Lady Gaga's fiance coached her for TV for debut

Lady Gaga's actor fiance Taylor Kinney was more than supportive when the pop star shared her TV acting dreams, and even offered to coach her as she prepared for her role on American Horror Story: Hotel.

The Born This Way singer made her debut as a series regular on the new thriller on Wednesday (07Oct15) night, and she revealed to E! News that Kinney, star of his own drama Chicago Fire, was "exponentially supportive the entire time" during his fiancee's new project.


"What guy in that scenario would be like, 'Sure, babe, do TV!'", Gaga said. "He does TV, that's his thing. I do music, and you know, we're together. But I sort of was like, 'Is it cool if I do TV?,' And he was like, 'F**k yeah!'"


"He was like, 'We can read scripts together, and we can talk about our characters together, and I can teach you how to be on set!'", she continued. "And he taught me all about etiquette and what actors would appreciate during their coverage (filming on camera). He taught me to make sure that I was always available fully to the actors when I was working so that when the coverage is on them that I don't drop my character, that I'm always in it for them, and you know, that's invaluable advice."


Gaga, who plays a bloodthirsty hotel owner in the series, has already accepted show creator Ryan Murphy's offer to return next season, and the project has reignited the acting bug for the former New York University Tisch School of the Arts student.


"I think I'd like to do like one great acting project a year," Gaga admitted. "I'd really like to do a film now. But it's about the right people, the right project. I want to take some time to write something.


"I want to make a great piece. It's just so not important to just be in acting and music and be that person that does both things. Just having that on my roster is not important to me... The future for me is very good."
