Fear the Gaga. “American Horror Story” Season 5 hasn’t even premiered yet, but viewers are being warned about new cast member Lady Gaga’s “dangerous” character.
On Friday the official “American Horror Story: Hotel” Twitter account posted a chilling GIF of Gaga as Countess Elizabeth, the owner of Hotel Cortez in Los Angeles. The video is captioned: “Pristine. Pure. Dangerous.”

Information on Lady Gaga’s character is extremely limited. One of the things that fans of the FX miniseries know is that she has an “ancient blood virus” that leads her to drink blood. She wears a special sharp silver glove that allows her to puncture her victims and drain them of blood – an accessory that is surprisingly missing in the GIF. Countess Elizabeth also appears to have a thing for collecting small children and engaging in foursomes. Fans will watch her interact with two “American Horror Story” veterans – Matt Bomer, who will be playing a man named Donovan, and Finn Wittrock, who will be portraying a hotel resident named Tristan.
This is not the first warning that fans received about Countess Elizabeth. Co-creator Ryan Murphy also warned viewers about the character earlier this month. “Gaga will get you,” he captioned a photo on Twitter. While Gaga’s not exactly featured front and center in the photo, fans can see her sharp gloved hand reaching for a blonde woman.
