Exclusive Interview: Gabourey Sidibe Talks Being A Ruthless Witch On American Horror Story: Coven
This past season of Ryan Murphy’s hit show, American Horror Story had an all-star cast of Witches. Award winning actresses Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson were joined by junior witches, Gabourey Sidibe (Precious) and Emma Roberts among others. Who would be the next Supreme witch was the question of the season and according to Gabourey, everyone wanted that title! Apparently, the shows creator, Ryan Murphy (Glee) kept that secret until the final week of shooting. All of the vicious women would have been worthy of the crown, but in the end they made the right choice. The interesting thing is that Gabourey still hasn’t watched the final episode! Don’t worry Gabby…we’ll fill you in!
I caught up with Gabourey last month during the NAACP Image Award Luncheon. We spoke about the show, shooting herself in the head and what it was like to work with some of the most talented actresses in Hollywood. What’s next for Gabby? She landed a major role on Lee Daniels new television show! Yes, that’s the same director that made her a star in the movie, ‘Precious.’ Congratulations Gabby!
