Score one for creepy women everywhere!
Frances Conroy is heading back to FX's American Horror Story, (source: Hollywood Reporter) which begins its second season soon. Ryan Murphy, the series co-creator, tweeted that the actress will play "the ultimate angel" in the season, which is a reboot (kind of). This season is entitled American Horror Story: Asylum. Coincidentally, it is set in an asylum!
"Thrilled to announce Emmy nominee Frances Conroy is returning to AHS," said Myurph. "Devils and angels this year...Frannie plays the ultimate angel."
Conroy is nominated for an Emmy for her role last season as Moira O'Hara, a ghost trapped in the Los Angeles mansion during the show's first season. Conroy had hopped to be brought back.
"It would be dark, but it would be great," she said recently. "It would be so interesting to jump into another world if they put me on for an episode."
This is the fifth time she has been nominated for an Emmy. She will be squaring off against Jessica Lange, her Horror Story co-star who also is coming back for a second season.
Other cast members include Emmy nominee Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Zachary Quinto, James Cromwell and Joseph Fiennes.
