Pose Actress Angelica "Candy" Ross To Join The Cast of American Horror Story 1984
“Pose” star Angelica Ross has joined the cast of “American Horror Story: 1984” in an “unforgettable role,” creator Ryan Murphy said Wednesday.
“Last night’s episode of Pose required us all to dig deep — @janetmock as writer, myself as writer and director, but most of all our incredible leading ladies,” Murphy wrote in an Instagram post. “I must applaud @angelicaross for her tour de force of a performance as Candy Abundance Ferocity. It has been a gift to watch her blossom as a true star and undeniable talent.”
“Though she will always be our Candy, and our show suffers this incredible loss, I am elated that the world will get much more Angelica,” he continued. “She is joining the American Horror Story family in another unforgettable role. Congrats Angelica for making history, leaping from #PoseFX to #AHS1984. Welcome to the #AHS family!”
Emma Roberts and Gus Kenworthy are the only previously announced cast members for Season 9 of the FX anthology series, which will not star “AHS” staple Sarah Paulson.
A representative for “AHS” studio 20th Century Fox confirmed Ross’ casting shortly after Murphy made the announcement.
