Alex Breckenridge could only tell me so much about next week's season finale of American Horror Story. I poked and I prodded, but the actress behind the young version of Moira has been sworn to secrecy.
This is all she could reveal about the 90-minute episode, titled "Afterbirth."
- Her character will make an appearance.
- The family "finally comes together" by season's end. "They stop taking each other for granted."
Breckenridge, of course, portrayed one half of the only ghost on the series who actually ages ("I don't think Moira herself even knows why that is," the actress said), disappearing two weeks ago after Ben Harmon, to quote the elder half of Moira, finally started to see things "as they are."
What was it like to share a role with Frances Conroy?
"It was amazing. I adore her so much," Breckenridge said. "I would get intimidated on set because she's just so good."
Incredibly, the pair didn't plan out their dueling scenes. They didn't work on similar mannerisms or really do anything as a tandem.
"We found our own way through extreme versions of the character," Breckenridge said when asked how she tackled this unique apparition, who helped Ben realize his "perception of reality was skewed," as the star put it.
How will that impact what is sure to be a bizarre, creepy, suspenseful finale? Again, Breckenridge could not say. But tune in ton December 21 for the answer - FX, 10 p.m. - and return to TV Fanatic afterward for my detailed review.
