At the “American Horror Story” PaleyFest panel, actress Jessica Lange, who has been a part of the series for the first four seasons, has announced that she will no longer be participating in the series, Deadline reports.
Lange emphatically stated:
Yes, I’m done…We’ve had a great run here. I mean, I absolutely love doing these four characters, and in all madness, I love the writers and Ryan and the insanity of shooting it.
This news comes as it’s announced that pop megastar Lady Gaga has signed on as the lead role in the fifth season, which is dubbed American Horror Story: Hotel.
This is sad news as Lange was easily one of the most talented and charismatic stars of the show. She always played her roles with grace, complexity, and a strength that often goes unlooked.
