Kaia Gerber is one of the greatest models of her generation, but it seems that she's not just stopping at a career in fashion. American director Ryan Murphy has just announced that Kaia will be cast in the 10th series of "American Horror Story".
On Instagram, the series creator shared a photo of the model, with the caption: "Very excited to announce that Kaia Gerber is joining the American Horror Story family."
The 19-year-old model mirrored that same excitement on her own social media platform in response to her friends' support for her new gig. "MY AMERICAN HORROR STORY SUPERSTAR," wrote her friend and singer Charlotte Lawrence shared Murphy's post. "FREAKIN OUT." Gerber responded, "not as much as me!!!!"
Unlike other seasons, this new one will have two stories. Titled American Horror Story: Double Feature, this tenth edition will have "one by the sea, one by the sand", according to the latest released teaser video. Gerber will join regulars Sarah Paulson, Even Peters, Kathy Bates, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross and Finn Wittrock. Yet another notable cast member to join the show is Macaulay Culkin.
While this is the model's biggest role yet, it's not her acting debut. In 2016, she made her first on-screen appearance in a small role for the TV film Sister Cities. Nevertheless, Gerber's stint on AHS will be an opportunity for the young star to fully exercise her acting muscle.
Each season of AHS explores a different theme and scenario of terror, ranging from a haunted house, madhouse, witches' coven, circuses to a hotel with a dark and murderous history. Throughout its history, the series has been awarded 95 Emmy Awards and won 16. Earlier in January 2020, Disney-owned FX renewed American Horror Story for another three seasons, until the 13th season.
