OH, THAT GUY!

DNA PROFILE

DNA: You’ve said, “If something scares you, you have to do it.” What were you specifically talking about?

Denis O’Hare: I was talking about Ryan Murphy [Executive Producer] offering me the part of drag queen Liz Taylor in Hotel, season 5 of American Horror Story because it just wasn’t a part I felt equipped to play. Nor was it one I’d ever imagined myself playing. I was like, oh God, I don’t want to do that! But that lasted for all of five seconds and I said sure, absolutely, I’ll do it.

Years and years ago, in Chicago, I was offered a play about the Austrian painter Egon Schiele. I turned it down, mostly because he’s nude in a lot of the play and I didn’t really like his art – I still don’t like his art – and the play was very scatological and explicit. I’ve felt like a coward since then. I was 23, and ever since I’ve said to myself that the next time something comes up that scares me I’m going to do it. That’s what that quote means to me.
