Kim Kardashian lands role in US horror television series American Horror Story | Ents & Arts News


Kim Kardashian is set to star in the upcoming series of popular US television show American Horror Story.

The 42-year-old reality star teased her appearance in the show, co-created by Emmy Award-winning director Ryan Murphy, to her 352m Instagram followers.

She will appear in the 12th season of the horror anthology series alongside Scream Queens actress Emma Roberts, who has appeared in five of the previous seasons.

In a short trailer, the words “Emma Roberts and Kim Kardashian are delicate” were set against a haunting cover of Rock-a-bye Baby.

The role was written “especially for Kim,” Murphy said during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

He described the part as “fun, stylish and ultimately terrifying” for a season that is “unlike anything we have ever done”.
