Sarah Paulson plays Michael Fassbender's wife in Steve McQueen's 'Twelve Years A Slave', and she has nothing but the highest praises for him.
Paulson was recently interviewed by Vanity Fair, and when asked about working with Fassbender in the film, she said, "He’s really the most spectacular creature. That was a pretty amazing job. I play a very horrible, racist woman, but I think the movie is going to be very powerful."
She adds, "I just looped a little bit of it the other day to re-record some dialogue and it was my first time seeing some of it. It looks incredible. I feel very proud to be a part of it. Steve McQueen is a genius, a really special filmmaker."
Paulson's been at a very busy stage in her career, where's she's juggling multiple film, theater, and promotional commitments. She will be starring in the off-Broadway revival of Talley's Folly, has just wrapped up her arc on American Horror Story, will next be appearing in Twelve Years a Slave, and has a multitude of other projects in development. In addition to Paulson and Fassbender, Twelve Years A Slave also stars Brad Pitt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano, and Paul Giamatti. The film is expected to be in serious contention for the 2013 awards run, so expect to hear Paulson's name many more times in the future.
