Kathy Bates is set to join the American Horror Story. The Titanic star will appear in the third season of the show her character will be as the frenemy of Jessica Lange‘s and the creator Ryan Murphy promises she will be a ”bad, bad woman”.
”Oh, Kathy’s never [played] someone this bad. Her [character] is a bad, bad woman! (The character is) five times worse than [her] ‘Misery’ character — which is why she liked it. When I pitched this to Kathy, her mouth was drop-jawed because what I was pitching actually happened. It’s a true event … You’ll see. It’s some good stuff.”
Bates has spoke out about her return to work after she had taken time off from work to undergo a double mastectomy following her breast cancer diagnosis.
”After much consideration, I underwent a double mastectomy. Luckily, I don’t have to undergo radiation or chemo. My family call me Kat because I always land on my feet and thankfully this is no exception.”
”My doctors have assured me I’m going to be around for a long time. I’m looking forward to getting back to work doing what I love.”
