The creator of American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy, has spoken about Lady Gaga’s character on the upcoming season to Deadline.
When asked if Gaga will be singing, Murphy said: “No. People, keep saying to me, ‘What numbers are they singing, what numbers are they singing,’ and I say there will be no numbers.”The interesting thing is we cast a lot of singers this season but I like that singers, for the most part, are always great actors because they know how to sell a story through song, through a scene. I think that’s why Gaga was excited about it; it’s not something that she’s ever done before. It’s a pure acting part. I think people expect that she’s going to be sitting in a bar in a white silk gown sort of singing songs — she is not.”
“The upcoming season that we’re doing is much more horror-based; it’s much more dark,” he continued “It’s about a theme and an idea that’s very close to my heart that I’ve always wanted to do that’s a little bloodier and grislier I think than anything that we’ve done before; it’s straight horror this year.”
American Horror Story: Hotel begins filming soon for an October premiere.
