Seasons: Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, Hotel
Paulson has been involved since the first season, in which she had a smaller part as Constance's psychic, Billie Dean Howard. She was arguably the main character on Asylum as Lana Winters, an intrepid reporter with terrible luck, and on Coven, Paulson was Cordelia Foxx, headmistress at the boarding school for young witches. On Freak Show, she returned as Bette and Dot Tattler, a new addition to the freak show. Paulson also appears on Hotel as Sally.
