American Horror Story is well known for bringing back actors from previous seasons, but giving them new roles. In American Horror Story: Freak Show, however, we’ve got an actress reprising her role from season 2. Naomi Grossman played Pepper in American Horror Story: Asylum and now Freak Show will fill us in on what she was up to prior to being committed to Briarcliff.
A while back, there was an American Horror Story call sheet leak and the document had Pepper’s name on it, so there’s been talk of Pepper’s return for a little while, but now, not only did show co-creator Ryan Murphy confirm it, but FX also unveiled a brand new still of Pepper in Freak Show. Hit the jump to check it out. American Horror Story: Freak Show begins on October 8th and also stars Sarah Paulson, Denis O’Hare, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy, Michael Chiklis, Jessica Lange and Evan Peters.
