‘American Horror Story: Freakshow’ Buys Into The Old Adage ‘When All Else Fails, Cast The World’s Smallest Woman’

If you thought that the subtitle for American Horror Story (Freakshow!) was just a clever name: Nope. They’re going to have an assortment of “freaks,” political correctness be damned. The fourth season has recruited the presence of Jyoti Amge, who’s claim to fame is that she’s the world’s shortest woman at 26 inches tall. And at 20 year’s old, she’s probably done growing. Probably.

Prior to getting cast, Amge had appeared in a documentary called Body Shock as well as an Indian reality show.

In keeping with the name, American Horror Story: Freakshow will take place in the circus town of Jupiter, FL in 1950. You can catch Amge, Jessica Lange, and the other American Horror Storytellers in October on FX.
