!! OMG, a casting director reflects: Margot Robbie almost starred in ‘AHS: Asylum’ !!

Casting director Eric Dawson, who has worked with ‘AHS’ creator Ryan Murphy way back since the late 1990s discussed his memory of Margot Robbie’s audition for ‘American Horror Story: Asylum.’ recently. The casting director says she was clearly such a star, but they didn’t have the right role for her at the time:

“Margot has a lot of ‘it’ factors. That’s the tough thing for casting directors who aren’t in the room [anymore] with actors. Margot is probably one of my favorite auditions of all time, and it was right before she broke out. She was such a star. It was crazy, her star appeal when she walked in the room. Even though she didn’t get that role, that was one of those things as a casting director where you go: This is a star, what do we do with her?”

He explained that it immediately became clear “she was out of our realm of possibility of hiring”
“That’s really the fun part of casting, is seeing the people whose careers are just rising.”

Well, thank god we got us Sarah Paulson in the leading role for that season. Bitch tore! She said GAY RIGHTS and we wouldn’t have changed a thing. Margot found her way without Ryan Murphy’s camp-ification of her, and all landed where it should have.

Not surprising hear that Margot left such an impression, even in her days before fame. ESPECIALLY if she walked into the room wearing the outfit above!
