American Horror Story: Hotel Countess Checks In On London Tube

A44O0561Morning commuters last week caught a glimpse of a striking vision in white, with three well-dressed young boys at her side. Many already know them as American Horror Story: Hotel’s The Countess and the undead children she is fond of. The arrival of these head turning and eerie characters is in anticipation of the series’ terrifying fifth season premiere on Tuesday 20th October at 10pm on FOX. The reason for their visit is simple—it is a notice to UK fans that your room is ready. Enjoy your stay at American Horror Story: Hotel. Be sure to stay a while. You’re going to love it.

A44O0295Donning a custom floor length white gown and red glove pulled right out of a memorable scene from the premiere episode aptly titled “Checking In”—The Countess and her poshly dressed children roamed the streets of London taking in the city. They were spotted making their way around on the tube, walking down city streets and passing by Parliament and Big Ben, much to the bemusement, fear and double taking of passersby.
