Emma Roberts Was Initially Slated For Just Three Episodes Of American Horror Story

In the Collider interview, Emma Roberts shared her thoughts about Madison Montgomery being featured in “American Horror Story” Season 8. She suggested that she did not expect to have a chance to portray the intimidating starlet for a second time. She explained that the witch was initially written as a less significant role. “When I [sic] as originally on ‘Coven,’ I was only supposed to be in a couple of episodes. It wasn’t supposed to be the whole season, or anything like that. They just were like, ‘Will you come and do three episodes?’ And then, it just kept going and going and going,” stated the actress.

Roberts shared similar information during her 2014 Gold Derby interview. She explained Murphy informed her that Madison would be an important character after she filmed the first episode of “American Horror Story” Season 3. “Originally, when we talked about the part, it was kind of up in the air if she was really going to be that big of a role. And I was kind of like, ‘wait, no, she has to be back,’ and then after the first episode, Ryan was like, ‘no, you’re definitely going to come back,'” recalled Roberts.

She then quipped that she began bothering the show’s writing staff to ensure that Madison would return after she was murdered by Fiona Goode (Jessica Lange) in Season 3, Episode 3 (“The Replacements”).
