American Horror Story: See Stevie Nicks on Set With Lily Rabe! (PHOTO)
While we count down the days until "The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks" — aka Episode 10 of American Horror Story: Coven, airing January 8 — we are loving this newly-released photo of the Fleetwood Mac singer herself on Coven's New Orleans set, posing alongside Lily Rabe (Misty Day).
In November co-creator Ryan Murphy teased Stevie's role in the Coven chronology. "She appears as herself. It's part of Fiona's ruse in that Fiona is trying to get the true Supreme to reveal herself because she needs to stay alive," Ryan told Entertainment Weekly. "So she tells Misty Day that the Supreme gets so many great things in life, like tickets to the Oscars and Met Ball tickets. So she brings Stevie Nicks in as a gift to Misty to prove to her that if she exhibits more power, she'll get that and more. Then the other girls come home and see Stevie and Misty singing, and it starts them trying to move much quicker to prove that they are the Supreme."
Even before Ryan Murphy brought Stevie on-board, Lily was already raving about the legendary singer and the fact that she and Ryan were in touch. "Actually, when I found out about that I had to pretend I didn’t know about it because I’d get too excited," she told Vulture. "I wouldn’t be able to function. Someone said something like, “Well, we might change this one thing. We’re e-mailing Stevie now about it.” Uh, excuse me? You’re doing what? I don’t really freak out about many people, but even talking about her right now my cheeks are turning red. She’s a really big deal to me."
We have a feeling these two pretend-witches got along famously on the AHS set!
