Series boss Ryan Murphy announced the casting Friday morning on Twitter.


Breckenridge of course was part of FX’s original Horror Story, playing the younger, um, more libidinal alter ego of Frances Conroy’s housekeeper Moira. She joins a Coven cast that includes fellow Horror Story alumni Jessica Lange, Denis O’Hare, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters and Taissa Farmiga, as well as new blood Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Emma Roberts, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe.

    love her!

  2. brycealexander says:

    Before anyone says it, it’s okay that Evan Peters is the only announced male. Hold the outrage for another comments section, people.

  3. Jordan says:

    Still holding out for Dylan McDermot… even just for one episode!

    • Teag says:

      Same! OT: Hostages looks great.

    • Joey says:

      Sorry but no. His acting was a fair tad better in Asylum than in Murder House, but in that first season….the acting was just so wooden, and when acting opposite someone great like Jessica Lange or Connie Britton, the differences in acting ability were staggering.

  4. Tori says:

    I wonder if she is going to be the” young Ruth” that the show was looking for in regards to Francis Conroy’s character?

  5. DL says:

    Anyone else think in that picture she looks uncannily like Evan Rachel Wood?

  6. Gaara says:

    Yay, I was hoping for this! Love her, just like I love her uncle Michael Weatherly

  7. Sandrine says:

    Still no Zachary Quinto?

  8. Kevin says:

  9. me says:
