Elizabeth / The Countess (Lady Gaga)
In Season 5 of the anthology series, American Horror Story: Hotel, Elizabeth was a failed actress who was turned into a vampire by her male lover, and eventually becoming the powerful Countess, a glamorous but deadly creature who sustained herself on a healthy diet of sex and blood. Initially involved in love triangle between Hollywood star Rudolph Valentino and his wife Natacha Rambova, she then married depraved hotel owner James March as a means of acquiring wealth, as Rudolph was then presumed dead.
The Countess met actress Ramona Royale at the hotel and began a sexual relationship with her, promising her that they would be together forever. As years progressed, however, they drifted apart and eventually Ramona found a man that she thought to be the love of her life, Prophet Moses. When the Countess found out, she killed him and broke Ramona’s heart. The Countess often spent her time bringing back people to the Hotel Cortez to have sex with and kill along with her former heroin addict and lover Donovan as her partner in crime. She left Donovan after 20 years for a new lover, Tristan Duffy, but later killed Duffy and married Will Drake.
In the season finale, the Countess was shot and beheaded by Detective John Lowe, after an assassination plot which involved many of the other main series characters.
