FX, which airs American Horror Story, issued a statement calling Woolf “a tremendous professional and an incredibly kind person” who was “beloved by the American Horror Story family.”

According to authorities, Woolf was hit by a car while crossing the road at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Gramercy Place. The driver in the incident was not charged.

Woolf, who was originally from Fairfield, Iowa, had pituitary dwarfism. He gave up his job as a preschool teacher to become a full-time actor five years ago.
