Jyoti Amge – a 20-year-old from Nagpur, India, whom Guinness has declared to be the world's shortest woman – has been cast in the drama's fourth season, dubbed Freak Show.
The action will center on a Florida carnival in the 1950s.
As a preview, Ryan Murphy, the drama's executive producer, Tweeted a photo of Amge in the arms of series regular Jessica Lange.
Amge stands 2'06" tall and has a genetic disorder called achondroplasia. After being measured by Guinness, Amge reportedly announced that she wished to pursue a career in acting – and she certainly picked a great place to start!

The new season of AHS will kick off in October.
