The anthology horror television series “American Horror Story” has renewed with the sixth season followed by the burgeoning success of its previous seasons. The upcoming season becomes all the more thrilling with the inclusion of actor Denis O’Hare.
O’Hare is the one who wowed the world through his transgender character, Liz Taylor, in “American Horror Story: Hotel.” His acting brilliance left the audience clamoring for more from this veteran artist.
The news of the 54-year-old actor joining the cast has been confirmed recently. Going by the trend, it is highly anticipated that O’Hare’s character will be a mainstay in the upcoming season of the American Horror Story. Will he play another transgender this season? Well, his character has not been announced yet.
Enstarz says that Denis O’Hare’s praiseworthy role has earned a nomination for upcoming Emmy Award as Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie. The actor who was initially skeptical about playing Liz Taylor shared his experience recently with his fans in an interview with Yahoo! He got a bit scared after learning about the role because he never attempted a role of a transgender or never wore a dress and heels. However, later, Liz Taylor certainly became one of the most important characters in the series.
Denis O’Hare expressed that Executive Producer Ryan Murphy has a great quality of character picturing and setting up of the role. He further said that Murphy described the character of Liz Taylor as a transgender woman who has a bold appearance.
Liz’s character was inspired by a real-life drag queen of the 70s who died in a fire at a German nightclub in “American Horror Story.” The American star somehow got convinced and bagged the role. The role proved to be a blessing in disguise as it made him earn more respect as a performer.
O’Hare will be returning for Season 6 of “American Horror Story” along with Lady Gaga, Angela Bassett, Evan Peters, Leslie Jordan and Matt Bomer. To this point, nothing has been officially declared about the plot of the upcoming season.
“American Horror Story” Season 6 is expected to return on FX by fall.
