Lady Gaga Is "Terrifyingly Genius" On AHS

Lady Gaga’s role on American Horror Story: Hotel is shaping up to be monumental.

Gaga’s American Horror Story cast are thrilled with her performance thus far. Murphy said in a recent interview Gaga would begin shooting last Monday (Aug. 10), but no one had any idea how incredible she’d be. Show creator Ryan Murphy said Gaga was “lovely,” a “total” pro” and “terrifyingly genius.”

Meanwhile, Gaga’s co-stars including Kathy Bates, who plays the character running the hotel, and Matt Bomer, who’s Isis’ son, also had kind words for Mother Monster.

Last week, Gaga said of shooting her role for AHS, “Thoughts on first day shooting for AHS? I say, I've died and gone to my personal heaven.”

“How it happened with Gaga is: she wrote and said ‘I love the show, would you consider putting me on?’ And I wrote back ‘Yes’, caps, caps,” Murphy revealed while promoting his upcoming series Scream Queens at the 2015 Comic-Con International in San Diego several weeks ago.

“Her schedule was so bananas crazy that she gave us a huge window and she is going to shoot all of her episodes in that window,” he continued. “She likes to be sort of doing one thing at the time. So when she is acting with us she is going to be acting. But she has been very collaborative and incredibly fun. You know when you work with somebody like her you sign up for something that is larger than life, and that’s what you want. And that has proven to be the case now. You know part of her role involves fashion. You want Lady Gaga to look a certain way so the designers have been coming out of the woodwork making stuff for us. It’s been really, really thrilling, people’s reaction to her.”
