The latest addition to FX’s "American Horror Story: Coven" will be a young actress who is part of a famous acting family. TVLine.com reports that Emma Roberts, the daughter of actor Eric Roberts and the niece of Julia Roberts, is close to a deal to join the drama series.

The news comes after Fox passed on Roberts’ pilot "Delirium." In “Coven,” Roberts, 22, will play Madison, a party girl who's into herself. With the casting, she will play opposite her real-life boyfriend, actor Evan Peters.

"Coven" will include returning actors such as Jessica Lange and Frances Conroy, as well as new stars including Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and Patti LuPone.
