World's Smallest Woman Joins Cast Of US Show

The world's smallest woman has joined the cast of television programme American Horror Story.

The new addition for the fourth season of the US show was announced by the creator Ryan Murphy on Twitter.

Murphy tweeted a photo showing actress Jessica Lange posing with Jyoti Amge, who is just two feet tall.

"Jessica and our newest cast member Jyoti Amge ... the world's smallest woman," he wrote.

The India-born 20-year-old is considered the world's smallest woman by both the Guiness and Limca books of world records.

Her restricted height is due to a growth anomaly called achondroplasia.

Amge is not a stranger to the entertainment business. In 2009 she starred in the documentary Body Shock: Two Foot High Teen.

The next season of American Horror Story is set in a traditional circus town of Jupiter, Florida, in 1950.
