The 23 Stars Who Keep Popping Up on American Horror Story

Jul 8 2016 - 3:05am

American Horror Story [1] switches up its spooky theme each year, but there are usually a handful of recurring actors. Series staples like Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, and Sarah Paulson have appeared every season, but creator Ryan Murphy has added more and more actors to his growing stable throughout the years. With the mysterious sixth season [2] on the horizon, we're excited to see what the cast [3] will look like this time around. Lady Gaga [4] will be back, which means we can add her to this list once we get an official look at her new character (cross your fingers that it's soon!), as will a handful of people from Hotel. For now, take a look at the many faces of the American Horror Story cast. We included everyone who has been on multiple seasons, even if they played the same character more than once, like Matt Ross (aka Dr. Charles Montgomery) or Naomi Grossman (aka Pepper).
