“I don’t know. It was not my favourite.”
Although Fiona Goode is regarded as Jessica Lange’s most iconic American Horror Story character, spawning meme after meme for her legendary quotes, the actress says she “didn’t particularly like” Coven.
In an interview with Gold Derby, Jessica weighed in on the debate with her own ranking of the first four seasons of the show, placing Asylum first, Freakshow in second, Murder House in third and Coven last.
“It’s funny actually, I was stunned that year to get the Emmy for that part,” she admitted. “I mean, the part was very well written, but I didn’t particularly like the whole set up of the season and the story that we were telling.
“I don’t know. It was not my favourite. My very favourite just from my experience of doing it was Freak Show, although I think that Asylum was the better season. But I loved Freak Show. That’s exactly how I would rate them.”
Despite returning as her first American Horror Story character Constance Langdon in the most recent season, Apocalypse, Jessica admitted that she hasn’t seen it, so is unable to include it in her ranking.
Do you agree with her choices? We recently ranked all eight seasons of American Horror Story, and also ranked all of Jessica Lange’s characters in the show. Spoiler alert: We don’t agree with what Jessica said.
