Pose star Michaela Jaé Rodriguez joins American Horror Story: ‘Scream queen era!’
Pose star and trans icon Michaela Jaé Rodriguez is joining American Horror Story season 12, and fans are more than ready to see her slay.
After making history in 2022 as the first transgender actor to win a Golden Globe for her role as Ballroom house mother Blanca in Pose, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez has become one of the hottest names in Hollywood.
Over the past couple of months alone, she’s become the face of Charlotte Tilbury, spoken passionately about trans rights during Variety’s Power of Women event and is currently hard at work filming the second season of Apple TV+’s Loot.
And the actor isn’t slowing down any time soon, as she’s gracing our screens by joining upcoming season of American Horror Story, the hugely popular FX crime anthology series helmed by Pose co-creator Ryan Murphy.
Although her role is being kept under wraps for the time being, she confirmed her casting on Instagram with a screenshot of a Deadline announcement alongside the caption: “Guess the cat’s out the bag.”
