american horror story freak show rose siggins mat fraser erika ervin Meet 'AHS: Freak Show's' Legless Suzy, Paul the Illustrated Seal and Amazon EveFor “American Horror Story: Freak Show” to lend some authenticity to Elsa Mars’ (Jessica Lange) Cabinet of Curiosities, the creators assembled a cast of supporting actors whose unique bodies would have earned them the “freak” label in the show’s time period of the 1950s.

But these extraordinary people are just like everyone else and they’re glad to have the opportunity to show that off on the series. As Rose Siggins, who plays Legless Suzy, says in her interview below, “I can’t imagine being what everybody calls normal because this is my normal.” Mat Fraser (Paul the Illustrated Seal) adds, “I think now, having been here for six weeks, [‘Freak Show’] is going to be one of the most awesome things ever to hit television.”

Below, Siggins, Fraser and Erika Ervin (Amazon Eve) talk about their experiences, both on and off the show. “American Horror Story: Freak Show” premieres Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
