Rejoice, American Horror Story fans! New details on Sarah Paulson's character in the upcoming clown-filled election themed season, titled Cult, were revealed at the 2017 Television Critics Association press tour. Sarah Paulson attended the TCA'S "The Women of American Horror Story" panel with #AmericanHorrorStory co-stars Billie Lourd, Alison Pill, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman and executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall, makeup artist Eryn Krueger Mekash and costume designer Lou Eyrich.
Sarah Paulson Is Married To Alison Pill's Character
We finally have confirmation that Sarah Paulson and Alison Pill will play a couple in Cult. The internet was buzzing earlier this year when on-set footage of Paulson and Pill holding hands leaked. This marks the second LGBT relationship that Sarah Paulson (who is dating actress Holland Taylor in real life) has played on American Horror Story. In Season 2, Paulson played reporter Lana Winters, who was committed to Briarcliff for being in a secret lesbian relationship.
Ally And Ivy Have A Child
It was also revealed at the TCA's that Ally (Paulson) and Ivy (Pill) will have a young Mayfair-Richards. Again, we are taken back to clues that were released earlier, particularly Ryan Murphy's announcement that Twisty the Clown would appear in Season 7. The image Murphy shared was a close-up of Paulson holding a comic book titled Twisty: The Clown Chronicles. It is safe to assume that Ally and Ivy's child is somehow involved, or at least knows about the clown cult creeping around town.
The Couple Own A Butchery
Set pictures that were taken by fans earlier in the year revealed that filming was being done in and outside of a butchery. It is now confirmed that Ally and Ivy Mayfair-Richards own the mysterious butchery on Main. Well, Alison Pill's character poster now makes more sense. Knowing how creepy and crazy this season will be, we are left to wonder whether or not Season 7's Cult will take on the topic of cannibalism!
