Rose Siggins, American Horror Story’s legless Suzi, dies at the young age of 43.
Siggins’ manager informed fans on Friday that the actress was “in the hospital and the outlook on her current health is grim.”
According to reports, Siggins’ manager, James Mullen told The Hollywood Reporter after planning a Go Fund Me page for the actress’ children. “I’m sad to report that Rose has passed away this morning around 7:30am. All funds raised will now be directed to final expenses and the continuing support of her children,” he wrote.
The post continued: “I suppose Elsa Mars said it best: ‘The death of a beloved monster is always a sorrow, but never a surprise. If oddly-formed organs or a random physical anomaly doesn’t claim them, then it is at the sheer density of their blaze. A carny’s life burns and brighter than most. It is bound to extinguish sooner.'”
American Horror Story producers and FX Networks issued a statement about the death of the Freak Show star saying: “”We are saddened to learn of the passing of Rose Siggins. She was beloved by everyone in the AHS family. She was a kind person, a loving mother and a very talented actor. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends at this time.”
The actress, who did not have legs, appeared as herself in several TV shows including Ripley’s Believe It or Not and Extraordinary People, before landing her role on Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story as legless Suzi.
