Each year, the American Horror Story characters are dealt a new hand to play. They'll go from angel of death to campy witch and murderer to coked out model as AHS reboots for another chapter. But let's face it: some characters pop more than others. In honor of the AHS: Cult finale, we ranked each actor's characters from best to worst. Click through to find out each actor's best character now!
Lee wasn't the most likable person, but she was the last one standing when all was said and done.
Was there a more powerful woman in Cult than Beverly? Sure, she may have fallen under Kai's sway, but she woke up when it mattered most.
Bono didn't have a ton to do but look menacing as the reenactment's version of the cannibalistic Polk.
As Kai's most loyal servant, Gary never had too much to do, but he sure was willing to promote the cause no matter the cost. (Hint: His life.)
A sad ghost with a penchant for baby taking, Nora is the weaker of Lily Rabe's AHS characters.
She was an adulterer, a murderer, and a Yogi. But worst of all about Shelby? She was a whiner.
Yes, Rabe played real-life serial killer (and inspiration for the movie Monster) Aileen Wuornos in an over-the-top performance in Hotel for one episode. Eat your heart out, Charlize Theron!
Sister Mary Eunice was Rabe's most developed character. She was sweet and innocent...until she was possessed. Lots of opportunity for Rabe to do a variety of emotions here.
The shawls, the Stevie Nicks obsession...Misty was fun!
Not as much a character than a plot device, the fact that the most exciting thing about Scathach (the fact that she was the original Supreme in Coven) was revealed in a Ryan Murphy interview rather than onscreen isn't good.
Glam, sensuous, and with a pressing thirst for blood? That's how we like our Gaga.
Sure Matt Bomer showed some skin, but his gay rent boy character was offed straight away. No development there.
He's showing skin, his killer hair and an actual story arc? We're sold.
Nice twist revealing that Rudy was Kai and Winter's older brother, but the character never really felt all that developed.
Will was gay, but then he fell in love with the Countess? We love Gaga as much as everyone else, but that was wildly unbelievable—which is saying something, considering this franchise.
Was Sidney a total sociopath? Sure. But was his unwavering devotion to keeping his reality show alive, blood moon and murderous ghosts, absolutely hysterical? You betcha.
She was nasty to Beverly and she paid dearly for it.
A con artist who really didn't do much to endear herself to viewers, compared to Emma Roberts' Coven character, this is very easy to call.
The unapologetic attitude, the magic powers, the "Surprise, bitch" meme ... need we go on as to why Madison Montgomery is Roberts' tops AHS character?
If he'd only supported his mother, Tomasin would've never turned into the Butcher and no one in Roanoke would've been in the miserable mess they were in. Way to go, Ambrose.
Ugh, there was nothing redeeming for Wes Bentley to do with him.
Dylan might've been the most sensible person on Roanoke. Naturally, he only lasted an episode. But his calm use of his Army skills to at least try and get the remaining survivors to safety was admirable. RIP Dylan.
Dude had a little head on the back of his own! He was creepy and helped usher Jessica Lange out of her last AHS.
