Zachary Quinto, the 46-year-old actor, has praised Kim Kardashian for her acting skills on the upcoming season of “American Horror Story.” While attending the premiere of his new film “He Went That Way” at the Tribeca Film Festival, Quinto revealed to People that he did a cameo on the same season and got to meet Kardashian, who he said was “lovely and warm.” He further added that Kardashian was “really in her element” and he was impressed by her spirit and openness. Quinto expressed his excitement to see Kardashian’s performance and believes that she will do a wonderful job.

In April, it was announced that the 42-year-old Skims founder would appear in the 12th season of the horror series. The co-creator of the show, Ryan Murphy, welcomed Kardashian to the “AHS” family, calling her one of the biggest and brightest stars in the world. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kardashian will play a role that was specifically written with her in mind. She will join Emma Roberts in the anthology’s newest installment, titled “Delicate,” which is based on Danielle Valentine’s upcoming novel “Delicate Condition.”
