Angelica Ross Says American Horror Story Contract Prevented Her From Getting Other Acting Jobs

With actors and writers currently on strike fighting for a living wage, we're starting to see more actors coming out of the woodwork to share their stories.

Actress Angelica Ross, best known for her role as Candy Wintour/Ferocity on the FX series Pose is opening up about why we haven't seen her acting as much.

The actress revealed on Instagram that being stuck in a seven-year contract with FX caused her to lose several acting gigs, including appearing in a project for Marvel Studios.

"I was under a 7 year contract with FX in what they call “first position”. As a series regular, I could not work anywhere else without getting network approval. While working on AHS season 10 I was told I would be returning to Season 11 and was put on hold for several months. During this time Marvel called a few times asking about my availability. By the time FX released me, Marvel stopped calling. Now it’s been years since I have had an acting job. This is also why we are striking." #UnionStrong#SAGAFTRAstrike

The role in question Angelica ended up losing was for the Disney Plus series Loki which three years ago was reportedly looking to introduce the MCU’s first transgender superhero, a warrior named Sera. At the time Ross was rumored to be a contender for the role, which would have been a huge and groundbreaking opportunity for the actress.

Actors are currently striking for better pay, residual pay via streaming, and not to have their likeness used in the form of AI without their permission.
