American Horror Story: Coven adds a new cast member: Emma Roberts. Best known to genre fans as the star of Scream 4, Roberts got her start on Nickelodeon. Not sure which is scarier.
Much like the first two seasons of American Horror Story, creator Ryan Murphy only gives out show details in tiny little morsels, so we don't have any info on who Roberts will play. But let's play the logic game. Traditional witch covens consist of 12 women, right? We already have confirmation that AHS alums Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Taissa Farmiga will be in season three, and other announced actresses are Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe. With Roberts, that makes 10 females for season three. So is it safe to assume we will see at least two more major female roles announced? Probably more, because everyone on the show can't be a witch... or can they?
American Horror Story: Coven returns to FX this October.
