watch lady gaga's american horror story trailer
"The designers have been coming out of the woodwork with looks for her."
Lady Gaga has given us a first glimpse of her character in American Horror Story: Hotel - and she looks like a force to be reckoned with. In a teaser clip for the TV series tweeted by the singer-turned-actress last night, a hand wearing an incredibly opulent silver glove is seen ringing the bell at a hotel reception desk before tapping her talon-like nails on the counter ominously. It's intriguing stuff.
The name of Gaga's American Horror Story: Hotel character has yet to be announced, but the show's co-creator Ryan Murphy shared a few details about her role at Comic-Con over the weekend. "When you work with someone like her, you sign up for something that is larger than life, and I think that's what you want," he told fans at the annual San Diego event. "Part of her role involves fashion. You want Lady Gaga to look a certain way. The designers have been coming out of the woodwork with looks for her." Murphy also revealed that Gaga had asked to play an "evil" character in the show - and confirmed that he'd granted her wish.
Murphy hasn't given away much of the show's storyline either, but he did suggest recently that Gaga's character could find herself in a love triangle with two male characters played by Matt Bomer and Finn Wittrock. Whatever the premise, Gaga certainly has an impressive roll call of castmates to bounce off: Chloë Sevigny, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson and Cheyenne Jackson have also signed up to appear in American Horror Story: Hotel, which is set to premiere on US cable network FX this October. Expect to see lots more teaser clips in the coming months.
