American Horror Story producer reflects on Stevie Nicks’ visit to the ‘Coven’

Tim Minear, executive producer, American Horror Story: Coven (FX, miniseries)

We had a character in the series who was obsessed with [classic rock icon] Stevie Nicks, and we planned to use a lot of her music in the show. Then, amazingly, Stevie herself became available, though we knew we were going to have only a short window with her. When she found out there was a scene where the witches perform what we termed the “seven wonders,” Stevie told [creator] Ryan Murphy, “I wrote a song called ‘Seven Wonders (with singer-songwriter Sandy Stewart).’ ” What are the odds, right? So now, on the spur of the moment, Ryan came up with a brilliant idea: Have Stevie and the other castmembers shoot a 1980s-style music video teaser with that song for our last episode. We had maybe 24 hours to put together this extremely elaborate sequence. Stevie hadn’t performed the song in ages and wasn’t sure she even remembered all of the words. But she came through like a trouper, and we were able to write it, costume it and shoot this very challenging piece that wound up kind of weirdly brilliant.
