Frances Conroy to Appear on American Horror Story As...

by at . Comments

Frances Conroy is headed in to the Asylum after all.

One of the few cast members from American Horror Story Season 1 who seemingly had not booked a role to appear on the re-imagined FX drama this fall, the actress has signed on for a character quite different from the scary maid she portrayed last fall.

Tweeted Ryan Murphy yesterday:

"Thrilled to announce Emmy nominee Frances Conroy is returning to AHS. Devils and angels this year...Frannie plays the ultimate angel ... A very different role for Frannie this year. Much more powerful...and all-knowing. #feministhorroricon."

Conroy joins Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe and Zachary Quinto as returning AHS players.

Viewers will learn a lot more about their new characters when American Horror Story: Asylum premieres on October 17.

I can't help but think of Ruth Fisher when it comes to Frances Conroy. However, playing Moira last season was outstanding, so I looked forward to her role this season.
