The premiere episode of American Horror Story: Cult, “Election Night”, finds Ally Mayfair-Richards (Sarah Paulson) watching the results of the real 2017 American presidential election with horror. With Donald Trump as president, Ally tells Dr. Vincent (Cheyenne Jackson) that her coulrophobia (fear of clowns) has intensified. She believes she’s being haunted by (what appears to be) Twisty the Clown. Ally’s new neighbor Meadow Wilton (who has fears of her own including of the sun, heliophobia) is in for a shock, too.
Meadow Wilton is portrayed by Leslie Grossman. The LA native actress is known for her roles on Scandal (Lisa), 10 Things I Hate About You (Ms. Darlene Tharp), Nip/Tuck (Bliss Berger), The Jake Effect (Kimmy Ponder), What I Like About You (Lauren), and Popular (Mary Cherry), among others. Grossman is also recognized for her role as Pam in the 2005 film Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous. American Horror Story: Cult premieres Tuesday, September 5 at 10pm on FX.
