Jessica Lange has attained a certain amount of fame over a long acting career, most recently earning an Emmy for her performance as Constance on the first season of “American Horror Story.”
One of the episodic series’ only returning cast members for season two of “Asylum,” Lange could have just as easily ended up as a mime artist, as she noted, in an interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
Before her breakout role in the 1976 remake of “King Kong,” the Emmy-winning actress studied mime while living in Paris.
"How many hours a day would you be studying mime in Paris?" the late night talk show host asked. "Were you trapped in a box?"
Lange quickly steered the interview back on track, asserting that miming wasn’t how he was picturing it. In this writer's opinion, a Jessica Lange mime performance would have been quite the draw, as that type of work differs greatly from the types of acting she does for “American Horror Story.”
Throughout her acting career, Lange has been nominated for 63 awards and won 34 of them, reports IMDB. With two Oscars, five Golden Globes and two Emmys among many others, it seems that miming wasn’t the right path for Lange.
