The offspring of a true Hollywood legend is joining the cast of FX’s upcoming “American Horror Story”: Lily Rabe, daughter of Jill Clayburgh, has signed on for six episodes, playing the original owner of the haunted house in which the series is primarily set.
According to E! Online, Lily’s character’s story will be told in 1920s-era flashbacks. Sources who work on the show say she’s “fantastically creeptastic” in this new role, and there will be a cool and unexpected reveal regarding her “ungodly connection” to Connie Britton’s character.
The show “revolves around The Harmons, a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish. The all star cast features Dylan McDermott (The Practice) as “Ben Harmon,” a psychiatrist; Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights) as “Vivien Harmon,” Ben’s wife; Taissa Farmiga as “Violet,” the Harmons’ teenage daughter; Jessica Lange (Tootsie, Blue Sky, Grey Gardens) in her first-ever regular series TV role as “Constance,” the Harmons’ neighbor; Evan Peters (One Tree Hill) plays “Tate Langdon,” one of Ben’s patients; and Denis O’Hare (The Good Wife) as “Larry Harvey.” Guest stars for the series include Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under) as the Harmons’ housekeeper; Alexandra Breckenridge (Dirt) as the Harmons’ housekeeper; and Jamie Brewer as Constance’s daughter.”
“American Horror Story” is set to premiere on October 5th on FX and will run Wednesdays at 10 PM ET/PT. In the meantime visit the show’s Facebook page along with “American Horror Story” on FX, where you’ll find some exclusive extras you won’t see anywhere else!
