Sources tell E! that “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy has written a role expressly for the daughter of an iconic actress in his upcoming FX series “American Horror Story” — and she’ll share an “ungodly connection” with Connie Britton.
Lily Rabe, daughter of the late great Jill Clayburgh, is joining the cast for six episodes. Lily is a Broadway and TV actress, having starred in Steel Magnolias and “Medium” and, in a way, she is following in her mother’s footsteps. Jill, who passed away in November, counted among her many TV and movie projects “Nip/Tuck” (also from Ryan Murphy) and “The Practice” (with AHS star Dylan McDermott).
Lily will play the original owner of the haunted house that Connie and Dylan move into, and her story will be told in 1920s-era flashbacks. Sources who work on the show say she’s fantastically creeptastic in this new role, and there will be a cool and unexpected reveal regarding that aforementioned “ungodly connection” to Connie.
