Amge, who reportedly hails from India, is 20 years old and holds the title for being the smallest living woman on Earth. She is mentioned in both the Limca Book of Records and the Guinness Book of Records. Amge is 2 feet and 0.6 inches tall.
She will now add another accomplishment to her list, as she gets to show off her acting chops in the fourth season of FX’s hit suspense drama, American Horror Story. This season is set in the 1950s and follows the members of a creepy circus or freak show based in Florida.
Vocal powerhouse Patti LaBelle has also recently joined the cast.
