Broadway and Hollywood actress Frances Conroy has revealed exciting new details about her role on the upcoming third season of the mega-hit FX horror anothology series AMERICAN HORROR STORY, confirming that filming will commence in New Orleans later this year.
The onetime SIX FEET UNDER star stated that the series will start shooting this Summer, set for a Fall premiere. After all, what would Halloween 2013 be without some terrific terror as only American Horror Story can do?
Conroy says, "It's going to start up again in July or August in New Orleans, I'll be part that and will have a fairly substantial part in it."
She will have an expanded role from that of her role of the little-seen Angel Of Death (and inmate) in Season Two, subtitled ASYLUM. "I'll be in 10 of the episodes of what I think will be a 13-part season. That will be interesting to see what's written, the writers are so good and I can't wait to see where it goes."
While Conroy was reluctant to confirm the theme or more specific storyline details about the purportedly witch-themed third season, she did add that, "I know there's been a little bit of teasing, they're trying to keep it all hush hush so there are surprises. I'm interested in seeing what world we'll inhabit."
Conroy joins recently confirmed S3 guest star Kathy Bates, in addition to returning American Horror Story headliner Jessica Lange. Series regulars Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Lily Rabe and Dylan McDermott will also appear on the upcoming season of the series.
