Prepare to get the chills! The very first photo of Lady Gaga as The Countess on ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ is finally here and it’s giving us the creeps! Gaga sure makes for one haunting hotel owner… See the pic here!
Who’s ready to check into American Horror Story: Hotel this fall? While co-creator Ryan Murphy has been teasing a few clues about what to expect, he also revealed the very first still of Lady Gaga, 29, in her haunting role as The Countess on Aug. 28. Let’s just say it’s Gaga like you’ve never seen before!
Lady Gaga is that you? Ryan tweeted a shadowy still of the “Bad Romance” singer in full costume from the first episode. “The Countess is bringing back The Turban in a major way,” Ryan tweeted. Hmm.. is there a reason she’s wearing a turban? Could she be hiding something? (Hey, you’ve got to question everything on AHS.) Either way, one thing’s clear — she sure gives off a spooky vibe!
Her lips are also red in the picture, a contrast to the white she wears. One thing we do know about Gaga’s character is that she drinks the blood of people — but don’t get her confused with a vampire. A bloody Gaga graced the cover of Entertainment Weekly, and Ryan shared that while she drinks blood, there are no “capes and fangs” and it’s more “a form of hemophilia.” Interesting!
The Countess also has quite a few lovers, including Donovan (Matt Bomer) and Tristan (Finn Wittrock) that like her, crave human blood. She will have had a past romance with Ramona (Angela Bassett), who teams up with Donovan to get revenge on her. Judging from the look of The Countess though, they might want to watch out!
AHS: Hotel also stars Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Max Greenfield, Lily Rabe and more. The season will premiere on Oct. 7 on FX.
