As "American Horror Story" season 2 edges closer to principal production, another name has been added to the cast.
According to TVLine, Britne Oldford has been signed for a recurring role as a young woman named Alma. No other information about Alma was released, but presumably she will be a patient at the institution for the criminally insane that will serve as the setting for the second season.
Oldford is a relative newcomer who is best known for playing Cadie Campbell on MTV's "Skins," in addition to her upcoming roles in Darkroom and 36 Saints.
Information about the upcoming "American Horror Story" season has been slowly trickling out. Earlier this week, Joseph Fiennes was reportedly in talks to play the head of the institution, who may also serve as a romantic interest for Jessica Lange's character. "The Voice" judge, Adam Levine will play one half of a couple described as "The Lovers" alongside actress Tiasia Jacobs, James Cromwell will portray Dr. Arden and French actress Lizzie Brocheré will step into the role of "a fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual, and dangerous wild-child sexpot." Chloë Sevigny has also been cast as a woman who was institutionalized by her husband over her sexual addiction.
In addition to Lange, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe will all be back for the second season in entirely new roles which have previously been described as the opposite of their characters from the first season.
"American Horror Story" season 2 is expected to begin this fall on FX.
