White witches rejoice! Fleetwood Mac’s legendary lady, Stevie Nicks, renowned for her mystical ways and musical prowess, will be making an appearance on FX’s American Horror Story: Coven.
Co-creator Ryan Murphy tweeted this morning something that fans have been speculating ever since the appearance of Nicks lookalike Misty Day. Lily Rabe plays the lonely hippie girl with the power of resurgence who lives in the Louisiane swamplands and just wants to find her “tribe.”
While the Coven is distracted by zombies and deaths, Day is slowly but surely increasing her power, getting all her guidance from her hero, Stevie Nicks.
Murphy explained to Entertainment Weekly:
“When we got to this witch idea, I thought, if you’re Misty and you have grown up alone and you don’t know any other witches, there’s one witch you probably would know and that’s Stevie Nicks. So I called Stevie Nicks and first I said, ‘I want to use you in the show.’ But 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.'”
Let’s hope she is the goddess of all the supremes–or Misty’s witch mom. That’s would be amazing.
