Lady Gaga appears in first trailer for ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ – watch

Gaga plays the hotel's 'wealthy and stylish' owner Elizabeth

The first trailer for American Horror Story: Hotel has been released ahead of the show’s premiere next month.

Lady Gaga takes on her first major TV acting role in the horror anthology’s fifth season and the 30-second teaser features a brief glimpse of her character, the hotel’s “wealthy and stylish” owner Elizabeth.

The show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy has recently said of Gaga’s character in the series: “She owns the hotel and she is sort of a very wealthy social doyenne who is consumed with art and fashion and people. She has a nefarious plan that is revealed in the first episode that plays out over the course of the season.”

Gaga is joined by an impressive company of castmates including Kathy Bates, Chloë Sevigny, Matt Bomer, Emma Roberts, Cheyenne Jackson, Wes Bentley, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, Finn Wittrock, Naomi Campbell and Max Greenfield.

She recently threw a special midnight pool party for her castmates, which involved Gaga dyeing the water in her swimming pool bright red.

American Horror Story: Hotel will feature 13 episodes and premieres on US cable network FX on October 7.
