Over the course of her career, Jessica Lange has done it all – good girls, bad girls, mad girls, brave girls, scared girls, women who have displayed every emotional shade one can imagine. On American Horror Story: Asylum (FX, Wednesdays, 10/9C), she plays Sister Jude – a character with an unusual past, more unusual present and a potentially harrowing future (though with Ryan Murphy, you can never tell).

On Friday, she spoke with a number of journalists/bloggers about the course Sister Jude has taken over the series’ second season/storyline – as well as how she works and what one of her favorite scenes has been, this season.

AHS S2 Key Art 1

Continuing on its merry, bloody path, FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum has spawned (and that is definitely the right word for it) some very creepy promo art. This nun weeping black tears is the least unsettling of the lot (my favorite is the nun walking through the woods – though the staircase is pretty unsettling, too).
