An actress known for her role on the FX drama series “American Horror Story: Freak Show” died Saturday. E! News reports that Rose Siggins, who played Legless Suzi on the series, died in a Denver hospital after experiencing complications from kidney stone surgery. She was 43.
“Siggins, often dubbed the ‘World’s Smallest Mom,’ was born with sacral agenesis, a rare disorder marked by a deformation of the spine, and had her legs amputated when she was 2,” the story reports. “She grew up in Pueblo, Colorado. During her childhood, she tried walking with prosthetic limbs but found them too painful, so she later started using a skateboard to get around.”
Siggins’ “AHS” co-stars were paying tribute to her in a series of online posts. On Twitter, cast member Sarah Paulson wrote: “The AHS family lost one of our own…Rose Siggins was an absolute light…I will never forget your laugh or your beautiful eyes.”
