Featured on “American Horror Story: Freakshow,” Twisty the Clown might very well earn the title of scariest clown of all time. Yet a new interview with the man behind the “AHS” killer mask is letting people see that this frightening jokester has some talented acting chops up his colorful sleeve. Actor John Carroll Lynch was initially hesitant to take on the creepy role, but was apparently up for the challenge on the “AHS” set.
As many fans of the ongoing “American Horror Story” can attest, one of the scariest parts of this show’s “Freakshow” season is Twisty the Clown. This silent killer says virtually nothing, has a half-lidded mask that seems to cover an absence of a mouth, and is clearly seen brutally slaying his innocent victims without rhyme or reason.
