There’s a lot to be said for looking back before moving forward, and luckily for fans of “American Horror Story”, FX seems to agree with that sentiment because today they’ve released more behind-the-scenes videos for the series that examine the casting process for the show as well as what went into filming Episodes 1.09, “Spooky Little Girl”, and 1.10, “Smoldering Children”.
First, casting director Eric Dawson fills us in on choosing the perfect actors for the Harmons and their merry band of ghosts. Next, cinematographer Michael Goi discusses the “Black Dahlia” episode along with actors Frances Conroy (Moira) and Matt Ross (Charles Montgomery). Lastly, we learn the true story behind Larry (Denis O’Hare)’s burns and get an up close look at a stunt burn.
“American Horror Story”, co-created by former “Nip/Tuck” executive producers and current “Glee” co-creators/executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, revolves around The Harmons, a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish. The all star cast features Dylan McDermott (“The Practice”) as “Ben Harmon,” a psychiatrist; Connie Britton (“Friday Night Lights”) as “Vivien Harmon,” Ben’s wife; Taissa Farmiga as “Violet,” the Harmons’ teenage daughter; Jessica Lange (Tootsie, Blue Sky, Grey Gardens) in her first-ever regular series TV role as “Constance,” the Harmons’ neighbor; Evan Peters (“One Tree Hill”) plays “Tate Langdon,” one of Ben’s patients; and Denis O’Hare (“The Good Wife”) as “Larry Harvey.”
