A few weeks ago, reports surfaced that "American Horror Story" bosses were searching for the perfect actress to play a new leading role in the show's second season. The character's name is Gia, and she has been described as a sexy wild child. Now the search is officially over, and Ryan Murphy has selected French actress Lizzie Brochere as his new bad girl! If the name is unfamiliar to you, you're not alone. Brochere has been acting for more than 10 years, but this will be her biggest break to date. Now the role of Gia has been cast, it's time to speculate about what her role will be. Here is a look at some of the speculations and possibilities:
Jessica Lange's arch nemesis
One of the biggest rumors of the moment is that Gia is going to be the enemy of Jessica Lange's new character. In Season 1, Lange played Constance, who was engaged in a rivalry with Moira the maid (Alexandra Breckenridge), and the fireworks really flew! For Season 2, Lange's new character is set to be the complete opposite of Constance, so it will be fascinating to see how someone less riddled with evil will clash with Gia, who is going to be sexual and ferocious!
The solo home wrecker
The only thing as prominent as horror in the show, is the high level of sexual content. By all accounts, Gia embodies all things sexual, so perhaps the biggest part of her role will be destroying families. In Season 1, Ben Harmon (Dylan McDermott) debatably ruined his family by having an affair. It wouldn't be too big a stretch for Gia to be a more devious, deliberately cruel home wrecker.
The other half to Adam Levine's character
When Adam Levine confirmed his appearance on "American Horror Story," female fans of the show rejoiced. Reports suggested that Levine's character will be one half of a pairing knows as "The Lovers." There hasn't been any news on who will play his other half, but if Gia becomes that person, Season 2 is going to sizzle! Even if Gia and Levine only have a brief fling, it will up the tension levels and give viewers something to talk about.
It is a risk to cast an unknown as a lead character, but Ryan Murphy has never let us down before. Whatever he has planned for Lizzie Brochere as Gia, it is guaranteed to be controversial, dramatic, and shocking. After all, that's what "American Horror Story" does best!
