American Horror Story star Ben Woolf has died in the hospital while recovering from surgery to repair injuries he sustained after he was struck by a car in Los Angeles.
The 34-year-old actor’s head was clipped by a car’s wing mirror while he was crossing a street on February 19, and he was admitted to a hospital in critical condition.
Woolf underwent surgery and was believed to be out of danger, but he passed away earlier today after suffering a stroke.
Woolf was diagnosed with pituitary dwarfism when he was an infant. The condition caused his frame to shrink.
His film credits include Dead Kansas, Unlucky Charms and Woggie, but he’ll best be remembered as Meep and Infantata in American Horror Story. He has been a semi-regular on the show since 2011. Woolf was also a preschool teacher.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Ben’s family and friends.
