Sarah Paulson is sharing one of her dream roles. The 47-year-old Bravo superfan appeared on a recent episode of SiriusXM’s “Andy Cohen Live”, and shared why she’d love to play “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Vicki Gunvalson.
“I would just like to play Vicki. I just wanna play Vicki,” Paulson revealed. “Vicki is a very fascinating person to me.”
In the same interview, Paulson praised her American Crime Story co-star, Beanie Feldstein, for her performance in Broadway’s Funny Girl. Feldstein exited the production early, and Lea Michele will next take on the role of Fanny Brice.
“I saw it twice and I thought that Beanie was remarkable,” Paulson said. She was extraordinary on opening night. I went again in June, right after she had COVID. I went to see her first performance back after she hadn’t been on that stage for over 10 days and hadn’t been singing or anything, and she just blew my mind and was even better.”
Paulson further gushed over Feldstein, calling the 29-year-old actress “one of the great, great new young performers.”
“She’s so young. Sometimes I just look at that little face and I’m just like, ‘You’re just this little, little baby Beanie,'” Paulson said. “I suspect we have not seen the last of her by a great long shot. She’s an extraordinary talent and an even better person, if such a thing is possible.”
