'American Horror Story': Alexandra Breckenridge Returns for 'Coven'

Moira the Housekeeper No. 2

Alexandra Breckenridge plays the young Moira who continues to cross the line with Ben. Episode 3 of the series will explore Moira's back story and her bizarre ties to Jessica Lange's Constance. Spoiler alert -- It involves the following quote Lange has in the pilot: "Don't make me kill you again."

Alter-ego Conroy teases that the ties that keep Moira bound to the house will be explored. "You learn a lot, the explanation of everyone and why they’re there is quite moving. And why the house is revealing so much – it’s a deep, deep story."

American Horror Story is welcoming back another one of its original stars.

Actress Alexandra Breckenridge has joined the A-list cast of the witchy-themed Coven, co-creator Ryan Murphy announced Friday via Twitter.

Breckenridge was a regular part of the freshman season of the FX anthology, playing young Moira opposite Frances Conroy. The latter actress also recently booked a return for Coven.

While little is known about Coven, producers said at PaleyFest in March that the series would again search for haunted places in America. Murphy previously told The Hollywood Reporter that the next installment would feature three characters playing real people, with co-star Kathy Bates being one of them.
