Rose Siggins, an actress seen on "American Horror Story: Freak Show," has died of complications from kidney stone surgery. She was 43.
Known best to television audiences as Legless Suzi from "American Horror Story: Freak Show," Siggins had a rare genetic disorder called sacral agenesis. She was born with severely deformed legs, which doctors amputated when she was a 2-year-old. This condition also caused kidney and pancreas issues for which she was receiving treatment when she died.
A mother of two, Siggins said she was the first woman with sacral agenesis to give birth successfully to children who were not deformed. Her story was profiled on the U.K. Channel 5 series "Extraordinary People."
In addition to acting and raising a family, Siggins had a passion for cars, both as a mechanic and race car driver.
She is survived by her children, Luke and Shelby, and her husband, Dave Siggins.
