In the latest featurettes for ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show‘ we are introduced to two of the new cast members who are being introduced this season. Both of them have issues with limbs, one with a deformity and another who has a couple missing. It seems only fitting for the show that we’ll some of the “freaks” played by actors who may have been considered that exact term at one point in their lives.
In the first of the two new featurettes for ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ we are introduced to Paul The Illustrated Seal who is played by Mat Fraser.
Mat was born with phocomelia which is the disease that was responsible for his limbs. It is a condition that for many would get them down but according to Fraser, “For me, when you’re disabled, the two things people think you can’t do are fight and have sex. So I’ve got a black belt, and I’m really good at shagging.”
Next up we have the video that introduced us to Legless Suzy who is portrayed by Rose Siggins. Unlike Mat she wasn’t born with her condition though she did lose her legs as a child.
It is a great introduction to two of the new actors and as the show is known for including previous season actors you have to wonder if they’ll find a way to bring them back for the next season as well.
