It looks as if all of the rooms available in American Horror Story: Hotel will soon be occupied as the ever-growing cast adds yet another name to its list, in the form of British supermodel, Naomi Campbell.
TV Line has reported that 45-year-old Campbell will play a fashion editor who will clash with Lady Gaga's elusive character, who will also be associated with fashion, according to creator Ryan Murphy.
The supermodel has had some practice when it comes to fictional on-screen rivalry lately, last being seen in a recurring role as fashion designer Camilla Marks in Empire's last season. A role which saw her bickering with Taraji P. Henson's Cookie Lyon frequently.
Campbell and Gaga are just two of the new faces set to be checking in to the fifth season of the show. They will also be working alongside Godzilla's Richard T. Jones, 666 Park Avenue's Helena Mattsson, United 93's Cheyenne Jackson and New Girl's Max Greenfield who are all fresh to the AHS franchise.
More familiar names that will feature in Hotel include Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Finn Wittrock and most recently announced, Lily Rabe, who has been part of the show since its beginnings. Matt Bomer, Angela Bassett, Chloë Sevigny and Denis O' Hare are also all confirmed to be returning.
Despite the anthology series being slightly more 'light-hearted' in its most recent two seasons compared to the initial two, and the addition of both a well-known pop singer and model, showrunner Murphy urges that Hotel is going to be "straight horror this year". Talking to Deadline just last month, he said: "The upcoming season that we're doing is much more horror-based; it's much more dark. It's about a theme and an idea that's very close to my heart that I've always wanted to do that's a little bloodier and grislier I think than anything that we've done before."
He also detailed how he was able to explore some of his own fears in Hotel, something that he hasn't felt that he has done since the first season.
"Murder House, I thought, was a very primal season because everybody's great fear is about the bogeyman under the bed in their house, and this feels similar to me in that when you check into a hotel, there are certain things beyond your control... Other people have the keys to your room; they can come in there. You're not exactly safe, it's a very unsettling idea."
