Paulson first played the psychic in AHS's first season Murder House and is currently starring in Hotel as the deceased addict Sally. When Billie Dean arrives at the Cortez, we learn that she's now starring in a psychic reality show and hopes to do an episode at the haunted hotel.
This is the third announced character from Murder House appearing in Hotel following the realtor Marcy and Dr. Montgomery. Paulson is also not the only actor playing dual roles this season. Finn Wittrock has played both supermodel Tristan Duffy and movie star Rudolph Valentino.
