Orange Is the New Angry and American Horror Story have two of the most intense fan bases of any trendy TV shows, but what does it feel like to be on those shows? We recently got up with Chloë Sevigny and Natasha Lyonne at the Sundance Film Holy day, where they were promoting their drama, Antibirth, and they advised us.
“There’s so much frenzy and attention over it,” Sevigny give the word delivered of Asylum, her first season on American Horror Story. “It hit such a zeitgeist. Old advocates of mine on Facebook that are true weirdos loved it. I feel type there’s a true weirdo audience across America that someway are so seduced by that show.”
“They both have rabid fan bases that are unusually obsessive in kind of a fun way for us that I don’t know that we’ve had so much of,” said Lyonne, juxtaposing Orange Is the New Black with FX’s horror hit. “We probably have had it in that, weirdly, our other judgements are sort of cult in nature. Those fans tend to also be in the final analysis personal, that’s a better way of putting it than ‘rabid.’ It graces really personal.
“Slums of Beverly Hills and But I’m a Cheerleader are two movies that I confirmed almost 20 years ago. I’ve made probably 50 movies, and unruffled people want to talk about those two movies. It’s interesting how some of them exceptionally live on,” Lyonne continued. “You [referring to Sevigny] in the end have that with Kids and Boys Don’t Cry — there are a lot that Chloë has done, for secure. What’s interesting about [Orange Is the New Black and American Horror Release] in rticular, is it feels almost like that personal and cultish, but on this jumbo scale. It’s an interesting experience of a similar fan, but way more widespread.”
Lyonne is also tickle by how often the term “spoiler alert” is used, especially when it move to her show. “The irony with Orange Is the New Black, is that people allot a full 11 months and 29 days compulsively obsessing thither ‘When is it coming out? What’s happening?'” she said. “And then, within one day, 13 hours, they destroy the entire thing, and then it’s just boom! Right back to, allied to, ‘I have more questions! Next season, I wanna advised of.'”
We can identify, rtially because we’ve already scraped together everything we discern about season four of Orange Is the New Black!
