“The bathing in her blood was the logical next step, you know? After you kill your mother, that’s usually what you do,” jokes Finn Wittrock about his murderous character on “American Horror Story: Freak Show” as we chat to him the Paley Festival red carpet at the Dolby Theatre.
As the series newcomer elaborates, “Frances Conroy is amazing. She is like a legend in her own right, so it was such a joy to just work with her. It was hard to see her go, but you always want to see how well an actor dies. Because a good actor has a good death, and she did.” Watch our entire interview below.
According to Gold Derby’s combined predictions, Wittrock is currently in our #5 spot to win Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor at the Emmys with 10/1 odds. When we inform him of his potential chances, he admits, “Oh wow. It would be such a crazy honor.”
“You know, it’s an honor just to show up on set with these guys and so the fact that it’s gotten this much response sort of blows my mind. I would be very happy. I would be very humble. Because I’m riding on the backs of a lot amazing, talented people,” he concludes.
