On Friday (8th August), the cast of American Horror Story: Hotel assembled in Los Angeles at the Television Critics Association and they revealed who they would be playing in the upcoming series.

“Her character’s name is Elizabeth,” Murphy announced. “She owns the hotel, and she is sort of a very wealthy social doyenne who is consumed with art and fashion and people and she has a nefarious plan that is revealed in the first episode and plays out over the course of the season. She starts shooting on Monday.”

Murphy also said the dark nature of Gaga’s character will be revealed in a very gruesome murder scene on the show. Gaga will reportedly be working closely with Matt Bomer, who appeared in a small role in the previous series, American Horror Story: Freak Show.

"She has a pretty spectacular murder scene to shoot with Matt Bomer," Murphy said, as ET reports. "I'm glad that she has Matt because he's so great and they've all socialized. I can't say enough great things about her. "

Bomer will play Donovan but he revealed very little about his character other than he has “interesting relationships” with the women in his life. 

Bomer’s character is not the only one Gaga’s Elizabeth has a close relationship with. Angela Bassett plays an actress, Ramona Royale, who has a “long lasting relationship” with Elizabeth. Finn Wittrock’s character, Tristan Duffy, is a model who is “always looking for the next high” which he finds in his relationship with Lady Gaga’s character.  

American Horror Story: Hotel premieres on 7th October on FX.
