AceShowbiz - Kim Kardashian feels "super excited" to have joined "American Horror Story". Having managed to secure a slot in the cast ensemble of the long-running TV series earlier this year, the 42-year-old reality TV star is relishing the challenge.
"Kim feels very prepared and super excited to be part of 'American Horror Story'," a source told Entertainment Tonight about Kim's state of mind when it came to her casting.
Kim decided to embrace the challenge of acting after appearing on "Saturday Night Live" in 2021. The insider explained, "She decided to take this on because it's outside of her regular scope and she thinks [co-creator] Ryan Murphy is incredibly talented. Hosting 'SNL' inspired Kim to take this role since it went so well. So far, filming has been great and fun. Kim knows she is capable of so much and is excited for her fans to see that."
In early 2023, Kim revealed that she was taking acting lessons ahead of her appearance on the show. The brunette beauty explained that she had been busily preparing for her upcoming role. Asked if she was taking acting lessons, she told Variety, "I am, of course. It's a challenge. I like to challenge myself."
Kim has enjoyed success in various spheres over the years, and the reality star revealed that she's keen to test her acting skills. She said, "It's really fun to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new and grow. I'm so excited for the experience."
Prior to that, Kim claimed that she doesn't care what people think of her. When asked about her talents and the keys to her success, she explained to Interview Magazine, "I'm like, 'Well, we have a TV show.' But just because we're not singing and dancing and acting on the show doesn't mean that the fame didn't come from that."
"But then, I would write that as a hashtag, not bad for a girl with no talent, because people used to be like, 'Well, what do you do? What's your talent?' And I'm like, 'Didn't know I needed one,' " the daughter of Kris Jenner added.
