The 'Kardashians' star reveals the unconventional inspiration for her villainous 'American Horror Story: Delicate' role, admitting to be inspired by her older sister for a witchy TV role.

AceShowbiz - Kim Kardashian recently delved into the world of acting with her surprising but much-talked-about debut on "American Horror Story: Delicate." In the show, Kardashian plays Siobhan Corbyn, a publicist who's as ambitious as she is mysterious.

The character, with her tactical maneuvers and commanding aura, drew inevitable comparisons to none other than Kim's mother, Kris Jenner. However, Kardashian herself had a different guiding star for portraying Siobhan: her older sister Kourtney Kardashian.

In an insightful conversation with Chloe Sevigny for Variety's "Actors on Actors" series, Kim revealed, "I was really channeling my sister Kourtney and someone that I work with." Despite her original intention, many viewers saw echoes of Kris Jenner in her performance. "And everyone, when it came out, they were like, 'That is Kris Jenner all the way.' And I was like, 'I guess I had that preparation already, but it's not what I was thinking. But I so see it now.' "

The role of Siobhan, a high-powered publicist with a few secrets up her sleeve, provided the perfect blend of reality TV drama and supernatural intrigue that Kardashian could sink her teeth into.

The opportunity came directly from Ryan Murphy, renowned creator of "American Horror Story." Murphy himself approached Kardashian, saying, "I really want to write something for you. Would you consider doing American Horror Story?"


,p> The proposition was irresistible for Kim, a chance to showcase her acting chops outside of her reality TV roots. "Sometimes it just takes that one person to really believe in you and give you that push," she reflected.

The collaboration was fruitful enough that Murphy and Kardashian are now teaming up again for a new series where she will play a high-powered divorce attorney, drawing inspiration from her real-life divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser.

Kim talked excitedly about this new role, "I'm really excited about it. And, again, that confidence that he believes in me to take this project on means so much to me. And it feels so right as a character that I could be a lawyer in real life and play one on TV."

Considering her past experiences with Wasser, who has guided her through two divorces, it will be intriguing to see how much real-life influence she infuses into her character.

This latest step in her career is much more than an acting gig for Kim; it's a testament to her perseverance and versatility. From playing an immortal witch to a seasoned divorce lawyer, Kardashians' Hollywood journey is unfolding in unexpected and fascinating ways.
