Lara Winters is one of the most interesting characters in the American Horror Story universe (which says a whole lot considering we’ve got conjoined twins and murderous ghosts). There’s no one who can tackle her complexities like Sarah Paulson, but even Paulson was disappointed with how Winters was portrayed in Season 6.

You may remember Winters from Asylum, when she was locked up inside of Briarcliff Mental Institution for trying to solve the mystery of the killer Bloody Face. She returned, years older, in Roanoke. Though Paulson loves playing the character, she was actually pretty disappointed with Winters’ return to the series. In a recent interview with GoldDerby, Paulson admitted that she was upset that we’ve never gotten to see Lana Winters’ home life. There’s so much of her character that remains unexplored.

Unfortunately, though they may have talked about it during Season 2, Lana’s part in Season 6 was rather small.

But, there was one thing Paulson was looking forward to doing that just didn’t happen: She wanted to walk around.

Well, there’s always next season for more walking. AHS is no stranger to surprises, and if Lana Winters’ return was a major shock in Season 6, who’s to say she wont pop back up in Season 7. Sarah Paulson has been tight-lipped about her role, but Season 7 is rumored to be set during the 2016 presidential race. What better place for a reporter?
