Breaking News: Pepper’s Back Next Week! Until Then, Read Naomi Grossman’s Piece From EW.com On Being Cast, Transformed Into Pepper the Pinhead on American Horror Story Asylum!

When it comes to covering and Q&A about American Horror Story Asylum, I get more questions about Pepper than practically all the other characters combined. Is pinhead on ASHA real?  and Who plays pinhead on AHSA?  but the last month, the top question (more than who is bloody face ) is When is Pepper pinhead coming back?

For the answer on that last one, you can read my re-blog here; I highly recommend this piece that Naomi Grossman wrote herself. Right from the pinhead’s–er, horse’s–that doesn’t sound nice either, let me try one more time. Right from Naomi Grossman’s mouth!

American Horror Story Asylum Releases Official Featurette on Pepper The Pinhead – Watch “Meet Pepper” Now!

“I found out kinda late what I was getting myself into.” -Actress Naomi Grossman

Well, it’s about time – after we  scoured the internet for information on American Horror Story Asylum’s resident Pinhead, Pepper– and the brave actress who plays her– “Inside The Asylum” just released as official featurette! Warning: it’s rather surreal seeing Naomi Grossman in her full-on Pepper makeup and costume, but out of character, chatting away in her pretty, semi-valley Girl voice. Check it out below!

They also show some clips (“RATS!”). It’s funny how, when her character first popped up, I thought the same thing some people on set did – Holy shit, did they somehow find an actual pinhead with a SAG card Then I figured it was CGI. Then  I went looking, and started posting! I’m still amazed at the job they did, and the whole American Horror Story Asylum make-up effects team deserves an Emmy. If anyone we talked to didn’t think they deserved an award, then they haven’t seen this video.

Gabba Gabba HEY!

You know, she is actually kind of cute. Still not leaving her alone with a baby, though.
