Stevie Nicks Headed For "American Horror Story: Coven"

Based on so much of her writing, Stevie Nicks would be the perfect person to play a witch, but that would be jumping ahead of conclusions.

Director Ryan Murphy tweeted earlier today that Stevie Nicks was head to American Horror Story: Coven.
Guess who's visiting the Coven? The legendary Stevie Nicks!
Now, there are many that are speculating that Stevie will be playing a witch on the series, but no announcement has been made. It is known that the character of Misty Day (Lily Rabe) is obsessed with Nicks on the show, so it's just as likely that Stevie will somehow play herself.

That obsession is also held by Murphy who told Entertainment Weekly "When I was growing up, I was always obsessed with those Stevie Nicks songs like Rhiannon and Gypsy."

He also talked about getting Nicks, who has had eight of her songs featured on this season's episodes, involved in the show. "...she was very resistant because from the beginning of her career people who are in the Wiccan community had given her a hard time thinking she was a witch and she got a lot of scary fan letters. She didn’t like the darkness of that, and I explained to her the part and she’s like, ‘Aw f—, let’s just do it. OK, I love it."

So far, according to Murphy, this season of the show has used eight of Nicks' songs.
