Can You Tell Why Connie Britton Is Scared In These Photos?

I'm sure that Ryan Murphy cast Connie Britton in the first installment of American Horror Story back in 2011 for her many, many talents. But it probably helped that Connie Britton is really good at looking scared. As Vivien in AHS: Murder House, she had plenty to be horrified by with a cheating husband, being haunted by ghosts that she didn't know were ghosts, giving birth to Satan's baby, yadda yadda yadda. But as I've watched Britton in oh-so-many other TV shows, I realized that she has a gift for looking truly terrified.

Whether she's putting her hand over her mouth in shock or getting wide-eyed, Britton displays just how much range the singular emotion of fear can have. So I ask you: Can you tell if Britton is scared in the below images because she's in the Murder House? Or, is she just acting frightened in one of her many other roles? Let's see what this scream queen's got to offer... and no cheating by looking at her IMDb page or Tate will get you.

1. Oh, the Horror or...

I'm scared just looking at how scared Britton is.

2. Oh, the Horror or...

She's in a car and she's shifty-eyed.

3. Oh, the Horror or...

She's been out in the sun with all those freckles.

4. Oh, the Horror or...

She's particularly horrified in this one.

5. Oh, the Horror or...

Note the hair color.

6. Oh, the Horror or...

Britton hears a noise.

7. Oh, the Horror or...

Whatever's below her can't be good.

8. Oh, the Horror or...

Something horrifying is on the horizon.

9. Oh, the Horror or...

What's with the glasses, Britton?

10. Oh, the Horror or...

The terror's causing her physical pain.

11. Oh, the Horror or...

She's a little teary.

12. Oh, the Horror or...

Don't let the sunglasses fool you... there's fear in those eyes.

13. Oh, the Horror or...

Who's got Britton cornered? I demand to know!

Answers

1. Oh, the Horror or...

The Horror! Wielding whatever she can get her hands on when the ghosts are messing with her is classic Vivien.

2. Oh, the Horror or...

The Horror! Vivien's not so keen on going back into the house. Who can blame her?!

3. Oh, the Horror or...

Not the Horror! A throwback to when Britton was on 24.

4. Oh, the Horror or...

The Horror! Complete with Viven's signature nightie. That's the face of a woman who just shot her husband.

5. Oh, the Horror or...

Not the Horror! But Britton had a pretty scary husband in Dirty John.

6. Oh, the Horror or...

The Horror! Vivien's got a knife and she's not afraid to use it.

7. Oh, the Horror or...

The Horror! Even when she reprised her role as Vivien for AHS: Apocalypse, she still had her knife.

8. Oh, the Horror or...

Not the Horror! Tami Taylor just watched the star quarterback of the Dillon Panthers take a life-altering hit in Friday Night Lights.

9. Oh, the Horror or...

Not the Horror! The glasses gave her away, but this is when dispatcher Abby returned to 9-1-1.

10. Oh, the Horror or...

Not the Horror! This time the knife's been pulled on Britton as Rayna in Nashville.

11. Oh, the Horror or...

Not the Horror! A bit of a trick question since it's from a movie — Promising Young Woman — and not a TV show. But Carey Mulligan had shaken Britton to her core.

12. Oh, the Horror or...

The Horror! Ah, it's a rare day out of the Murder House for Vivien with Marcy the realtor.

13. Oh, the Horror or...

The Horror! Instead of her handy-dandy knife, Vivien opted for a golf club when it seemed Hayden put her dog in the microwave.
