Kim Kardashian has made her first official acting debut in the premiere of the award-winning anthology series, American Horror Story alongside Emma Roberts and Cara Delevingne – and she’s killing it!

Season 12 of American Horror Story: Delicate is based on Danielle Valentine’s horror fiction, Delicate Condition.

It follows Anna Victoria Alcott, a breakthrough actress in New York, who is adjusting to fame whilst desperately trying to have a family.

With many failed IVF attempts and her nightmares becoming a reality, Anna has convinced herself that someone is determined to make her life a living hell. Spooky!

Siobhan Corbyn is a hustling publicist, and her character was literally written to be played by Kim.

They’re both fun, stylish, high-maintenance girl bosses, which is why fans think Kim is embodying the role so well!

Her obvious influence over the character and her acting abilities have left critics raving about her portrayal, which some were unsure of when the casting was announced.

Kim revealed the role on her Instagram earlier this year and received huge backlash, from not only frustrated fans, but other actors on the show too.

AHS actor Patti LuPone expressed her frustration at Kim, sharing that a reality TV star shouldn’t be taking the role away from a working actor. On Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Patti said, “Excuse me, Kim, what are you doing with your life?…Don’t get on stage”.

Despite all the criticism she received, it seems like Kim has surprised the masses, as many took to social media to share their delight at her brilliant performance.

One fan took to Twitter saying “Kim Kardashian is eating this AHS role!!! She can literally do anything”.

Someone else praised the star’s acting and expressed how she deserves an Oscar for her skills…we totally agree!

Bring on the new weekly dose of Kardashian in American Horror Story.
