"If we could ever schedule it, I would definitely love to. Ryan and I have talked about it; it's a little tough shooting a series in Nashville and they're shooting 'Horror Story' right now. But if we could pull it off, I know we will try to do that," she told THR.

"American Horror Story: Asylum" premieres Wednesday at 10 p.m. on FX.
