Sarah Paulson returns to the small screens with “Ratchad”, a show created and produced past Ryan Murphy. The actress has become his frequent collaborator with the producer since they performed together in the first season of the anthology series, “American horror story”(AHS).
From there, the interpreter has joined Murphy, four other projects in addition to the rest of the AHS seasons. According to an interview, the actress gave in Hollywood Reporter, many have questioned this decision, and why not try to cooperate with someone else.
‘Many ask me:’Why do not you go with someone else?‘And it’s like,’ Yes someone else called with so many interesting opportunities that Ryan continues to introduce me, the would do, but I keep coming back because the material is undoubtedly a rich and real opportunity to sink my teeth into something, ”Paulson explained to the publication.
What has caught his attention the most is that Murphy has focused many of his stories on women, and whose characters have always been so well created, that it seems as if they could exist.
“[Ryan] usually write stories for women who are at the center of the story. And all these women are properly defined and multidimensional And you do not always understand Where each character has a real form and a real life. How can a person get away with it? It’s hard to do, ”Paulson stressed.
Again, Paulson had to play another complex character: the nurse Mildred Ratched. The new Netflix series tells the original story of this character who first appeared in Ken Kesey’s work, Someone is flying over cucos nidus.
This character first appeared in 1962, the year of the publication of the work. AND appeared on screen for the first time in the film starring Jack Nicholson, “Caught Without a Way Out.”.
Despite these appearances, little is known about Mildred, so the new Netflix show opened up the possibility of going deeper into her and going to the final consequences.
Very little is known about Mildred Ratched in the film. So everything was open to interpretation and everything was on the table and how it was Ryan, he went to very extreme places. And I was very grateful for that, because it meant that I had a lot of space to move where I did not have to follow a certain way of interpreting it, “Paulson explained to THR.
Paulson also appreciates knowing the nurse’s fate, as she was able to analyze the steps that led her to it in a more personal way and in a way live them.
“It was very interesting to get an end in sight, to know where it ends. And kind of rewind at the speed of deformation up to a time when he was in his developmental stage as a persona ”, he expressed.
But despite this discovery in his character, Paulson was at first not so convinced that she wanted to play him.
“I have to say that when Ryan Murphy asked me if I wanted to do it, I thought it was the craziest thing in the world. Louise Fletcher won an Oscar for her portrayal of Ratched. It seemed to me [aceptar este nuevo papel] it was something really absurd “, he admitted to the news agency EFE.
“Ratchad”, see premieres through the streaming platform this Friday 18 September. Judy Davis, Sharon Stone, Cynthia Nixon, Jon Jon Briones and Finn Wittrock they are also in the roles.
