Character Bio

Constance Langdon photo
Murder House-"I have grieved enough for two lifetimes. Most people would be broken by the deaths of their children, but my nature would not permit such weakness."

Constance was born and raised in Virginia, but moved to Los Angeles to become an actress. After objecting to the nudity that was flooding the film industry at the time, her dreams of becoming an actress fell to the wayside. In 1983, she murdered both her husband, Hugo, and Moira O'Hara (with whom Hugo has cheated with once before) after catching them about to have sex, believing they were having an affair, when in reality, Hugo was trying to rape Moira (who tried to refuse his advances).

She purports to be gentle and goodnatured but is really cunning and rude. She cares very much for her children, even though she sometimes doesn't treat them as well as she should. She also runs a daycare for dogs out of her home. She has stolen Vivien's jewelry and silverware in an attempt to frame Moira. Despite this, it appears that she and Moira are involved in some sort of plot involving Vivien's pregnancy, as she brings over assorted innards of pig for Vivien, claiming the organs are "good" for the baby. She may also have some precognitive ability, for example: she entered the house in the middle of the night and keeps Ben from injury during the Pilot and the toxic cupcakes she delivered for Violet actually ended up making one of the intruders violently ill during the home invasion.

Constance Langdon Quotes

01x12 - Afterbirth Season 1 / Episode 12: - Afterbirth

Constance Langdon: Now... what am I going to do with you?
01x12 - Afterbirth Season 1 / Episode 12: - Afterbirth

Constance Langdon: May I confide something?
Helen: Yeah.
Constance Langdon: Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I was destined for great things. I was gonna be somebody-a person of... significance. A star of the silver screen, I once thought. But my dreams became nightmares. Instead of laurels, funeral wreathes. Instead of glory, bitter disappointment, cruel afflictions. But now I understand, tragedy was preparing me for something greater. Every loss that came before was a lesson. I was being prepared. And now I know for what. This child. A remarkable boy. Destined for greatness! In need of a remarkable mother. Someone forged in the fires of adversity, who can guide him with wisdom. With firmness. With love.
