Surprise, bitch! Didn't you love Madison's snarky, witchy attitude on "American Horror Story: Coven"? I had a chance to talk to star Emma Roberts about her memorable character during PaleyFest, and while she wouldn't name any real-life stars who inspired the character (darn), she did explain why Madison might feel a little familiar. 

As for next season, we know Roberts will be back -- and "Freak Show" will be set in Florida in the 1950s. I thought the cute bob might have been for her character, but, as Roberts informed me, I was reading into it. But hey, nice 'do anyway!

What did you think of Madison on "American Horror Story"?
