Jessica Lange As Constance Langdon Again
Hollywood actress Jessica Lange will return for the upcoming eighth season of American Horror Story.
The Oscar winner, 69, will be reprising her role as Constance Langdon in FX’s anthology series. The character was last seen taking custody of her neighbors’ satanic offspring in season four, Freak Show.
Jessica Lange will be joined by English actress Dame Joan Collins, who announced her role in April.
American Horror Story will return for its eighth installment, Apocalypse, in September. It is a crossover between the series’ Murder House and Coven seasons.
Sarah Paulson, who also stars in the series, will make her directorial debut in Apocalypse’s sixth episode, which will also mark Lange’s return.
Earlier on Friday, it was announced American Horror Story had been renewed for a 10th season.
Speaking of the upcoming season, Paulson said: “It’s the apocalypse in the truest sense of the word.”
Jessica Lange is widely considered one of the greatest actors of her generation and has won a string of prizes including two Academy Awards, a Tony Award, three Emmy Awards and five Golden Globe Awards.
Speaking in December last year, the The Postman Always Rings Twice star from Cloquet, Minnesota, known for starring in films including Sweet Dreams and Blue Sky, said the best acting roles were now on TV.
Jessica Lange said: “I think nine times out of 10, the better roles are actually on television now. Especially for women but maybe across the board.
“Twenty years ago it was kind of a stigma in the US to do television, you were either a film actor or a television actor.
“Now there’s no border any more (…).”
American Horror Story: Apocalypse will air on September 12 in the US on FX.
