Taissa Farmiga Returns To ‘American Horror Story' This Season And More Character Details Are Revealed
American Horror Story: Roanoke returns with a brand new episode tonight, the pivotal chapter that completely changes everything audiences thought this season was about.
And while fans are now more confused and intrigued than ever, co-creator Ryan Murphy is finally spilling more details about this season's cast of characters.
Most exciting of all is the fact that former alumni Taissa Farmiga will make her big AHS return in Roanoke.
Known for her roles as Violet Harmon in season 1's Murder House and Zoe Henson in season 3's Coven, Farmiga's exact character has not yet been revealed.
"Taissa Farmiga is coming back for the first time ever since Coven, in I think a really, really great part and we love her," Murphy said in a recent interview. "We're very excited—she's a part of our world and always will be, and I always wanted her to come back."
However, Murphy did say that her character will appear along with this season's return of Finn Wittrock.
While Wittrock previously played Dandy Mott in season 4's Freak Show, fans already got a connection to that past season in last week's big reveal of Evan Peters' character, the original owner of the Miller house Edward Philip Mott.
It's obvious that Wittrock won't be playing a Mott this time around, but Murphy said that he is playing the "most f-kid up character of all time," a character so crazy that the actor himself didn't even know if he could do it.
But just because these AHS alumni are about to debut their new characters doesn't mean the actors we already saw this season are done. Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates and even Evan Peters will now play different roles for the rest of the season.
The twist was so secretive that not even Paulson and Bates knew they would be taking on new roles when this season started filming.
"Evan Peters in episode six is one of the greatest, most hilarious things Evan has ever done and he loved it," Murphy said. "He's a very big, pivotal part of episode six, playing a completely different character than what we've seen him play."
That's right fans, Violet and Tate will finally be reunited again—well at least the actors will much to our delight.
Speaking about Farmiga's previous role as Supreme in training, Murphy also revealed that we are not done with Gaga's character just yet. Murphy confirmed in a conference call with reporters on Tuesday that Gaga's Roanoke character is the Original Supreme. He also added that her character will make a comeback in a future season that will more heavily "return to Coven."
And while there are still lots of surprises in store for this season, Murphy will not remain silent on what fan's can expect for season 7. The showrunner will announce the theme of next season this spring, although there will be a major twist that we will have to watch to see. The next season will be tied in to Freak Show.
American Horror Story: Roanoke airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
