It’s safe to assume that the characters of American Horror Story: Freak Show are…um…quirky. In this latest exclusive teaser, we meet a contortionist (Is it the same one seen in the trapeze teaser?) who’s not only quite flexible but also boasts an extra leg. Yep, a three-legged contortionist. Only in the weird world of AHS. Watch below.
American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres Oct. 8 on FX and features Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Michael Chiklis, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, and Denis O’Hare.
Shane. Dale. Lori. Merle. Andrea… Need we go on? No character on The Walking Dead is ever safe. That much has been proven. But how would the still-living cast members like to see their characters go if and when their time comes? Well, there’s only one way to find out. Ask them. So I did. Here’s how many of The Walking Dead actors see their final moments on the show.
[NOTE & SPOILER ALERT: Some of these characters have already died in the comic book on which the show is based. A few of the actors may reference that, so if you do not want any clues as to who has died in the comic, then stop reading right now. But also keep in mind that the TV version often changes things dramatically. For instance, Hershel’s beheading at the prison actually happened to a different character in the comic that is still alive and well on the TV show. So things don’t always match up.] Okay, spoiler alert over. Now, let’s find out how the cast would like their various demises to go down. Also note that Norman Reedus kind of cheats on his answer. CHEATER! READ FULL STORY
