The production of "American Horror Story" Season 4, which is subtitled "Freak Show," has begun in New Orleans. Ryan Murphy, co-creator of "American Horror Story," took to Twitter to reveal the first look of Dot and Bette, the conjoined twins, on their first day on the set. Sarah Paulson is playing the role of conjoined twins and her character[s] is likely to be a performer at a freak show based in Jupiter, Florida.
The photo posted by Ryan has been taken from the back, and thus the two faces of Dot and Bette cannot be seen. It seems to be a hospital set-up, as Bette and Dot are wearing a hospital gown and sitting on a hospital bed. [Check the Pic here].
