Stevie Nicks talks 'American Horror Story: Coven' and links to witchcraft

By Gina DiFalco,

Stevie Nicks will appear in Wednesday night’s American Horror Story: Coven episode, called “The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks." In an new interview, Nicks is talking about her appearance on the show.

While talking to the LA Times about her part, she said, “I’m extremely nervous. I want to run away and hide forever,” adding, “I am not an actress.”

She’s worked with showrunners Ryan Murphy and Brad Falcuk on Glee before, so she was comfortable with them. Despite her unease, when she found out her Fleetwod Mac tour would be cut short due to bassist John McVie’s cancer diagnosis, she had some free time to do an episode, E! Online reports.

Nicks, who has been long rumored to be a witch, also said she wasn’t going to pass on this opportunity just because of the pesky rumors.

“I wouldn’t have done this 30 years ago. In the beginning of my career, the whole idea that some wacky, creepy people were writing, 'You’re a witch, you’re a witch!' was so arresting. And there I am like, ‘No, I’m not! I just wear black because it makes me look thinner you idiots,’” she explained.

She added, “So when all this came along, I was like, 'What, really, am I going to turn this down because of all that past nonsense?' I’m way too old and I’ve been through way too much to give up an opportunity like this. I’m fearless.”
