Sadly, Dalton isn’t the only Freak Show star to be involved in a scary accident this year. In February, Ben Woolf, who played Meep on the show, died at the age of 34 after being hit by a car.
The actor was walking across the street in Hollywood when he was hit by a car’s side-view mirror, and four days later, he reportedly suffered a stroke and passed away.
Our thoughts are with Dalton, as well as the entire American Horror Story family, during this time.
