Ryan Murphy took to Twitter today to announce the newest, and smallest, cast member of American Horror Story’s fourth season, the world’s shortest woman, Jyoti Amge.
The Indian-born Amge is 20 and just over 2 feet tall. She is considered the world’s shortest woman by both the Guiness and Limca books of world records. Amge is not a newcomer to entertainment, however, having appeared both in a 2009 documentary about her called Body Shock and on an Indian reality TV show that’s somewhat similar to Big Brother.
American Horror Story‘s fourth season, subtitled Freak Show, will be set in the traditional circus town of Jupiter, Fla., in 1950, following what even then was one of the country’s few remaining freak shows. Season 4 debuts in October on FX. Here’s Murphy’s tweet of a photograph of Amge with the anthology series’ Emmy-nominated star Jessica Lange:
