Opening Night Of Ben Woolf, an actor best known for his appearances on "American Horror Story," has died after being hit by a car last week. He was 34.

Woolf was struck in the head by a SUV mirror while crossing the street in Hollywood last Thursday. He was rushed to a local hospital, where he remained in critical condition until his death on Monday.

The 4'4" actor had appeared in five episodes of "AHS," beginning with the horror anthology series's first season, in which he played the character Infantata. His most recent credit on the show was as "Freak Show" member Meep, who can utter only his name when he speaks.

"AHS" creator Ryan Murphy offered an online tribute to Woolf, writing on Twitter that the late actor was "one of the most inspirational people I've ever met." Woolf's family also released a statement about his passing.

"We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from all over the world for our beloved Ben," the statement said. "He touched so many hearts in his 34 years. His memory will live on within each of us and within his work."
