Rose Siggins, who played Legless Suzy on American Horror Story: Freak Show, has died. She was 43.
Siggins died Saturday morning in a Denver hospital. She was hospitalized Monday for a kidney stone surgery and contracted a fatal infection during her stay.
Siggins had a congenital genetic disorder called sacral agenesis, where the spinal bone called the sacrum doesn't form properly. Her legs were amputated when she was 2 years old.
In addition to her AHS role, Siggins appeared as herself on Ripley's Believe It or Not and Extraordinary People.
Siggins is survived by two children. A GoFundMe has been founded to help them through this difficult time.
