Six cast members from the eighth installment of FX’s “American Horror Story” — Sarah Paulson, Cody Fern, Frances Conroy, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman and Adina Porter — recently appeared in front of a live audience of TV academy voters, journalists and fans at NeueHouse Hollywood to discuss all things “Apocalypse.” Don’t forget, this cycle of the frightening program will be eligible as a drama series at the 2019 Emmys, not a limited series, because it features returning characters and plot points from both “Coven” and “Murder House.” [pmc-related-link href=”https://www.goldderby.com/article/2019/jennifer-lynch-american-horror-story-apocalypse-video-interview/” type=”SEE” target=”_self”]‘American Horror Story’ director Jennifer Lynch responds to Emmy category switch[/pmc-related-link] Paulson told the crowd about how she was “sad” she had to say goodbye to new character Wilhemina Venable after only three episodes. “I had grown attached to her, and then [all of a sudden] I was going to be playing Cordelia again, whom I loved,” she readily admitted about her “Coven” supreme witch. Paulson added that she “did not know going in that three episodes in it was like, sayonara Wilhemina Venable and hello Cordelia Goode. I didn’t have enough time with her. That’s a very actress-y thing to say, but it’s true.” In all Paulson portrayed three “AHS” characters throughout this crossover season: Wilhemina, Cordelia and Billie Dean Howard (“Murder House”). The Emmy-winning actress (“The People v. O.J. Simpson”) also reminisced about stepping behind the camera for the first time to direct the fan-favorite episode “Return to Murder House” that brought back all of the Season 1 characters, including Jessica Lange as Constance Langdon. “It was totally exhilarating, terrifying and confronting, but oddly enough I’d like to do it again,” Paulson smiled. “What I really had to accept about myself was my perfectionism, my control, all of these things needed to be cast aside when you’re directing.” [pmc-related-link href=”https://www.goldderby.com/video/cody-fern-interview-american-horror-story-apocalypse/” type=”SEE” target=”_blank”]Cody Fern Interview: ‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’[/pmc-related-link] Newcomer Fern revealed how he was surprised to learn that he was actually playing the grown-up anti-Christ character from “American Horror Story: Murder House.” “I didn’t know until two days before that I was playing Michael Langdon,” Fern remarked. “I was pitched a completely different character, who was the good guy coming into the school and was gonna take on Venable and was fighting for everybody. And then they were like, ‘Oh no, they changed the script, you’re Michael Langdon.'” Fern declared that his most emotional scene from “Apocalypse” was Michael’s death in which Lange was “crying and her tears are falling onto my face. I was like, ‘I’m done.'” Grossman announced that her most challenging moment as an actress took place in the cabin near the end of the season. “There was a scene where we find out that we’re going to have to do an identity spell to save the world, and I know that I’m going to have to be mean to [Lourd as Mallory],” she stated. “I love her so much. She’s just been so wonderful to me. She’s one of my favorite people in the whole entire world. That was very fun and special.” [pmc-related-link href=”https://www.goldderby.com/article/2018/american-horror-story-apocalypse-season-8-finale-poll-results-news/” type=”SEE” target=”_self”]‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’ season finale was ‘amazing,’ say 58% of readers: ‘I didn’t want it to end!’ [POLL RESULTS][/pmc-related-link] Lourd got emotional when she announced that “AHS” has “been an incredible journey for me.” She explained, “The first time I ever cried on camera was with these people on ‘Cult,’ and so getting to do this season where I became more of a common character and literally had the world on my shoulders was such an honor yet so terrifying.” Porter confessed that she loves working with Paulson because it makes her a better actress. “I learned from ‘Roanoke’ that I better learn my lines, I better know what my circumstances are, if I’m going to be on the same stage as Sarah Paulson,” she divulged. “If you do your homework, then you get to find out how good you can really be when you’re working against her.

RETURNING to his old stomping ground after 32 years away, actor Lee MacDonald thought it was a wind-up when a guard directed him to the Grange Hill car park. The 50-year-old certainly did not expect to be recognised for playing troubled teenager Zammo in the BBC kids’ soap back in the 1980s. Lee MacDonald will play bus driver Terry, who clashes with Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter So he was delighted to get such a warm welcome when he arrived at the BBC’s studios in Elstree, Herts, ahead of his upcoming appearance in EastEnders. In an exclusive interview, Lee reveals his hope that this could be the start of a big comeback, and how although playing heroin addict Zammo made him famous, it also killed off his career. Lee says: “It was mad. When I drove the car in to Elstree one guy was going, ‘I remember you from years and years ago, your pictures are in the hallway. “I said, ‘Where am I parking the car?’ He said, ‘Just over there, in the Grange Hill car park.’ Lee MacDonald played Zammo McGuire in Grange Hill — a schoolboy who descended into heroin addiction “I thought he was having a joke with me, but it’s what they call it. “It was just surreal going back and walking down the corridor and there’s pictures of me. It was like going back home to go in and do the reading. I just felt at home when I walked in, it was unreal. “The casting rooms, where I read for the script, that’s where our Green Room used to be when I was a child, 30-odd years ago. It was manic being back.” Grange Hill made Lee one of the best-known child stars of his generation. Lee MacDonald says he was starstruck when he met Danny Dyer on EastEnders From 1982 to 1987 he was Sammy “Zammo” McGuire, a chirpy schoolboy who descended into heroin addiction. But afterwards Lee struggled to find work — potential employers feared being associated with drugs because of the soap plot. Despite several cameos on TV, he largely disappeared off the radar. Then last month The Sun revealed that, after a break from primetime television of more than three decades, Lee was off to Walford. Grange Hill’s cast had a Top Five UK hit with a cover of the LaToya Jackson song Just Say No as part of their anti-drugs campaign He will play bus driver Terry, who clashes with Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter, played by Danny Dyer, over a radio competition to win gig tickets. The chance to work with Danny, is a dream come true for Lee. He says: “I love all the EastEnders cast — I watch the show. But if I was going to be in a scene one-to-one, Danny Dyer would have been the one I’d want to be doing the scene with. “I don’t get starstruck because I meet famous people all the time, but he’s one person I really wanted to meet and, golly, he is such a lovely guy. The Grange Hill cast met with anti-drugs campaigner and First Lady of the United States Nancy Reagan “He was so helpful with everything he just put me really at ease. I was so impressed with him, I thought he was brilliant.” His character is down to appear in two upcoming episodes. But Lee, who runs a locksmith business in Wallington, South London, hopes his short-term Enders contract will lead to a full comeback. He says: “This goes to prove that I’ve got to 50 and it’s a new lease of life, and I’m absolutely loving it, I’m so excited. “I bought the locksmiths shop in 2000. Initially I was aiming to get back into doing TV work but then it got quite busy and then I had my son, Harry, in 2008.” [quote credit=”Lee MacDonald”]The chance to work with Danny is a dream come true.[/quote] Lee, who also has a step-daughter, Katie, adds: “When Harry was a baby I was taking him to school and bringing him home. So I’ve got a bit more time now he’s older. “It’s only in the last year really that I thought, ‘Wow I’ve got a bit of free time on my hands.’ “The kids are pretty sorted. They’re in the schools they wanted to get into and they’ve just finished their mocks, so now daddy has the chance to go off and enjoy what he likes doing best.” And that means acting. In 1986, when he was still on Grange Hill, Lee was involved in one of the most hard-hitting and memorable scenes in children’s TV history. Lee MacDonald (right) starred as Samuel ‘Zammo’ Maguire alongside Tim Polley as Steven Banks and Melissa Wilks as Jackie Wright Zammo, who had previously overdosed on heroin in the back room of the amusement arcade where his friend Roland worked, came back to school apparently clean. Then friends caught him trying to hide drugs in a toilet cistern. The gritty storyline was intended to warn children off substance abuse. As part of the show’s anti-drugs campaign the cast had a Top Five UK hit with a cover of the LaToya Jackson song Just Say No. They were invited to America to perform the single at New York’s Yankee Stadium, and were praised by then US First Lady Nancy Reagan — an anti-drugs campaigner who had coined the term “just say no” — on a trip to the White House. The ensuing publicity made Lee a household name and he could not walk down the street without being mobbed. Lee played Sammy ‘Zammo” McGuire’ from 1982 to 1987 He recalls: “It was massive at the time. They had a chat with my parents and said, ‘Look, we’d like Lee to take on this role as a drug addict, a heroin addict’. “I think my parents were unaware of heroin at that time — I certainly was — so they agreed. “We had to go to rehabilitation centres and meet ex-drug addicts and that was quite daunting. That was like, wow, this has really wrecked people’s lives. “I had loads of letters at the time saying, ‘I’m never going to touch drugs again’ and, ‘Zammo’s put me off drugs’ so if for just one of those people it was a deterrent, then job done, really.” Lee MacDonald’s acting career dried up as potential employers didn’t want to be associated with his drugs storyline from Grange Hill After Grange Hill, Lee had minor roles in Birds Of A Feather, The Bill and a version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. But his lucrative work on the side all but dried up. He says: “I was leaving Grange Hill but earning reasonable money doing personal appearances in clubs and places like that. “But then I got a call and they said, ‘We’re not going to use you any more.’ “I was like, ‘What?’ And they said they didn’t want their nightclubs to be associated with a drug addict.” Lee was only 12 when he shot to fame and, while he has only positive things to say about his experience as a child star, he says if he was given the chance again today he would NOT do it. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN BIZARRE” posts_category=”330″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] He says: “Now being famous is all about being famous — a lot of youngsters do the fame for the fame. I was doing it because I was enjoying it and I loved it. “When I finished Grange Hill and it sort of died down a bit there wasn’t an addiction that I needed to get more and more fame, whereas now it tends to be different. Now it’s more of a fame thing and how many followers you’ve got. “I just enjoyed doing it then, going to work, whereas now it’s a 24-hour job. Not only are they acting, but when they come home they’re on the keyboard posting pictures and trying to get more followers, so you’re doing it 24/7. “When I finish and go home I just want to go home and forget about what I’ve done.” [boxout headline=”A HUGE GRANGE OF SKILL” intro=”LEE MacDonald is just one of many Grange Hill alumni to end up working on some of Britain’s biggest TV shows.”]Amanda Mealing, 52, who played Tracy Edwards, went on to be cardiothoracic consultant Connie Beauchamp on BBC1 medical drama Holby City, before reprising the role in sister show Casualty. The telly career of Todd Carty, 55, took off following his four-year stint as Tucker Jenkins in Grange Hill and the spin-off Tucker’s Luck. He became EastEnders stalwart Mark Fowler and then psychopathic copper Gabriel Kent in The Bill. Mark Burdis was Christopher “Stupot” Stewart in Grange Hill. Now 51, he played Gary Rawlings in EastEnders, and had other TV roles in The Bill, A Touch Of Frost and the first feature-length episode of Only Fools And Horses. Sean Maguire was 11 when cast as “Tegs” Ratcliffe in Grange Hill – the part turned out to be his springboard to major roles in EastEnders, Holby City, The Bill, Scott & Bailey and even CSI: NY. Sean, 43, also pursued a career in pop, releasing three albums in the Nineties. Susan Tully spent three years in Grange Hill as stroppy schoolgirl Suzanne Ross. She went on to play Michelle Fowler in EastEnders for a decade, then in the mid-Nineties began to work on the other side of the cameras. Sue, 51, began directing episodes of Enders and other telly series including The Bill and Silent Witness. Her most recent directing credit was for the recent series of hit crime drama Line Of Duty.[/boxout] [bc_video video_id=”5570293023001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Grange Hill – Zammo McGuire played by Lee MacDonald caught with heroin by police”] GOT a story?
