American Horror Story Characters


Over the course of its six installments on FX, American Horror Story has introduced us to such a wide range of characters, from the ghosts of infamous serial killers to vapid reenactment actors and everything in between. And we mean, quite literally, everything.

Now that we've reached the conclusion of American Horror Story: Roanoke (which featured the aforementioned reenactment actors, as well as the murderous ghosts of the lost colony of Roanoke), the time is right to revisit our roundup of all the main actors who've performed multiple characters over the years and update our ranking.

Yes, that means Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Denis O'Hare and, of course, Jessica Lange—as well as newbies to the list, Lady Gaga and Cheyenne Jackson—and their characters from American Horror Story: Murder House, American Horror Story: Asylum, American Horror Story: Coven, American Horror Story: Freak Show, American Horror Story: Hotel and American Horror Story: Roanoke
