Last week, we were duped by a phony IMDB entry stating Lily Rabe would be playing Sharon Tate on last week’s episode of American Horror Story: Cult, Charles (Manson) in Charge. While Rabe and Tate do share stunning resemblances, it turned out to be a case of wishful thinking, and the entry has since been corrected to credit Canadian actress Rachel Roberts as the late actress.
It’s worth noting, though, that if Rabe doesn’t appear on tonight’s season finally, Cult will mark the first chapter of the long-running anthology series the actress doesn’t participate in. If this turns out to be the case, it will no doubt spark conjecture about Rabe’s future with American Horror Story, which has already been renewed through Season 9.
Check out the trailer and synopsis for tonight’s episode, Great Again, airing on FX at 10 PM.
Official Synopsis: American Horror Story is an anthology horror drama series created and produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. The Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning franchise is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television.
