Sister Mary Eunice actress Lily Rabe discusses Deadwood actor Ian McShane's upcoming guest role

He was in a Santa suit sucking on a candy cane with a girl on his lap. What is going on there?
Well, I can tell you Ian and I had a lot of amazing Christmas things to do together. Sister Mary Eunice has something to do with why his character is wearing that Santa suit. She has a lot of Christmas spirit, that's for sure.
So there will be a Christmas episode of American Horror Story?
Oh yes. Of course, right? That was one of my favorite ones to shoot, actually. Ian and I got to do some really evil things together, and I have to say it was a career highlight. He's such a wonderful man. We had great stuff in the common room, with all of those background actors, the inmates. I can say Christmas will never be the same for me after shooting that episode. I'll never look at a Christmas tree the same way.
