American Horror Story: Exclusive behind the scenes images from 'Asylum' before 'Coven' begins

It's the 1st of October and 'American Horror Story: Coven' is getting ready to make its début later this month, just time for some Halloween scares. In the run up to this, we've got three exclusive behind the scenes images from the previous series 'American Horror Story: Asylum' to help build excitement for what's about to come in the show's third series.

In these exclusive shots, we get to experience things from the other side of the camera and go behind the scenes on what is perhaps, one of the most captivating and delightfully disturbing cult TV shows ever made. They feature some of my favourite characters, including the Angel of Death, with her stunningly gothic look, Sister Mary Eunice who's possessed by the devil, Sister Jude and the evil Dr Arden as they shoot their scenes.

'American Horror Story: Asylum' not only pushed boundaries with it's dark, gore filled story-lines but also with the wonderful concept of creating new and altogether different roles for the regular cast members we've all come to know and love. It is fascinating to watch the show and see characters from previous series return to our screens with a whole new plot-line, in the anthology format the show has become so well known for.

I can't wait to see what 'American Horror Story: Coven' holds and which cast members will be returning. We've already had quite a few of the big name cast confirmed, but will there be a few little surprises along the way? I hope to see plenty of familiar faces from series 1&2 make a welcome return to the show.

The fact that one of my all time favourite actresses Kathy Bates will be a significant main character in 'Coven' only adds to my excitement and I can't wait to see her appear alongside Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson and Angela Bassett to name but a few. It should make for some top-notch TV viewing with some seriously talented actors and actresses involved.
