Ben Woolf, who played Meep on “American Horror Story”: Freak Show, has died in a Los Angeles hospital on Monday afternoon. He was 34.
Woolf died of a stroke this afternoon, after being hit in the head by a moving SUV’s side-view mirror last week.
A source revealed Woolf had been heavily sedated at Cedars Sinai Hospital since the accident.
Woolf’s rep confirmed over the weekend that he was in “critical but stable condition.”
Fans hoped that the actor would make a full recovery.
Ben Woolf’s rep said in a statement, “Ben was one-of-a-kind, and will never be forgotten. The time we all shared together will be remembered forever.”
Woolf’s family said, “We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from all over the world for our beloved Ben. He touched so many hearts in his 34 years. His memory will live on within each of us and within his work.”
Woolf, who was 4 feet 4 inches tall and played the character Meep on Freak Show, was hit in the head by a car mirror Thursday night as he was crossing a street in Hollywood.
He was taken to a hospital where he remained in critical condition until he passed away today.
The driver of the car involved in the incident was not ticketed because Woolf was jaywalking, LAPD previously confirmed.
This is just so sad. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family, friends, and co-stars.
