One of American Horror Story’s most creepy characters is that of season 4’s Twisty the Clown. Played by John Carol Lynch, Twisty was a demented killer who hides his deformed face, caused by his attempted suicide, under a half mask that has looks like a horrifying grin. Twisty became somewhat of a mentor to Dandy (Finn Wittrock) that season.
American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy has now revealed via Instagram that Twisty will be back in the upcoming season. While we are not sure how the clown will fit into season 7 that was inspired by the 2016 election, we are glad to see him returning. He’s a very interesting character.
