The creator of "American Horror Story" Ryan Murphy has revealed that Stevie Nicks will be joining the cast of "American Horror Story: Coven" later this season.
Murphy revealed the news through his Twitter account.
"Guess who's visiting the Coven? The legendary Stevie Nicks!" The show creator tweeted.
Murphy has previously talked of being a fan of Nicks. In an interview with Entertainment weekly in October, he talked about enjoying working with her on "Glee."
"I have a good relationship with Stevie because of Glee. She is one of the few artists that have come to hang out. She had been writing Lea [Michele] and I regularly since the Cory [Monteith] situation, because she really loved Cory. So she's just a wonderful, wonderful person," Murphy said.
Though she herself has not appeared on "American Horror Story," Nicks's work has been a part of the show. The character Misty is a huge fan of Nicks' music. Murphy spoke about how Nicks was originally reluctant to have her music featured on the show, but eventually agreed.
"When we got to this witch idea, I thought, if you're Misty and you have grown up alone and you don't know any other witches, there's one witch you probably would know and that's Stevie Nicks," Murphy explained. "So I called Stevie Nicks and first I said, 'I want to use you in the show.' But she was very resistant because from the beginning of her career people who are in the Wiccan community had given her a hard time thinking she was a witch and she got a lot of scary fan letters. She didn't like the darkness of that, and I explained to her the part and she's like, 'Aw [expletive], let's just do it. OK, I love it.'"
