American Horror Story Exclusive: Skins Star Britne Oldford Joins Season 2 Cast

Britne Oldford American Horror StoryAmerican Horror Story apparently isn’t done populating the asylum at the center of its upcoming second season.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Britne Oldford, best known for her role as moody, pill-popping Cadie in MTV’s Skins, is joining the FX hit in the recurring role of Alma.

A description of Alma was not made available, but conventional wisdom points to her being one of the patients holed up at the institution for the criminally insane run by Jessica Lange.

Other new faces on tap for Season 2 of the FX hit include Big Love‘s Chloe Sevigny, The Voice‘s Adam Levine, French actress Lizzie Brochere, FlashForward‘s Joseph Fiennes and Oscar nominee James Cromwell, while Lange, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe — who in Season 1 played Constance, Chad, Tate, psychic Billie Dean and doctor’s wife Nora — are all set to return but as different characters.

“Everybody is playing the opposite of what they played last year, Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy recently told TVLine, “which I think is why they’re all so into it.”

    Awe, you got me all excited I thought it was someone from the original Skins series. LeSigh.

  2. Eric says:

    So is it wrong that I am kind of hoping that Adam Levine will get naked this season ala Dylan McDermott?

  3. miri says:

    No it’s not I hope too, and I was hoping one of the original british skin actors

  4. Rob says:

    She is actually kind of a perfect fit.

  5. Aidan says:

    SO HAPPY to read this. She was my favourite part of an other-wise lack luster show. Awesome news.

  6. Amanda says:

    Might want to specify in the headline it’s Skins US we’re talking about. I got all excited for nothing…

  7. Jason Rey says:

    While I originally thought this was someone from the British version, I absolutely loved Britne Oldford. Cassie is one of my favorite characters of all time (from the original UK series), so I was expecting to absolutely despise Cadie. Instead, Oldford’s haunting portrayal of a bipolar teen with those huge eyes and empty stares really won me over. I think she’ll be great here!

    Um.. Who? What about Taissa Farmiga? Super actress who has really been unfairly dealt with this.

    ultra bummer it was us skins…..uk skins women are great..could totally see hannah murray or kaya scodelario on there…though with hannah on game of thrones i’d go with kaya as a better choice.

  10. SIMMs says:

    Love her! Loved Skins US too. It just wasn’t given a chance …

  11. Mark says:

    Gross looking.

  12. Evelyn says:

    looks like she belongs in a horror story.

  13. pecola says:

    She was the best part of an otherwise horrible show (Skins (US)). I’m glad she’s found other work.
