While season 3 of “American Crime Story” is broadcast on CANAL + and available on myCANAL, return to the crazy gallery of characters played by Sarah Paulson.
Chameleon actress Sarah Paulson has a taste for transformation. And viewers can count on Ryan Murphy, with whom she collects collaborations, to never run out of ideas. Whether she embodies a renowned lawyer, a junkie escaped from the eighties or a nurse with morbid desires, the star disappears behind the features of her characters with ease. In Impeachment, third season of American Crime Story, she plays Linda Tripp, a former White House employee behind the Clinton-Lewinsky affair, and once again surprises with her talent. For this occasion, return on his 10 notable metamorphoses.
In the shoes of … Ellen Dolan
Before starting her big adventure with Ryan Murphy on the small screen, Sarah Paulson appeared in The Spirit, released in 2008. This superhero noir film, adapted from the comic strip by Will Eisner, follows the adventures of a masked vigilante back from the dead. The actress, in a look inspired by the world of comics and the cinema of the forties, embodies Dr. Ellen Dolan, the great love of the main hero.
In the shoes of … Bette and Dot Tattler
For her third season of American Horror Story, Freak Show, Sarah Paulson does not play one, but two roles: the Siamese sisters Bette and Dot Tattler, circus beasts of Elsa Mars, played by Jessica Lange. A major challenge since beyond the difficulty of interpreting two very different characters, the actress had to undergo many hours of makeup and play with a latex head.
In the shoes of … Sally McKenna
In the fifth season of American Horror Story, Hotel, Sarah Paulson lends her features to Sally McKenna, a ghost junkie with peroxidized hair and a rock ‘n’ roll look. A colorful new character for the actress, straight out of the eighties.
In the shoes of … Marcia Clark
For the first season of American Crime Story, which focuses on the trial of OJ Simpson, Sarah Paulson signs one of the most important roles of her career. She brings to the screen Marcia Clark, a respected lawyer in the sphere of American justice and wins, for her work, her first Emmy Award for best actress. On the look side, the resemblance between Sarah Paulson’s Marcia Clark and the authentic one is impressive.
In the shoes of … Geraldine Page
With the Feud series, which focuses on the rivalry between two great Hollywood stars, Sarah Paulson also plays an actress of the fifties: Geraldine Page, a minor role – she only appears for one episode – but who does its effect.
In the shoes of … Ratched
Red hair, dress to the nines, Sarah Paulson appears icy and scary in Ratched, Netflix series of her mentor Ryan Murphy. She brings Miloš Forman’s unfriendly nurse character to life in Flight Over a Cuckoo’s Nest.
In the skin of … Alice Macray
Surrounded by a host of actresses, each as talented as the next, Sarah Paulson plays the only fictional character in the series Mrs. America. She plays Alice Macray, a conservative sixties housewife worried about the growing power of feminists. A role – and a look – at odds with the characters she plays in Ryan Murphy’s productions.
In the skin of … Karen, the tuberculous
The name of this character speaks volumes. After a notable absence in the ninth season ofAmerican Horror Story, Sarah Paulson finds the team of the anthology series for season 10 and inherits a new wacky role, that of Karen. On screen, the actress is ugly to the extreme, but also embodies one of the most moving characters in the program.
In the shoes of … Mamie Eisenhower
In the second part of season 10 ofAmerican Horror Story, Sarah Paulson lends her features to a new character who really existed: Granny Eisenhower, former First Lady of the United States and wife of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The actress appears with the famous pearl necklace, signature of this shadowy woman, and her hairstyle faithful to the spirit of the sixties.
In the skin of … Linda Tripp
With Impeachment, third season ofAmerican Crime Story, Sarah Paulson disappears behind the face of Linda Tripp, one of the major personalities of the Clinton-Lewinsky affair. To play this woman, the actress had to wear a fatsuit – a costume with padding to change her build – and prostheses on her face. On screen, the result is stunning.
