American Horror Story is adding a scene-stealer for Season 8. 

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Joan Collins has been added to the cast of the hit anthology drama in an unspecified role. 

The actress is most well-known for her iconic role as Alexis Carrington on the original Dynasty from 1981 to 1991.

The show failed to pack a punch in the ratings, but all of that changed when Collins debuted during the second season.

It propelled the show to being the number one show on all of TV in 1985. With some of the most iconic fights in TV history, we can only imagine what the producers of American Horror Story have in store for Collins. 

Collins joins a cast that already includes franchise veterans Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.
