HOLLYWOOD—Oscar and Emmy winning actress Kathy Bates has wrapped her second season in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s darkly tantalizing anthology series “American Horror Story,” first as the immortal Delphine LaLaurie in the third season, titled “Coven,” and now in “Freak Show,” as bearded lady Ethel in a circus act who is quite mortal, as fans of the series recently discovered.

Of course, the one predictable aspect of FX’s “American Horror Story” is its unpredictability, so who’s to say whether Ethel will remain six feet under. “American Horror Story: Freak Show” airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on FX.

The Memphis-born actress recently spoke by phone about working again with Murphy and Falchuk as well as the ensemble cast (including pals Jessica Lange and Angela Bassett), playing another unforgettable character and what’s ahead.
