Kim Kardashian has a bunch of career paths under her belt. From studying law to starring in her hit reality TV shows, Keeping Up With the Kardashians and The Kardashians, the entrepreneur is a busy bee. Kim has also acted in a handful of TV shows and movies, but perhaps her most notable is her role on season 12 of American Horror Story, which premiered in September 2023.
What Acting Roles Has Kim Kardashian Starred in?
After gaining worldwide fame in the early 2000s, Kim made her feature film debut in the 2008 parody film, Disaster Movie, in which she portrayed Lisa Taylor, who gets struck by a meteor. In 2013, Kim landed the role of Ava in the romantic drama Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.
Aside from onscreen characters, the SKKN founder has also dipped into voice acting roles. Kim played the sassy poodle Delores in PAW Patrol: The Movie in 2021, and she is expected to reprise her role in the upcoming animated sequel, PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie.
“I think the character Delores fits me perfectly,” she explained during a previous behind-the-scenes video from the first film. “My kids love Paw Patrol, so it makes me so proud that I’m one of the voices. They are so excited.”
What Is Kim Kardashian’s Part in ‘American Horror Story’ Season 12?
In April 2023, the makeup mogul dropped the bombshell that she joined the cast of the anthology thriller show American Horror Story for season 12. Kim shared an Instagram video at the time of a teaser trailer, which only revealed series star Emma Roberts and Kim’s names while an eerie rendition of “Rock-a-Bye Baby” played in the background. Emma portrayed multiple characters throughout the anthology series after she first joined the show in 2013 for the Coven season, followed by Freak Show, Cult, Apocalypse and 1984.
Kim’s Instagram clip also revealed the name of the season: Delicate.
Emma reshared the same clip and captioned her post, “This summer … Kim and I are DELICATE.”
One month later, the new dynamic duo was spotted filming scenes on what appeared to be a rooftop, according to a video shared via Instagram by Deux Moi.
In June 2023, American Horror Story alum Zachary Quinto spoke at the Tribeca Film Festival about how Kim is doing on the show so far while confirming that he has a cameo in season 12.
“I did a cameo on this season of American Horror Story and I got to meet her,” Zachary said, per People. “She was so lovely and warm and, really, I don’t think she needs my advice. 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.”
Us Weekly reported on June 28 that Kim was “ecstatic” to begin production on the show.
“This is an experience of a lifetime, and Kim can’t wait for everyone to see the final product,” a source told the outlet. “Kim is keeping tightlipped about her role on AHS because she wants it to be a huge surprise once it’s out. She is taking this very seriously and although she’s been a bit nervous because she really wants to nail her performance, all the cast and crew have been incredibly welcoming and a pleasure to work with.”
What Other Acting Projects Has Kim Announced?
American Horror Story isn’t the only Ryan Murphy production that Kim plans to participate in! In December 2023, it was revealed that the Hulu star and AHS creator were working on a new “sexy adult” scripted legal drama.
Kim is set to star as Los Angeles’ most successful divorce lawyer and owner of an all-female firm in the unnamed production, according to Dateline.
The network is hoping to start production in 2024, with a premiere planned in 2025.
What Movies Does Kim Kardashian Want to Star in?
In September 2022, the Skims founder teased that she would accept an onscreen acting role if it was the right one for her.
“Would I act? I would if something fun came about,” she told Interview magazine at the time, adding, “Maybe a Marvel movie, that would be so fun to do.”
Although she added at the time that she was “not actively looking,” Kim concluded that “things just come when they’re supposed to.”
