Emma became obsessed with 'The Shining' while doing 'AHS'

Press Trust of India  |  New York 

Actress Emma Roberts says she became obsessed with Stephen King's novel "The Shining" while she was working in the TV series "American Horror Story".

The 26-year-old actress, who is a self-confessed book lover, says she always prepares for every character she portrays after a thorough book reading, reported Elle.Com.



"When I was doing 'American Horror Story', I was reading a lot of Stephen King and became obsessed with 'The Shining'. And then I also read 'Shutter Island'. Books are a really fun way to get yourself in a certain mindset or mood as an actress," says Roberts.

"I always pick out a bookshelf for every character I play. I get around three or five books to have with me while I'm playing a character..."

The "Scream Queens" actress and her friend Karah Preiss have started Belletrist, a book club any avid reader can sign up for.
