‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’: Kathy Bates refused to pray to Satan

The eighth season of Ryan Murphy’s anthology series, ‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’, has turned into a gigantic reunion of familiar faces, thanks to the return of many actors who had already participated in previous seasons of the series. This is the case of Kathy Bates, who after saying goodbye to fiction with the sixth season, has returned as the faithful servant of Satan, Ms. Mead. But this faithful follower of Satan was a little problem for Bates, since the actress was not willing to pray to him.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kathy Bates confirmed that, although she enjoyed putting herself in the shoes of Ms. Mead, she was unwilling to pray to Satan himself, even if it was a performance, citing her fight against cancer as one of the reasons that prevented her from worshiping Satan: “But I was very serious about this because I have survived cancer twice and I’m not going to be an asshole about it! It’s bad enough that I have to say ‘Hail Satan’ a couple of times. I know it’s entertainment but so I just didn’t want to “.

Despite this detail, Bates says he liked playing this new character from ‘Apocalypse’, which he described as “murderess”, also stating that “She was very robotic and mechanical and calm, and I think it was pure fervor and rage and all that stuff. But it was really cool to play someone as calm as her.”. Ms. Mead has been full of surprises this season, and Bates herself was surprised at the moment of reading the script and discovering everything that her character was really hiding: “They give you a kind of rough idea and then they give you a script and you go, ‘Oh my God! I didn’t know that was going to happen!'”. Just one episode to the end of the season, we will have to wait to find out if Ms. Mead still hides any more surprises, something that Bates herself says could happen, by ensuring that the end “it’s going to be a real surprise”.
