Naomi Campbell Will First Appear in 'American Horror Story: Hotel' in This Week's Episode

Wonder no more!

Naomi Campbell’s first appearances on FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel” will happen during this Wednesday’s episode, in which fashion mogul Will Drake (Cheyenne Jackson) brings couture to the Hotel Cortez, and Naomi is introduced as Claudia Bankson, a fashion editor whose critiques may have deadly consequences.

“She’s kind of outlandish,” said Campbell, adding, “She thinks she’s indestructible and nothing’s going to hurt her.” We can assume something will, ultimately.

After this week’s episode, Naomi will also make an appearance during the October 21st episode (next week).

No sign of Bassett yet though; she plays Ramona Royale, a film star who used to have a romantic relationship with The Countess (Lady Gaga), and wants revenge. Said Bassett: “They are powerful women at opposite sides and at odds with one another, each believing that they’re right […] They’re both very strong women, so I don’t know who’s going to make who, who’s bitch.”

Gaga, Bassett and Campbell are joined by Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Wes Bentley, Chloë Sevigny and Matt Bomer in the cast of “Hotel,” along with newcomer Cheyenne Jackson.
