Lauren Ambrose Digs into New TV Series--But Still Has Sights Set on ‘Funny Girl’

5 March 2015 8:15 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Most famous for playing Claire Fisher on HBO’s darkly funny Six Feet Under, Lauren Ambrose returns to TV in her first major role -- Debbie in USA’s new murder mystery, Dig -- since the show went off the air in 2005.

Perhaps it was because she was spoiled with the writing on Six Feet Under that she has only done a handful of guest spots in the decade since.

“It was a very idyllic television experience,” Ambrose, 37, says of the HBO series, which was her first major role following a handful of teen comedies. “I was very young so it was like acting boot camp for me. The writing was really good and they were writing to our strengths.”

And it was the script that drew her to two-time Emmy Award winning producer Gideon Raff’s (Homeland) new series.

Exclusive! 'American Horror Story': 7 Things You Never Knew About the Freaky Fashion!

21 January 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Admit it — You've been terrified of American Horror Story's tales, but you've lusted over the fashion.

While FX's anthology series has featured dozens of uniquely horrifying characters over the past four years, there is one thing that has always remained consistent in the critically acclaimed one-and-done series: Ahs' head costume designer Lou Eyrich.

Eyrich has been the fashion force behind nearly all of Ryan Murphy's iconic series. From Popular to Glee, and Nip/Tuck and the upcoming Scream Queens, Eyrich is a costume savant of the small screen world. In fact, the designer has already won an Emmy and four Costume Designer Guild Awards since 2009. Additioanlly, Eyrich is currently nominated again Outstanding Made for Television Movie or Mini Series for American Horror Story: Freak Show at the 17th Annual Cdga's.

Tonight at 10 p.m. on FX, America Horror Story: Freak Show will take their final bow with a jam-packed finale. To help send »

Twisty the Clown + ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Moments That Made Us Piss Our Pants

21 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

The curtain closes tonight for American Horror Story: Freak Show, and we can all agree that this season was pretty messed up. From Twisty the Clown (and his weird Af smile) to Neil Patrick Harris‘ affinity for talking to creepy dolls, the fourth installment of the Ahs series was chock-full of pee-inducing moments.

Ryan Murphy, you outdid yourself. And we all had nightmares because of it.

Before you watch the season finale — and read our recap tomorrow morning — take a stroll through the scariest moments Elsa Mars and her Cabinet of Curiosities brought this season. (You may want to cover your eyes for a few of them.)

Twisty reveals what is behind his smile.

We thought Twisty’s fake smile was terrifying, but the story behind his real mouth was far more gruesome. In episode four, “Edward Mordrake (Part 2),” we learn Twisty was once a lovable freak show clown who made tons of children happy. »
