Sister Jude Martin is a character from the second season of the television series American Horror Story (Asylum), and is portrayed by Jessica Lange. She is a nun in charge of Briarcliff, a mental institution.

Jude has a terrible secret from her past that helped her to find God. She fights a drinking problem and her attraction to the Monsignor... Jude is flawed but she does her best to live by rules and enforce these rules on others in her care.

At first you will not find Jude easy to sympathize with, in fact, you will call her the villain. But over the course of the season, you come to see another as the villain and actually route for Jude.
