You read the headline. You know the deal. And if you've been watching this season of "American Horror Story" then you know that this is particularly exiting news.
This morning "American Horror Story" creator Ryan Murphy took to Twitter to drop this latest bit of news:
Guess who's visiting the Coven? The legendary Stevie Nicks!— Ryan Murphy (@MrRPMurphy) November 12, 2013
Now THAT'S a witchy woman!
Murphy has already honored Nicks on "AHS" through the character of Misty Day (Lily Rabe), a necromancer obsessed with Nicks and her music. Murphy explains...
“When we got to this witch idea, I thought, if you’re Misty and you have grown up alone and you don’t know any other witches, there’s one witch you probably would know and that’s Stevie Nicks. So I called Stevie Nicks and first I said, ‘I want to use you in the show.’ But she was very resistant because from the beginning of her career people who are in the Wiccan community had given her a hard time thinking she was a witch and she got a lot of scary fan letters. She didn’t like the darkness of that, and I explained to her the part and she’s like, ‘Aw f—, let’s just do it. OK, I love it.’”
There’s no word yet on when Nicks will appear on the show, or precisely what her role will be. "American Horror Story: Coven" star Lily Rabe had this to say about Nicks:
“If I meet her, I actually think I might die on the spot. I don’t get that crazy about a lot of people. I’m usually pretty cool, calm, and collected. But I don’t know if could behave properly. I love her so much. She’s just a beautiful creature.”
Indeed she is!
