Jyoti Amge was born in 1993 in India. When she turned 18 she was deemed the world's smallest living woman by the Guiness Book of Records. She is officially two-and-a-half-feet tall. Amge's height is due to achondroplasia, a type of dwarfism.
She has appeared as a guest on "Bigg Boss 6" in India and in the 2009 documentary "Body Shock: Two Foot High Teen."
Amge will star on "American Horror Story: Freak Show" this October. The new season will be set in the 1950s and will take place in Florida.
Returning cast members include Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy. New cast members include Michael Chiklis and Wes Bentley.
