American Horror Story Asylum’s Lily Rabe Talks Sister Mary Eunice And The Upcoming Christmas Episode – “I’ll Never Look At A Christmas Tree The Same Way Again!”

Oooooh, this is a great read! For one thing, if you’re an Ian McShane (or a Deadwood) fan, you’ll practically go into a frenzy like I did when I read about his role in the Christmas episode, “A Very American Horror Story Christmas.” Just kidding. It’s titled (per IMDB) “Unholy Night.”  I try not to have unrealistic expectations in general, but I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that there is no way that a Christmas-themed American Horror Story Asylum episode could be anything less than fucking GOLD.

Here are some of the highlights of the interview (you should still read the interview, I just couldn’t resist including them, they were so awesome):

Rabe: What’s been so fascinating as I’ve been playing possessed Mary Eunice is that it’s not just the devil on the one hand and Sister Mary Eunice on the other. It’s what’s happening between the two.
I think every script I read has something that sends me into a state of panic but that usually makes me want to do it. I can’t actually think of a job where I was relaxed the whole time. I don’t think I would want to do that job.
Ian [McShane] and I had a lot of amazing Christmas things to do together. Sister Mary Eunice has something to do with why his character is wearing that Santa suit. She has a lot of Christmas spirit, that’s for sure…

Vulture: So there will be a Christmas episode of American Horror Story?
Rabe:  Oh yes. Of course, right? That was one of my favorite ones to shoot, actually. Ian and I got to do some really evil things together, and I have to say it was a career highlight. He’s such a wonderful man. We had great stuff in the common room, with all of those background actors, the inmates. I can say Christmas will never be the same for me after shooting that episode!

Check Out The Official American Horror Story Asylum Site For Full Episodes, Clips, And Better Yet, Exclusive Video (FX Networks)

If you start to ‘jones’ for American Horror Story Asylum like I do between episodes (I start getting seriously twitchy when I wake up Thursday) then you can find some temporary solace here. I especially enjoy when they do an “Inside The Asylum” post-show breakdown, with trivia, interviews, and all kinds of cool stuff. Here’s a great reason to bookmark the page and check back regularly: I can tell you these post-show featurettes of each episode were NOT included on the Blu-ray set for Season One. Maybe I’m spoiled because AMC has done it with every Blu-ray set for Breaking Bad. You can find them online (I assume), but I really think if they’re going to put out a Blu-ray set, which sometime put a BIG dent in my entertainment budget if they’re not on sale (example: retail price for the American Horror Story Season One Blu-ray set was at least fifty bucks-if you see it on sale, grab ’em, because Amazon had them on sale for a week or so–then the price rocketed back up without warning). So! Here’s that link:

FX Networks – American Horror Story: Asylum – Full Episodes and Exclusive Video.

A lot of the info goes up here on Horror Boom, but FX does it like clockwork.  If I find more FX links, I’ll put them up in posts.  I’ll definitely give you a heads-up if they post a clip from an upcoming episode.  Oh, and I’ll try not to let Thanksgiving get in the way, but I can’t promise the same for Hitchcock , opening Friday! Enjoy the site, and your evening.
