all these things, but yes, very secretive and it makes
sense. I totally appreciated that because if you watch a
show like this, you know all these scripts ... and stuff
like that and with guests that come in and just kind of have
more extreme character that stirs things up, you donít want
to know. With internet and everything, stuff gets out so
easily that they kind of have to do that. They have to be so
secretive about their scripts, and it would have kind of
sucked if people had known like waiting for what was coming.
Moderator The next question is from Jerry Nunn with Windy
J. Nunn I wanted to ask you if you had like a special
connection with this role because being German and things
F. Potente Sorry. I couldnít hear you properly. Is that a
special connection when?
J. Nunn With this part, to play this part being German?
F. Potente Well, I think Anne Frank and the Diary is known
worldwide. Itís probably one of the most famous books ever,
and like every other high school student, I read it in
school. I visited the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam. She was
such a ... in Germany, and so, I knew things, but I kind of
looked at the diary again and I refreshed my memory a little
bit. Itís one of her landmarks of historic people, heroes,
the heroic character I think that when you're a child
J. Nunn It looked really like an emotional part for you. I
was really touched by it.
F. Potente Yes, totally, in many ways other than
J. Nunn Also, before you end the call, can you just talk
about what projects you have coming up because we want to
hear what youíre doing in the future too? I loved you in the
role, but if you get a chance.
F. Potente Well, Iím a series regular on a BBC America show
that just finished its first season called Copper, and we
just got picked up for season two, so that will be six
months of my year next year. So, Iíll be going back to
Canada shooting that, and besides that, Iím a writer. Iím a
published writer. Iím working currently on my finishing,
hopefully soon, my first novel. So, itís a very different
world. So, thatís what Iím doing whenever I donít shoot a
movie or a TV show.
Moderator The next question is from Lena Lamoray with
L. Lamoray I loved seeing you on the show last night and Iím
looking forward to season two of Copper, brilliant work all
F. Potente Cool, yes.
L. Lamoray Can you talk about working with James [Cromwell]
and Jessica [Lange]?
F. Potente Yes. What do you want to know? I would refer to
when I went to work I would tell my husband Iím going to
take some acting lessons now. I think in the beginning, it
was a little bit intimidating. I remember my very first day
of work was only scenes with Jessica and I think I had about
20 pages of lines. So, I was very, very nervous. I didnít
want to mess up.
Generally, she did well, but ... still happens after 60
years on the job, and she was very sweet and kind and very
focused and really embraced working with me and was so great
in the scene that it felt really good. I really felt like we
worked together. We made it happen and really brought
something to the table.
James is just awesome. He is a very curious man, a very
knowledgeable man. He loves to talk with you and talk about
... and Germany and all these things, so I had an awesome
time with the two of them.
L. Lamoray Can you share with us what itís like being on the
set of American Horror Story: Asylum?
F. Potente The set is pretty eerie, which is great for an
actor because we basically we need to step on and the mood
is already created. We say our lines and thatís that. Thatís
definitely half the magic.
They show cool and creepy, even if they're not lit or
anything, the cool statues that they have, thatís all like a
proper staircase and everythingís very solid and well built.
So, you get to really play with everything thatís there. The
first thing that came to my mind when I saw it, I was like
if youíre a Catholic, kind of intimidating and dark and
strict and regal, very impressive.
Moderator Earl Dittman from Wireless and Digital Journal is
E. Dittman I have to say that I talked to Tom a couple of
months ago and he said you were just a great person to work
with. He had the greatest time doing Copper with you. So,
Tom just loves you to death.
I was going to ask you a question. I know that you had
workedóearlier someone today talked to Jimmy Smits with Sons
of Anarchy and I know that you work with Kurt Sutter when
you did The Shield. In a lot of ways, how does Ryanóis Ryan,
in terms of working styles, are they similar, different, how
so? How would you explain it?
F. Potente These are of the two mentioned amazing creators
in general, I have worked with much on the day. ... that
day, they are kind of the masterminds, but when it comes
down to the work that you do on set daily, they're not there
all the time. They're in the background. They probably see
everything that we do but not firsthand on set, especially
He just started this new show, The New Normal, so you can
imagine, this man has three huge shows, Glee also running on
a Paramount lot. So, I ran into him once when I was on my
way to lunch and that was like the only time I really saw
him while I was shooting this. So, you feel their presence
more in the creation than them constantly being there.
E. Dittman Did Ryan say initially why he thought you would
be right for it, what performance he had seen that made him
think about it or was it just your general work overall that
made him think of you for the role?
F. Potente I like to think so. I donít know. If youíre in
America, you're looking kind of for that age, weight, frame.
Youíre looking for someone who potentially has a German-such
accent. This was me and maybe one few other people. So, I
donít know. He would have to answer that question.
Moderator The next question is from Erin Willard with SciFi
E. Willard I wanted to ask you a little bit about that final
scene that you were in in the first episode that we saw last
night. Did it take a lot of coordination? Did you get beat
up very much because wow, you kind of hit the ground there?
F. Potente To be really honest with you, you mean the fight
scene with James, right?
E. Willard Yes, exactly.
F. Potente I said to my husband because when you watch the
show, the way itís edited so fast and this and that, I donít
know itís probably a minute and a half, and we shot that
sceneóit probably took us like six, seven hours and both
James and I go to the floor a lot. ... people involved.
I remember the next day, I went to her and I was like please
tell me, you have bruises today on you, and James was like
yes, totally. So, itís crazy because we were sweating. It
was awesome, but it was a lot of work, and you do have to
plan these things.
You canít justóheís a tall and strong man. You canít just
grip someone by the hand and push me anywhere. So, some
people did coordinate that. I remember coming onset like
okay, letís do rehearsal and I was like wait a minute. What
do you mean, whatís going on here because it read very
violent in the script?
I was like yes, you know, ... on here and this goes there
and I remember there was this cart thatóyou can barely see
it because itís so fast. They just pushed me into this cart
and itís like scalpels and stuff on it. One time, if we get
tired or never the same, and it fell on top of me and all
these things, but thereís so much adrenaline going in scenes
like this, you get a rush from it like from the motion and
working and I remember the take ... like James spit on me
and stuff, and it was like stuff happens. It was really cool
and at the very end, poor ChloŽ Sevigny was behind that
door, go in there and sees it. It was like half a day of
work, that whole thing for sure.
E. Willard I was going to ask too, was that room actually,
that ChloŽ was in, was that actually just right there? Was
she right there, or was that a separately shot part? It
looks like itís all part of the same scene.
F. Potente We broke it up. I think one shot was just
separated like her, but then it had more to do with the gun
and me shooting him in the leg and the prosthetics for that.
We broke the scene, I think at some point, it was kind of
like the last half of the scene would lead up to me opening
the door and seeing ChloŽ.
E. Willard How many different expressions did you have to
practice to get the one that you got to? The reaction to it
F. Potente When I see ChloŽ?
E. Willard Yes because boy, she was hideous looking.
F. Potente I honestly I didnít see much of her before I
opened the door. I knew she was there. They had to wheel her
in because of the nature of her prosthetics and all that
stuff. She couldnít even walk.
So, I knew she was there , but I kind of avoided seeing her
because I knew it was not going to be pretty and I kind of
saved that so like the ... she was like ..., but it was
horrendous. I was like bluh. In my mind, I was just like
come on. Just let your face move and breathe and just take
in what you see. ... it was kind of gross. ....
Moderator Ernie Estrella with BuzzFocus.com is next.
E. Estrella My question is about the ambiguity of the
characters on the Asylum and maybe what's your take on that
theme because we feel whatever these characters are
introduced that they're thereóthey're put in the asylum
wrongly, and then, as seen in this next episode, we donít
know what to think of the patients I guess ....
F. Potente Iím sorry. Will you repeat the question, please?
I could not understand the first half of it. Iím sorry. The
connection was a little bad.
E. Estrella The ambiguity of the characters, how they come
in as like they're unjustly put into the asylum and then as
we learn in this next episode that maybe thatís not the
case, maybe there is some justification for them being
there. So, what's your take maybe on that switch for the
audience as well as an actor playing out the role?
F. Potente Well, for my character, if Iím understanding
correctly, your question is about characters coming into the
asylum and then not being what we think they are, right?
E. Estrella Correct.
F. Potente Iím sorry. The connection was a little bit, yes,
but thatís what it was what I thought you said. Well, thatís
the fun of it of course. Itís kind of the Hitchcock moment
of is it possible and then you feed the audience in ... so
that you feed them some seemingly plausible reasons, and
within all that madness, anything is possible and this is
what I think is great. You have to keep in mind, this is a
What that does to you invites you into a world which the
texture of it is like a nightmare, and thatís so well done,
and then, weíve already seen glimpses of an alien. Weíve
seen weird creatures in the park and all these things and
thereís a lot of things that seems to move around centuries.
So, anything is really possible, and I think if you keep
watching the show, youíre open to anything, which I think is
beautiful. Thatís what horror or suspense or this kind of
supernatural environment, thatís what you want.
Otherwise, itís a different show, and I donít know who
bloody face is. For the other characters, I donít even know
because we didnít even know, Iíve seen them now, but I
didnít know the scripts before my shows and I donít know the
lines after. I have ideas about it, but I really donít know.
The cool thing is I think the actors donít even know. I knew
the outcome of my character, and obviously, Anne Frank is
proven historically, even though thereís a tiny question
mark, maybe a little window, she did not survive the
concentration camp because she died of typhus or something.
But I love the idea and this is what movies and movie magic
are about that what if. What if she was still around?
She would be my age and what would she be like, and to kind
of indulge in that for a little bit until we learn well, too
bad itís not Anne Frank. Itís someone who took over that
schizophrenic episode. I know actually a lot of women I
guess at the time that did that, but for that moment, to
indulge in the possibly, thatís what movies are made of, any
movie for that matter.
E. Estrella Did you do any personal research on people who
were admitted into asylums or try to take in some kind of
extra study on the asylum-type atmosphere?
F. Potente I actually, many years ago, for a German film
that I did with Tom Tykwer, The Princess and the Warrior, I
actually worked at an insane asylum for two weeks. I have
very vivid memories of that awkward time. On the other hand,
this is set in the 60s, so I think itís very, very
different. They averaged a lot of almost experiments that
the contact with patients were very new at the time and
stuff was very different.
So, Iíve spent quite some time that was very intense many
years back in an institution like that. But on the other
hand, itís always nice to have a fresh take on it. This is
at the end of the day, a normal person that she of course
thinks sheís not insane, but that's the one thing especially
that I remember that truly about insanity is that nobody who
is insane runs around thinking oh my God, Iím really insane.
So, you have to play into that as normal as possible.
Everyone else is insane but the insane person.
Then, you take it from there to be honest, and in this case
especially, the setting thatís already there does a lot. If
the series was just about this one case, I would have to put
a little bit more work into it I think as for mood and all
that kind of stuff, but itís so loaded at episode four
already with all the creepiness and all these things that,
to be honest, I donít have to play into that. Itís already
there anyway. Does that make sense? Iím sorry. That was a
E. Estrella No, that was perfect. Itís a wonderful
two-episode arc, and I hope itís longer or we see you come
back in some sort, but it was a great appearance
F. Potente Yes, I hope so too.
Moderator Curt Wagner with RedEye is next.
C. Wagner Run Lola Run still one of my favorite movies of
all time. I wanted to ask youóthis show is very creepy and
weird and scary. I was wondering what kind of things creep
F. Potente I used to be very afraid of flying, which sounds
like ... now, but it would creep me out and make me very
tense and very uncomfortable to theóphysical ... and the
sweating or even crying, and I was very, very scared of
dying and all that stuff, but Iím not anymore because now
Iím traveling with a small child and I really realize that
certain fears, I like the luxury. They need to be indulged
in order to exist, so to be honest with you, these days I
donít have much time to indulge in any kind of fears and
stuff like that, but I'm not very good with watching scary
movies, horror movies, all that kind of stuff for that
matter. Iíve certainly seen, for example, The Exorcist, the
classic, but I donít know. I'm not very good with watching
that kind of stuff.
C. Wagner Have you seen any of American Horror Story?
F. Potente Yes, of course. Iíve seen season one and I can do
that, but even just a title sequence from season one, I
remember was soóI donít even know what the word for that is.
Itís really ... kind of a mix between you are almost
repulsed by the music. Thereís something about it thatís
like really ugh, and now, weíre four episodes in and we
still like TiVo everything, but normally the stuff that we
TiVo, we would like fast forward over the title sequence,
but we donít do it with this one. We always watch it because
it sets the tone.
If you commit yourself to watching something like this, you
want to be creeped out. I saw some stuff online where people
are like this is so gross. Itís so creepy, and Iím like,
what do you think youíre watching. This is not a cooking
show or something, a book club.
You watch this becauseópeople watch this because itís like
this weird and ... naughty feeling of Iím watching these
sick things and there's sick stuff on this show, but people
are intrigued and I think they feel bad at the same time, I
canít believe Iím watching this, the scene ofÖand puking. Oh
my God, people went crazy online about that scene. What a
great scene that is. People were almost offended, but I
think that feeling comes from itís almost like a weird
feeling of I canít believe I just watched that and I have to
watch. I canít look away. Thatís what this plays into, what
makes this great attraction of it too I think.
C. Wagner Then, can you talk a little bit about working with
James Cromwell and with Jessica Lange and what that was
F. Potente James Cromwell is awesome. Heís very hardworking.
He always knew his lines and heís very responsible like
maybe thatís the wrong word, but when you work with him, he
always .... He always made sure the other person is okay.
He thinks about the scenes a lot and what makes sense how to
shoot them and all these things. Heís very involved in that,
and heís very personal. He loves to talk about theater and
books he reads.
He recommended museums to me and all these things, which is
delightful. Of course, itís very nice. You feel very welcome
when someone especially on the ... likes to be your friend
for the time being, while you work, very nice.
C. Wagner How about Jessica Lange? How was that? How was
F. Potente Sheís amazing. She is very, very focused.
Different, more quiet from my experience. I did see her joke
around with people and stuff, but overall, she seemed very
focused and doesnít become ... so much.
She was very sweet. After my first day of shooting, I was
very nervous. I had like a lot of lines that I felt like she
was very protective of me, like when there was noise and
people werenít focused like she would ask them to be quiet
kind of on my behalf because she knew, she could feel that I
was nervous and I thought that was really sweet and really
nice of her and I really enjoyed working with her. I really
felt like she was good with eye contact and stuff like that.
She's not like letting you hang there.
C. Wagner This is a little off topic, but I was dying to
hear. What do you hope happens with your character in Copper
for season two?
F. Potente I hope that I get a little bit more stuff to do
to be honest. It was a little bit more stuff, but I donít
know where that went, maybe it didnít make sense in the
overall storyline or morale of the hero. Iím not really
Sheís such a fun character being this brothel owner at the
time, not having so many boundaries. So, I would love to
explore that a little bit more and have her be like more of
an active part in whatís going on in the menís world, like
in the tough business and all these things. There was one
episode where she killed someone. She was like cutthroat and
this side, I would like to see a little bit more.
Moderator Michael Gallagher with StayFamous.net is next.
M. Gallagher So, the show is called American Horror Story
obviously. For you as an international actress, what do you
think makes it particularly American?
F. Potente That's an interesting question. What makes it be
American? Well, the simplest answer is that they root it in
America. The first season was an old haunted house in Los
Angeles with this American family that lived there. This is
an institution on the East Coast in America.
Then, itís just a great choice of title or something. It
personalizes the experience a little bit. Itís not just any
horror story. Itís an American horror story. I think itís
more likeóI think it has much more to do with psychology of
It makes this whole thing something thatís eerie and what
the show is, like nightmare-y is one thing, but to
personalize and be like itís a very own American horror
story, I donít know. I think it had something to do with
that. I would wonder what Ryan would say to that. I would be
M. Gallagher I was told that the second season will be
coming out in Germany on November 28th. So, how do you think
German audiences will respond to the show?
F. Potente Do you mean American Horror Story?
M. Gallagher Yes.
F. Potente Cool. I didnít know. I would think that theyíve
probably seen season one. Anything horror has its place, I
think, in German movie culture and stuff like that. They
know Jessica Lange and James Cromwell and all that.
I think they will like it. I would hope so. I donít think
thereís a cultural difference in how they would perceive
this I think. I donít know. I hope they like it.
M. Gallagher How have your friends and family responded to
the show? Have they seen it at all, the first season or have
they had a sneak peak at your scenes?
F. Potente Iím sorry. Say that again. I couldnít understand
M. Gallagher How have your family and friends responded to
the season or have they had a chance to see the scenes that
youíve been in at all?
F. Potente I had a fewóin Germany, obviously, they havenít
seen it. People were very excited that I was on the show. A
lot of people that I know watch it and I got a lot of stuff
online like whatís the ....
I think people are generally excited, and this includes me.
If you happen as an actor to be on a show that you like
anyway, itís like a special treat. Itís really nice and even
when I watch things that happened with my friends, on a show
that I like anyways, itís always kind of awesome. Youíre
like oh my God, thatísÖ Heís a new girl. Thatís so fun. It
makes it ... special or something.
Moderator Terri Schwartz with Spinoff Online is next.
T. Schwartz I was just curious if you knew the story of why
Ryan decided to incorporate Anne Frank into American Horror
Story this season? Itís a timely character for the time
period of the show, but why in particular Anne Frank?
F. Potente I have no idea. I think that he wanted to have
aliens and Nazisóand whatís the third thing that he wanted
in the show? I think that the great piece about this that
... created a playground where anythingís possible so why
not bring back Anne Frank and have people believe or not for
a second that it is her.
I think we talked a little bit before, but I think itís fun
in this medium that we have like ..., you can create
anything out of nothing. The stronger the environment around
it is, the more you can do with it. The pure thought, like
what would Anne Frank be like if she was alive. If she had
survived, what's the story, whatís driving her? What would
she be like as a person amongst aliens and insanity and all
Itís a very tensing thought, but why it had to be Anne
Frank, I have no idea. I think maybe something that he was
interested in personally and thought why not. What if she
came back and she was the one pointing at ďArdenĒ saying he
was a Nazi? Heís not messing around. It couldnít be anybody.
It had to be Anne Frank.
T. Schwartz Itís a really fun question. They sort of give it
away in the name of the episode, but it was really fun and
Iím sure that it was fun for you to get to at least for a
little while portray someone who could be this ... figure.
Iím curious do you know if youíre going to, well, I'm sure
you know, are you going to be back after these two episodes?
Will we see you again this season?
F. Potente Iím not sure. You can never be sure. I hope so.
Weíll see about that. I canít say that at this point.
T. Schwartz Thatís fair. That's intriguing. How much do you
think the revelation at the end of the second episode about
Anne being right about ďArdenĒ will affect the rest of the
F. Potente That's going to be interesting. Heís obviously
protected by the Monsignor and other people. So, I have no
idea where this is going to go. I think JamesÖ So, we just
got the confirmation that he is a Nazi, and heís already
involved in so much horrible stuff. So, I have no idea. Itís
going to be very interesting what they do with that.
Moderator Amber Garrett with Wetpaint Entertainment is next.
A. Garrett Well, actually, I think most of the other callers
have asked my questions. I was going to ask how resolved to
your storyline is following next weekís episode, and it
sounds like you donít know. But Ió
F. Potente Well, I think youíve seen the second episode. She
got a lobotomy and Anne Frank is gone. So, thatís that. To
me, itís ... lobotomy, itís potentially interesting in the
setting too, but at this point, I have no idea. Itís kind of
sad. When I read the review, I was like oh no.
I kind of thought of meóI kind of wished for a second ...
only with the first ... theyíll think maybe it is Anne
Frank. Let her linger a little longer and be Anne Frank. I
kind of liked that idea. Itís like with a lot of historic
figures, you sometime think like what if they werenít dead.
... mixed about this remote island where JFK hangs out and
all these people that are gone, like what would they be like
now? If you put them into new historic context, how would
that work? Itís a very intriguing thing to think about.
A. Garrett My last question is what was the biggest
challenge for you? What was the most challenging scene I
guess to be more specific?
F. Potente Probably my first day with Jessica in a way
because I had so many lines. I really just wanted to be
good. I wanted to earn her respect. I just wanted toóI was
starting with all these lines and itís always the same. ...
anyway lines are lines.
The magic is in between the lines. You want to say the lines
right, but you want to get to the point where you can play
with the scene partner and you just want to go beyond that
and it worked for me. We had a great day, but I didnít know
her, so I was a little bit afraid. Physically, the whole
stuff with James was demanding. We had this huge fight scene
for hours and hours and hours. Itís so little in the
episode, but man, we were like beating each other up for
like five, six hours. So, it was strenuous.
It was fun too, but you have to be very focused with these
scenes. You canít just push each other around. Heís not ....
Heís very tall, so and the same goes for me. Heís strong. He
canít just toss me around like that.
So, we were trying to be very focused about it, but at the
same time wanted to be really raw and dangerous. So, I think
those two things were very demanding, but I remember now the
second episode, I think Iím like crying and screaming almost
every scene. So, that always falls beyond what we can
You do your lines at home. You're trying to imagine what the
scene is going to be like and itís always the reality on the
day. Itís always a little bit more than you can imagine.
Moderator The final question is from Earl Dittman with
Wireless and Digital Journal.
E. Dittman I have to say they answered all my questions too
I guess, but I guess more than anything else, itís been easy
for you to move from film to television and back and forth.
Do you have a preference, and also, how do you choose your
projects? Do you have a criteria or a certain set of rules
before you take on a role?
F. Potente Thatís a good question. To be honest, television
is so, especially in America, which is my only television
experience really, is so elaborate these days. Thereís not
so much of a difference in the process like when youíre
really at work, when you're on the set, and especially with
American Horror Story, they blended really well and they
have so many like remote cranes, like all the whole nine
yards and they play with it. They have all the toys and they
play with it.
The directors are really good. They really work with you.
So, I donít reallyóI'm not really on the set thinking oh my
God, this is television. Itís very different. Something like
the Bourne Identity even to be honest with you. So, I donít
think thereís so much of a difference. You get all the film
actors, movie stars are doing TV and I donít know. It
doesnít really feel so much like that different, and well,
choosing projects is really like almost like a big buffet.
Iím not going to lie. The buffet was maybe a little bit
bigger a couple of years ago.
... there are not that many movies anymore it seems or there
are not that many parts for all of us out there in movie
land. A lot of stuff happens with TV now. So, this, for
example, this was a no-brainer for me.
I loved the first season, and itís always such a treat to be
part of something that you know you like anyway. It was
really like sure. There are a couple of shows that I watch
where Iím like I wouldnít think twice.
It has less to do with the acting job itself. Itís more like
exciting to be part of something that you like anyway. Itís
like yes, youíre kind of like a fan. I remember it was very
much like that when I worked on The Shield years ago. I
loved that show.
E. Dittman So did I.
F. Potente When I worked with them, I would hang out on set
when I wasnít even working. I would call my colleagues by
the characterís name. I was in heaven. It was like
Christmas. I would take pictures with them.
So, itís like a different kind of thing. So, thatís really
like being lucky, I think if you get a job like that, and
otherwise, of course, you always hope for something that you
can sink your teeth into or maybe thereís a director whose
work you like anyway or it could be an actor where you're
like oh my God, I could work with this person. Sure, Iíll do
it. There are so many reasons out there, and for me, itís
about limiting now because I am a regular on a show that
shoots six months out of the year so I'm a little bit
limited time wise anyway, so yes.
E. Dittman Ryan has said now with American Horror Story that
itís going to be an anthology with a recurring cast. So,
even if you arenít on this year, maybe you'll be back next
year as a different character because he wants to keep using
the same ....
F. Potente ....
E. Dittman Thatís what he said, that he wants to do each
year with the series. So, weíll see. If nothing else, weíll
see you in a different way hopefully. Letís keep our fingers
crossed, but we do get you in Copper.
F. Potente That would be awesome.
E. Dittman Yes, wouldnít it? But we've got you in Copper
F. Potente That would be awesome.
