American Horror Story Tragedy

Julia Johnston

Actor, Ben Woolf, who portrayed Meep passed away last week

Ben Woolf, who plays Meep on American Horror Story: Freak Show, died last week far too soon at 34 years old.

The side mirror of a passing SUV struck the actor in the head while he was crossing a street in Hollywood. Woolf underwent immediate surgery and moved into stable, yet critical condition, but tragically passed shortly after.

The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene of the incident. No charges will be made because Woolf was jaywalking.

American Horror Story creator, Ryan Murphy and FX are partially funding Ben Woolf’s memorial service held by his family in Santa Barbara on March 21. The Woolfs, who invited the whole AHS cast, suggested all attendees honor Ben, by donning blue or red to the service; his favorite colors. Ben Woolf and his talent will be missed, our condolences go out to the Woolf family.
