Showrunner Ryan Murphy announced via Twitter today that Jyoti Amge, who holds the Guiness Book of World Records title for “world’s smallest woman,” is the “newest cast member” of FX’s outré-scary anthology series — and included a photo of the actress alongside series star Jessica Lange.

The latest edition of AHS (premiering this fall) centers on the last freak show in America circa 1952 and also stars franchise vets Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, Gabourey Sidibe and Frances Conroy. New to the mix are Michael Chiklis, playing a strongman who’s married to Bassett’s character, as well as guest stars Wes Bentley, Patti LaBelle and Finn Wittrock.

  19. Heidi says:

    So cool to see Jyoti is getting a life time wish. I read about her a few weeks ago and she said she wishes to be an actress. She is very pretty and has a beautiful soul.

    • Sam says:

      Exactly great stuff, presumably she has a say in the matter for all those saying she is being exploited, as long as she fully understands what she is doing and is getting paid then she is the same as the rest of us…good for her I saying, playing to her strengths is smart.

  20. Letie Cruz says:

    Love her already ,can’t wait

  21. shante says:

    The lady that is 2′ tall is 20 years old. Just google her name. Duh. Lol

  22. lisa says:

    When’s it start again

  23. mrorange says:

    Her hands are huge. Bigger than her face. They are definitely not Jessica Lange’s real life hands.

  24. Ebony says:

    This is going to be an epic season. I’m looking forward to the guaranteed plot twist, gooey scenes and truly amazing story lines. 💋💋💋 #loveamericanhorrorstory

  37. Mallory eldridge says:

    I think she is beautiful. I’m a little person but by far she is the smallest and most wonderful looking little person I’ve ever seen. With out that women next to her, I would’ve never guessed. I wiipsve thought she was another Indian beauty. I’m so happy I found out about her! She’s so pretty!

  38. reese says:

    FOrget the midget, whats up with those hands?🙊🙊

  39. Nina says:

    I hate it when people call these unique individuals a freak show. God made them this way for a reason and it was to teach the world tolerance. Not everyone was born a model. If it was it would be a pretty boring world. Not everyone was born beautiful either. God gives us certain gifts but they are not the same as someone else. This show sounds ridiculous to me and judgemental.

  40. Shawn Dykman says:

    2 beautiful, amazing ladies!
    I look forward to watching more AHS

  41. Nina says:

    I hate when people call these unique individuals a freak show. God made them this way for a reason and it was to teach the world tolerance. Everybody was blessed with a different gift and not all of us is meant to be beautiful. This show sounds ridiculous to me and judgemental.

    • Veronica says:

      We heard you the first time Nina get off your soapbox.

      • Kim says:

        AHS is always about the underdog. Nina clearly hasn’t watched it, if she did she’d know that we’ll be seeing the freakshow from the “freak”‘s perspectives.

    • pete says:

      Its based in the past, that’s why its called freak show you retard! There were loads of them around back in the day, that’s where the title comes from! Learn some history before you type!

  42. Melody says:

    That amazing thing to hear for a woman so small i love to meet I’m sure she have a great heart and she have a great smile

  43. whitney says:

    Can not wait!

  44. kathy m. says:

    Seriously, I didn’t even notice Jessica Lange’s hands until I read the comments, but now that you mention it, with all the air brushing couldn’t they make her hands look better…
    .. the little lady is cute… looking forward to seeing this….

  45. Wendy Hartline says:

    She is adorable.

    How sweet.

    I cant wait to see her.

  46. Jack Moore says:

    omg. is she a real person? don’t ever say the wee people weren’t based on fact to me again. and ahs should probably do a show about them, now.

  47. mcrocksxoxo says:

    I am actually really excited and happy for this woman. She is not letting her disorder and her record define her. She is expanding her world into acting! I only hope they approached her respectfully about the role and that she has a good sense of humor about the name of the show.

  48. Her hands look big, but it has something to do with the camera and depth.

    My family took a pic before getting on the Alcatraz cruise with my youngest son in front if me, I had my hand on his shoulder. In the finished print my hand looked enormous. I hate that pic, lol

  49. trisha says:

    Awesome!!!! Can’t wait!!!

  50. Alisa says:

    I love AHS, The Coven was amazing last season, it’s going to be hard to top.
    But with once again amazing cast for Freak Show I can’t wait. LOVE IT!
