Top 10 Best American Horror Story CharactersFrom misunderstood villains to courageous heroes, American Horror Story offers a complex tapestry of personalities, each one crafted with depth and emotion. They are characters who've frightened us, made us laugh, cry, and, most importantly, think.
But what makes these characters so compelling? Is it their development throughout a season, their unforgettable lines, or perhaps their portrayal by some of the finest actors in the industry? Maybe it's all of those things combined. The show's creators have succeeded in building characters that feel real, even in the most unreal of circumstances.
He lit Larry on fire, killed 15 people in a school shooting, he kills Chad and Patrick, and even goes as far as to sodomize Patrick, but you still feel for Tate. You can see the shred of humanity inside of him, and you can see how much he loves Violet, and that is what makes him the greatest character.
The first season I ever watched was Freak Show, but after I finally watched Murder House, I can't stop seeing Evan Peters as Tate. Not Kit, not Jimmy, just Tate. Maybe because he was 23 and looked like a teenage Kurt Cobain (I mean, seriously, he looked a lot like Kurt Cobain). Phenomenal role. I fell in love with Tate after all he did.
I can't explain how much I feel for this hunk of junky demon. I accept that he is my devil, but I am sure he is still innocent. He still has happiness and hope inside of him, but it'll just take a while for Violet to see that! Tate changed, and you fangirls know it.
He's evil. But at the same time, he has the biggest heart of all characters. All the bad things he has done was to help people. Think about it. And he's actually pretty hot. I love evil characters.
She is in charge everywhere.
Lana survived torture from Briarcliff and all sorts of shenanigans from Bloody Face, aka Oliver Thredson. She escaped and wound up in Briarcliff again. She was released from Briarcliff, killed Oliver, and had to kill her grown-up adopted son. She was attacked by cannibals in season 6, and her best friend disappeared without a trace. But she came out on top and is totally awesome. She is tough, but she's no cookie.
Badass and one of the strongest characters in the show. Plus, you kinda feel sorry for her while she's in the asylum and has gone through horrible stuff like attempted straight conversion therapy, being trapped by Bloody Face, and lots of whippings.
She is undoubtedly one of the best Jessicas and AHS characters. Although her dark past and being a stern nun in the beginning, she has such a sophisticated character by showing how affectionate, caring, amazing, and charismatic woman she is actually with a broken heart. She has such a unique, interesting, and mysterious lore story which is excellently written. Besides, it should be revealed more facts about this marvelous character!
She deserves much better and to be loved, regardless of her assumed murder of Missy Stone, therefore seeing her 15-16 years later after the accident as a grown young woman, being hardly recognizable from Jude, as Missy returned back home with a few broken bones after the incident.
How not to love her as a character!
She turned out to be one of the most down-to-earth characters ever, and her character development was amazing. Also, Jude was the only character out of Jessica's roles that did not kill anyone.
She tried to kill Leigh Emerson and thought she killed Missy Stone. Also almost killed Mary Eunice to help her, but those weren't evil things.
She tried to kill Misty Day, and she didn't revive Zoe and tried to kill Kyle.
Madison is hilarious. I loved her.
I love her more than burgers.
The best ever.
She has an odd mindset, showing she's been through a lot, and I mean, if Tate Langton can love her, something must be quite intriguing about her.
She is the most relatable and amazing character. She deserves to be in the top 3.
Her storyline will forever be beautiful and yet haunting.
Elsa Mars is amazing!
She was so nice. I'm glad she actually had a good fate. She was in heaven and not trapped in a house with evil spirits.
The role itself is amazing, and Lady Gaga just took it to another level. By far, one of the best AHS characters.
Played by Lady Gaga? Too good to be true.
He's evil and humorous at the same time! Another awesome character played by Evan Peters.
Her beatdown of Madison was the most satisfying part in the season, as was all of Delphine's torture.
I love her bohemian vibe, and she deserved to live though.
She is the best hobo. Is that mean? Whoops!
So sad, her fate.
Evan Peters has a lot of talent! He goes from playing the evil Tate to Kit Walker, who you're rooting for the entire season of Asylum! Asylum is the best season, but I don't get why people hate Hotel. It was better than Coven and Freak Show!
People hate Hotel because Jessica Lange isn't in it, but while I miss her a lot on the show, I still like Hotel.
So sweet and genuinely tried to do what was best for others.
Had a massive crush on him.
I love Pepper. She is the most lovable character, and I wish there was a show all about Pepper.
She should not have died.
Did she think Sister Jude looks like Elsa, and Kit looks like Jimmy?
In a season that I really wasn't interested in, Liz Taylor is an amazing character, and Dennis O'Hare plays Liz amazingly.
There are literally no words. She is just awesome in every way possible, especially fashion.
How the hell is she so low? Must say, Misty Day is the most annoying character on the series.
I feel so bad for him. All he wanted was to make children happy, and that was ruined for him. He was such a sweet guy, and although he murdered people, in the long run, he just wanted to make others happy.
