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."
