Legless Suzi from AHS passes

Update : 13 Dec 2015, 06:47 PM

Rose Siggins, the actress who played the character Legless Suzi in American Horror Story: Freak Show, passed away in Denver on Saturday. Tribute was paid to 43-year-old Rose Siggins on Facebook by the FX Network, saying she was “beloved by everyone in the AHS family.” TMZ reported she died after contracting an infection following kidney stone surgery. “She was a kind person, a loving mother and a very talented actor. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends at this time,” said the post.

The actress was also paid tribute by the fans, who remembered her as “an amazing woman full of strength and determination.”

“Rose you were an inspiration to so many,” posted Danny Ray Seagraves, “you showed that a disability could not get you down. Your character was one of my favourites in AHS. May you rest in peace.”

Siggins was born with rare genetic disorder named Sacral Agenesis, with her legs severely deformed. They were amputated when she was two and she had prosthetic legs until she was a teenager, when she refused to wear them and went to school on a skateboard. She was the first person with her condition to give birth and have two children.

When her mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer, she also took care of her brother, who she described as “mentally challenged,” and her father, who was in the early stages of Alzheimer’s.
