Kim Kardashian surprised fans in April with her role in the 12th season of "American Horror Story."
The reality star will appear in the upcoming season alongside "AHS" veteran Emma Roberts.
Also making an appearance is Zachary Quinto, who said Kardashian was "in her element" on set.
Quinto, who has starred in three seasons of the show, announced at the Tribeca Film Festival that he's making a cameo on the 12th season of "AHS," a horror anthology created by Ryan Murphy that's been on the air for over a decade.
Season 12, titled "Delicate," is partly based on Danielle Valentine's upcoming novel "Delicate Condition," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The book, according to Amazon, is about "a woman convinced a sinister figure is going to great lengths to make sure her pregnancy never happens―while the men in her life refuse to believe a word she says."
According to People Magazine, Quinto gave reporters insight into what it was like working with the reality star at the film festival, taking place in New York City from June 7 to June 18.
"She was so lovely and warm and, really, I don't think she needs my advice," Quinto said. "She seemed really in her element, and I was really impressed by her spirit and her openness."
"I really look forward to seeing this season because I think she's gonna do a wonderful job," he added.
However, not everyone has been as receptive to Kardashian joining the series as Quinto. "AHS" actor Patti LuPone, who starred in seasons 3 and 11 of the show, criticized the reality star's involvement during her "Watch What Happens Live" with Andy Cohen in April, Complex reported.
"Excuse me, Kim. What are you doing with your life? Don't get on the stage," LuPone said.
"It's really fun to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new and grow," Kardashian said. "It's a challenge. I like to challenge myself."
