This week we are putting the spotlight on Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning actress Frances Conroy. In Season 1 – Murder House, we first met her as Moira O’Hara, the housekeeper and maid at the Murder House. In season 2 – Asylum, Conroy played Shachath, the Angel of Death. Her most iconic AHS character is Myrtle Snow, from Season 3 – Coven, and Season 8 – Apocalypse.
In Season 4 – Freak Show, Conroy played Gloria Mott, the wealthy and widowed mother of Dandy Mott. After taking a season off of American Horror Story, Frances returned to the show for Roanoke’s reality-show reenactment of Mama Polk. Here she played an actress playing the part of the Polk family matriarch in “My Roanoke Nightmare.” For AHS Season 7 – Cult, Frances appeared as Bebe Babbitt in a pair of episodes.
