Sarah Paulson Shares First Look At New Season Of American Crime Story: Impeachment

Between filming the upcoming 10th season of American Horror Story and starring as nurse Mildred Ratched in Ratched, Sarah Paulson will appear in the third season of another Ryan Murphy show, American Crime Story. Now, she has given fans a sneak peek of the incredible transformation for her character.

The long awaited third season, subtitled Impeachment, will chronicle the impeachment of Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States for charges of perjury and obstruction of justice as a result of the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

She will play Linda Tripp, a White House and Pentagon employee, who was a *major* player in the events which led to the world finding out about the President's sexual encounters with Monica, who at the time was a White House intern.

Linda secretly recorded phone conversations between herself and Monica in which the latter spoke openly about her affair with the President.

During an interview with Jimmy Kimmel in June, Sarah described the transformation process, saying she would be wearing "a lot of prosthetics and body transformational accoutrement" for the role.

Sadly the real Linda Tripp won't be able to see Sarah's transformation because she passed away in April this year.

Sarah also revealed she has spent a lot of time researching for her role. She said: "It was weird, because I had been spending so much time reading all these books and working with a dialect coach, so I was immersed in this. It was a very wild thing and it really did make me sad."

Filming for the third season was meant to begin in the Spring but like many shows production had to be halted due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

This season will be based on a book by Jeffrey Toobin titled A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President.
