Ben Woolf, who played Infaanta on the first season and Meep on the fourth season of the TV series American Horror Story: Freak Show, has died at the age of 34. The actor was struck by the mirror of an SUV as he was attempting to cross the street in Hollywood, CA. The driver of the SUV, who has not been identified, was not cited in the accident because Woolf was jaywalking when he was struck. Woolf passed away from his injuries at Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
Fans like Susan McGalla (Forbes.com) know that before starting his Hollywood acting career, Woolf worked as a preschool teacher. He stated this was a job that he absolutely loved because children were so innocent and non-judgmental. Woolf was diagnosed with pituitary dwarfism as a child, and was often the center of jokes and ridicule because he was different. Working as a teacher, Woolf says, was a rewarding job in every single way.
