The 'Nashville' actress reveals she's actually been talking about joining the cast for the current installment, 'Coven'.
Despite currently headlining another TV series, "Nashville" on ABC, Connie Britton does not cut all ties with "American Horror Story", which helped her earn a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards. The actress has opened up that she hopes to be back to the Ryan Murphy-created series.
"I hope so," she tells Rolling Stone when asked about her possible return to the FX anthology series. She even reveals that she is willing to join the cast this season if possible, saying, "I've actually have been talking to them this season, because they're down in New Orleans and I'm in Nashville. I said, 'Okay, let's see if we can try to figure this out.' "
She adds with a laugh, "I'm like, 'I'll put that [witch hat] on and jump on a plane and go to New Orleans,' " referring to the witch storyline of the third installment. "Yes, I would do that. As long as we can figure it out with both productions, I'm in. I hope it happens."
Most original stars of "AHS" have returned for the second or third season of the show. Jessica Lange, who won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie for her role in the first season, even landed a role in both "Asylum" and "Coven".
She, however, recently hinted that she would leave the horror series after a fourth season. "I am coming to the end of acting," she told Los Angeles Times in October. "I have a list: another stage production, maybe one or two more movies, one more season of 'American Horror Story' ... and then that is it for me. Because I think that's enough. I want to go out with a bang ... or should I say, a scare?"
