Kim Kardashian, renowned for her larger-than-life presence in the entertainment arena, has stirred buzz with her latest venture: a dramatic role in FX’s acclaimed series, “Delicate.” At 42, the reality TV sensation embodies Siobhan Corbyn, a sharp-witted publicist, earning unexpected applause and drawing intriguing parallels to her public image.
Transitioning from Reality to Scripted Drama
When Kim first unveiled her dive into scripted TV, eyebrows raised. Without a history in acting, her capability was met with scepticism. Yet, as “Delicate” episodes unfurled, she turned sceptics into supporters, especially resonating with avid American Horror Story (AHS) followers. Many see a mirror between Kim’s portrayal of Siobhan and her real-life demeanour, drawing jestful comments about her “playing herself.” This perceived authenticity, though, seems to be the charm, with numerous viewers lauding her performance.
On X, the rebranded Twitter, reactions were abundant. “@KimKardashian is doing the damn thing on American Horror Story idc what anyone says,” one admirer professed. Expressions like “Kim Kardashian was the best addition to AHS possible” became commonplace.
Contrarily, some viewers who approached her acting stint with trepidation were pleasantly taken aback. Commendations flowed for Kim’s prowess, and several fans celebrated her for showing depth beyond her public image. “I love when gorgeous women prove to people they are more than just a pretty face,” a supporter exclaimed.
Mixed Reactions and Future Endeavors
However, not all feedback leaned positive. A few viewers bemoaned Kim’s addition to the cast, with some indicating her presence as a reason to skip episodes and others being more direct in their criticisms.
The show’s trajectory and Kim’s character arc keep audiences tethered in anticipation. Whether this acting endeavor solidifies her position in dramatic roles or becomes a brief detour in her illustrious career, Kim Kardashian has undeniably made an imprint. She continues to sway both fervent fans and staunch skeptics with this bold move in her repertoire.
