A recent Reddit thread shed some light on how much “American Horror Story” fans like each of Emma Roberts’ characters. Her portrayal of Madison Montgomery in “AHS: Coven” — a teenage Hollywood starlet known for her catty, spiteful tendencies, per Fandom — was the clear winner of an informal poll posted by u/Distinct-Art1207, which asked fellow Redditors to name their favorite Emma Roberts character. Roberts’ turn as the power-hungry, sharp-tongued witch on “Coven” earned more votes than the rest of her other characters combined, and her appearance as Madison in “AHS: Apocalypse” came in second, so it’s obvious that fans simply love Roberts in this role.
In “AHS: Coven,” Madison is part of a group of young witches attending Miss Robichaux’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies in New Orleans. However, while her peers each exhibit a single supernatural power, viewers soon learn that she is a much more formidable force to be reckoned with. Making Madison all the most fun to watch is her wicked sense of humor and complete sense of unapologetic self-entitlement.
