Stevie Nicks to appear in American television series

Stevie Nicks is set to guest star in a forthcoming episode of US TV show American Horror Story.

Nicks will appear in the current series of the supernatural thriller show. The third season of the show is subtitled American Horror Story: Coven, and is set in New Orleans. News of Nicks' cameo was revealed by the show's creator Ryan Murphy earlier today on Twitter. He wrote:

"Guess who's visiting the Coven? The legendary Stevie Nicks!"

Murphy is a long-time Fleetwood Mac fan. Speaking recently to Entertainment Weekly , Murphy said, "When I was growing up, I was always obsessed with those Stevie Nicks songs like ‘Rhiannon’ and ‘Gypsy'. And I remember reading an article where Courtney Love called Stevie Nicks the ‘white witch’ and Grace Slick the ‘dark witch.’ And I have a good relationship with Stevie because of Glee. She is one of the few artists that have come to hang out. She had been writing Lea [Michele] and I regularly since the Cory [Monteith] situation, because she really loved Cory [who passed away in July]. So she’s just a wonderful, wonderful person.”

Meanwhile, Nicks recently revealed that she would "love to write music for Game Of Thrones". The singer started watching the hit HBO fantasy show after contracting pneumonia following the death of her mother, Barbara Nicks, and credits author George RR Martin for helping her through the grieving process on her road to recovery.
