Paris Jackson landed her role in the American Horror Story spinoff with help from family friend Macaulay Culkin.
The Home Alone star, who was a friend of Paris' late father Michael Jackson, offered some acting advice ahead of her audition.
"They were very, very uptight about the NDAs and things like that," she told E! News. "But I did figure, he signed an NDA, he's in the AHS family. I feel like if I could tell anyone, it would be him."

Macaulay, 40, is set to star in the 10th series of the horror franchise, American Horror Story: Double Feature when it launches next month.
Paris, 23, relayed the advice she had received as she shared: "He said overdo it at certain points. Kind of like, overact and kind of make it theatrical."
She features in two episodes of the spinoff, American Horror Stories, which premiered in the US last week.
Paris said she and Macaulay had also exchanged gory selfies from set, explaining: "I sent him a picture of my face covered in blood and then he sent me a picture of blood in his hair. It was cute."
The former child actor is godfather to Paris as well as her two siblings, Prince and Blanket (known as Bigi). Their father Michael died suddenly in 2009.
He and Paris have appeared to maintain a good relationship over the years, even getting matching tattoos back in 2017.
The pair both got a spoon inked onto their forearms with the meaning stemming from Macaulay's penchant for swiping spoons from restaurants, airplanes and cafes.
