Actor Denis O'Hare (American Horror Story, This Is Us) discusses the "tough" job of preparing for the role of Edgar Allan Poe: "There's so much information about him, and in a way you have to filter out all of the biases you have about who you think he is and get to who the man really was." The man he discovered was emotionally intense, brilliant and creative.
