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."
"At one point, Jessica just threw her arm around me and said to Ryan, 'Oh, can't you find something for Sarah to do on the show? She's going to be in town now.' And he said, 'Oh. Yeah. I think I could do that,' " Paulson recalls.
