Rest in Peace – Ben Woolf


Sad news today coming out of Hollywood as “American Horror Story: Freak Show” co-star Ben Woolf has died at the age of 34 due to a head injury sustained while jaywalking.

The actor, who stood 4 feet 4 inches, was struck in the head by the side mirror of a passing car last Thursday, February 19th, at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Gramercy Place. He was taken to at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in critical condition. Police told Deadline the driver pulled over and remained at the scene and was not facing any charges.

Woolf played the lovable Meep, a fan favorite, on the show. He also appeared in Haunting Charles Manson, Dead Kansas and Unlucky Charms. We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to honor the man and offer our sincerest of condolences to his friends, family, and constituents.

Life is a fragile thing, folks. Be careful what you do with yours.
