Gaga stars as The Countess in 'American Horror Story: Hotel', which begins next month
A new trailer for American Horror Story: Hotel has been released, and it features Lady Gaga’s character The Countess dancing to Rammstein’s industrial metal banger ‘Du Hast’.
In what is her first major TV acting role, Gaga stars in the horror anthology’s fifth season as Elizabeth, aka The Countess, the owner of the hotel at the heart of the dark drama.
The show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy recently said of Gaga’s character: “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. Watch Gaga dancing to Rammstein in the trailer below.
