American Horror Story’s newest installment, American Horror Story: Freak Show has cast the world’s smallest woman; 20-year-old Jyoti Amge.
Amge is just over 2’ tall and weighs just 11 lbs. Her form of dwarfism is described as achondroplasi, according to Guinness.
AHS creator Ryan Murphy posted a photo of Amge to Twitter with the show’s star, Jessica Lange. “Jessica and our newest cast member Jyoti Amge…the world’s smallest woman,” he wrote.

Amge won’t get any taller than she is right now and was given the title of the “world’s shortest living woman” by Guinness Book of World Records in 2011.
She’s the newest addition to a long list of cast-members for the next season of the show, which is set in the 1950s in Jupiter, Florida.
Patti LaBelle, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson , Michael Chiklis, Wes Bentley, Frances Conroy, and Gabourey Sidibe are among the new and previous cast members.
