How Losing a Job Led American Crime Story's Sarah Paulson to Stardom

Talk about a silver lining!

Sarah Paulson had been planning on doing a play in New York City, but when that fell through she found herself being presented with the opportunity of a lifetime.

Suddenly with free time, she accompanied actress Jessica Lange – who had starred with Paulson in The Glass Menagerie on Broadway in 2005 – to a Project Angel Food event in Los Angeles.

"She had just gotten into town to start doing season 1 of American Horror Story, and L.A. is not really her town," says Paulson, who is featured in the current issue of PEOPLE. "She didn't know a ton of people so we were spending a lot of time together."

Also at the event was AHS creator Ryan Murphy, who had previously cast Paulson in a memorable guest-starring role on his FX drama Nip/Tuck.

This is not the first time we've heard that Freak Show would be Jessica Lange's last season of American Horror Story, but it's finally been confirmed by the star herself.

"We've had a great run here," Lange, 65, told the crowd inside the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday for PaleyFest. "I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I've had the opportunity to play ... Forty years of acting and it's never going to get better than this. Yes, I'm done. I loved this season. It was my absolute favorite."
