Kathy Bates

The Butcher from American Horror Story: Roanoke

Played by Agnes Mary Winstead (Kathy Bates) in American Horror Story: Roanoke, The Butcher is a centuries-old bloodthirsty woman responsible for the deaths of the original Roanoke colonists before taking her own life. She still haunts the land, demanding the bloody death of anyone who dares to settle there or wander in her forest. Agnes plays The Butcher in a modern-day horror TV reenactment about one couple who faced The Butcher and lived, but Agnes quickly becomes just as insane as the original Butcher. The Butcher wears traditional colonial garb stained in dirt, mud and blood.
