Stevie Nicks will appear in Episode 10 and may appear in a second episode of the hit FX witch series.
Stevie Nicks will kick off the second half of American Horror Story: Coven, when the hit FX series returns from winter hiatus on Wednesday, January 8. Stevie will sing, act, and have spoken dialogue in Episode 10, according to the show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy.
Although Stevie has revealed in past interviews that she has no interest in becoming an actress, she has warmed up to the idea of playing herself in TV shows. In 2011, she had a brief role in NBC’s sitcom Up All Night, and in 2001, she appeared in a skit on Showtime’s The Chris Isaak Show. In each of these episodes, Stevie appeared as herself in somewhat comical roles. Her upcoming appearance on Coven will have more of serious tone, as she teams up with Misty Day (played by Lily Rabe), the swamp witch who is infatuated with her. Stevie may appear in a second episode, which Ryan Murphy hinted at in his regular Entertainment Weekly recaps, “because she is so good.”
Stevie Nicks, as a spiritual influence to the plot, is clearly contributing to the show’s great appeal and growing audience. American Horror Story is currently enjoying its highest viewer ratings to date, reaching more than 7.7 million people since premiering on the FX network in 2011. Two more episodes will air before the show takes a month break for the holidays. The show will conclude its third season on January 29, 2014.
