Lourd was announced as a cast member for the upcoming seventh season of AHS earlier this year. She was previously a cast member on Murphy's horror-comedy show Scream Queens. She also had a small role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Lourd has silver-colored hair in the shot, with a floral sun dress and round sunglasses.
"Winter is coming. Can't wait for everybody to see what the incredible Billie Lourd does this season on AHS," Murphy captioned the photo. It's unclear whether the "winter" comment is a teaser about the actress's character or just a Games of Thrones reference.
The producer has been sharing numerous cryptic photos related to the upcoming season as of late, including a look at a monster for the series.
