Two weeks ago, Franka Potente (Copper) entered the Briar Cliff Manor, claiming to be Anne Frank (yes, That Anne Frank) and that Dr. Arden (played creepily by James Cromwell) was a Nazi war criminal, who performed experiments on young girls. That’s just a sliver of this wild, disturbing and unsettling season of American Horror Story: Asylum has in store for viewers.

Potente who is still fondly remembered for her starring role in Run Lola Run, saw more exposure with roles in Blow and the Jason Bourne films. Brief stints on The Shield, House M.D. and Psych opened television to her and she is currently a regular on BBC America’s Copper, which just got picked up for Season 2. Potente is also working on her first fiction novel. We recently spoke briefly with Potente on a conference call about this juicy role and some of the elements about Ahs that make it so compelling. »
