Sarah Paulson’s rise to fame was rather challenging. After starting her acting career straight out of high school, she labored for years before getting the recognition she justifiably so has now. While she may have landed roles on numerous television shows we all know and love, it was her gig on American Horror Story that made her a household name.
After receiving six Emmy nominations, Paulson finally won her first award in 2016 for her role as Marcia Clark on The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.
