Lady Gaga’s American Horror Story character

Entertainment Weekly, among a few other magazines, have been breaking a lot of news this year, from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and now to the small screen with American Horror Story: Hotel. This week’s cover feature is Lady Gaga, who will be taking on the role of The Countess.

The Countess is a glamorous socialite who maintains her youthful good looks by ingesting human blood, but don’t call her a vampire.

I prefer the term “ancient blood virus,”” Murphy says of The Countess’ condition. “It’s really a form of hemophilia, in a way.”

In addition to the blood, it appears The Countess also craves love and sex. She’ll be setting up a love triangle with Donovan (Matt bomer), who has the same craving for blood as The Countess, and male model Tristan (Finn Wittrock).

Lady Gaga’s debut as The Countess when American Horror Story: Hotel premieres on October 7th on FX.
