Paulson not starring in ‘AHS: 1984’

AMERICAN Horror Story (AHS) actress Sarah Paulson is reportedly set to join Evan Peters in taking a break from starring in Ryan Murphy’s anthology series, although she could return with a cameo role.

According to Variety, Sarah “will not appear in a significant role”, although it’s thought she could still have a cameo part.

The report comes after it was confirmed AHS mainstay Evan Peters will be taking a break for the new run of episodes later this year.

The 32-year-old actor had revealed he won’t be involved in the upcoming ninth series of Ryan Murphy’s show, which means it will be the first one he’ll miss in the programme’s long run. He previously said, “No, I’m going to sit a season out.”

The confirmation he is going to skip a series comes after the star admitted he had become “exhausted” and drained by the dark roles he has taken on during the show’s time on air.

He commented last year, “It’s just exhausting. It’s really mentally draining, and you don’t want to go to those places ever in your life.

“And so you have to go there for the scenes, and it ends up integrating it somehow into your life. You’re in traffic and you find yourself screaming and you’re like, What the heck? This isn’t who I am.” – BANG!
