Witchy Rock 'n' Roll Star Headed to 'American Horror Story' People
A famous rock 'n' roll singer who has been bewitching audiences for years -- including making an impact on one of the characters on FX's "American Horror Story: Coven" -- is about to turn up on the show.
People magazine reports that Fleetwood Mac veteran Stevie Nicks will make a guest appearance in an unknown role. Nicks already has a connection to the show, as one character in the current season, Misty Day, played by Lily Rabe, "is quite spellbound with Nicks," the story notes.
"Since the October debut of 'American Horror Story's' third season -- which gives viewers a glimpse at a non-Harry Potter world of witchcraft set in the Big Easy -- Misty has made her Fleetwood Mac fangirl status no secret. 'Doesn't it just penetrate your soul?' she gushed in an earlier episode while listening to the decidedly wand-worthy jam, 'Rhiannon,'" the piece reports.
Nicks, of course, has witchy themes running through much of her own work, with her music copyrighted under the name Welsh Witch Music and one of her most famous songs with Fleetwood Mac, "Rhiannon," being about a Welsh witch, according to song introductions by Nicks. The singer, however, has long denied rumors that she is a witch or has an interest in Wicca.
The guest-starring role was announced by creator Ryan Murphy via Twitter. Murphy, the co-creator of "Glee," featured the Fleetwood Mac album "Rumours" on one of the Fox show's episodes.
