The Older Sister of American Horror Story’s Taissa Farmiga Stars in What Other Cable Show?

The Farmiga family is a talented one, with two sisters on critically-acclaimed cable series. One is Taissa Farmiga, who starred in two seasons of FX hit anthology American Horror Story — as Violet Harmon in Season 1 (aka Murder House) and Zoe Benson in Season 3 (aka Coven).

But what about her older sis? What's her show?

That's the question with which we quizzed Viggle LIVE! users, and 57 percent of you nailed the answer: Vera Farmiga is the star of A&E's Bates Motel, playing Norma Bates in this modern-day Psycho prequel.

Vera's other notable gigs include the films The Departed, The Conjuring, and Up in the Air (for which she received an Oscar nomination).

In fact, it was Vera who persuaded her younger sis to become an actor, casting Taissa in her directorial debut, Higher Ground — after bribing her with the keys to her Toyota Tacoma.

And even despite their two-decade age gap — Vera is 40, Taissa is 19 — the two sisters are incredibly close. "Taissa is the person you take with you to choose your Oscar gown and then take to In-N-Out Burger," Vera tells Teen Vogue. "As much of an age difference as there is, she is one of my best friends in the world."

(For the record, 22 percent guessed The Americans and 21 percent guessed The Walking Dead.)
