What the Countess wants, the Countess will get. That’s what Cheyenne Jackson, who stars in Season 5 of the chilling FX drama “American Horror Story” revealed while talking about Lady Gaga’s blood-sucking character.
Jackson, who portrays Will Drake, the Cortez’s newest, wealthy owner, dished to TV Guide about his twisted relationship with the hypnotizing vampire -- you know, the very same one who is after Will’s money… and his life. In episode 3, the Countess divulged to Tristan (Finn Wittrock), her newest baby vamp, that she conjured up a wicked plan to seduce the prosperous fashion mogul, marry him and then kill him to gain his entire estate. Simply diabolical (and something the potential ex-wife or Mr. March [Evan Peters] would totally do, right?).
The actor revealed to TV Guide that fans will get to watch Will and the Countess’ deadly romance unfold, “American Horror Story-style,” in the next few episodes.
“We're on Episode 9 now, so we've already shot three or four episodes that definitely deal with that storyline and I've had to push myself to do things that I've never done on camera, emotionally and physically,” Jackson revealed. “There's definitely an episode that my parents will be skipping if I have anything to do with it.”
Does that mean Jackson might have his very own, red-hot sex scene with the mother of monsters? Although the actor attempted to stay tight-lipped about his character’s potential bedrooms scenes with the Countess, he did reveal that anything is possible in “American Horror Story” -- especially when it comes to sex.
“Well, it's 'Horror Story.' I'm trying to think of what I can say and not get in trouble. It's definitely what you would imagine,” he teased. “It's the Countess, and when the Countess wants something, she gets it.”
Ryan Murphy, co-creator of the FX anthology, hinted before the Season 5 premiere just how drenched in sexual drama “Hotel” would be when he spoke to Entertainment Tonight in September.
"I think this season of all of them feels like our most modern season, it's definitely our most sexual season,” he noted. “It all starts with that lead actor, which [Lady Gaga] is for us, and she doesn't not disappoint -- I'll tell you that much."
Seems like things will be heating up between Will and the Countess after all!
“American Horror Story: Hotel” airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. EST on FX.
