Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks is officially on board for a guest starring role on American Horror Story: Coven.
After the show’s co-creator, Ryan Murphy, tweeted this week that the “legendary Stevie Nicks” would be visiting the Coven, he tells Entertainment Weekly who she’ll be playing.
“She appears as herself. It’s part of Fiona’s (Jessica Lange) ruse in that Fiona is trying to get the true supreme to reveal herself because she needs to stay alive,” he tells EW, adding, “So she brings Stevie Nicks in as a gift to Misty (Lily Rabe) to prove to her that if she exhibits more power she’ll get that and more.”
The character of Misty considers Nicks to be a great witch, which is the impetus for Murphy using eight of her songs in this season of the show, both solo tracks and as a part of Fleetwood Mac.
Nicks will make her guest appearance in season’s 10th episode, which is scheduled to air in early 2014 after the show returns from a winter break.
Though the singer wanted to appear on the show earlier, but she was busy with Fleetwood Mac’s tour until John McVie was diagnosed with cancer.
“Then she called and said, ‘I’m now available sadly enough. If you wanna use me.’ So I said, ‘Let’s do it!’ So she’s flying in for like two days and doing her scenes,” Murphy said. “I know every person in the show is like, ‘I better be in that goddamn scene!’ It’s funny.”
American Horror Story: Coven airs Wednesday nights at 10pm on FX. Are you excited to see Stevie guest star?
