"American Horror Story: Freak Show" star Ben Woolf died on Monday at the age of 34, reports TMZ.

A source close to the actor, who played Meep on the F/X series, told the website that Woolf suffered a stroke at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after he was hit in the head by a passing car's mirror while he was crossing a street in Hollywood last week.

A rep for the actor confirmed his death and told E! News in statement, "Ben was one-of-a-kind, and will never be forgotten. The time we all shared together will be remembered forever."

Woolf's family told TMZ, "We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from all over the world for our beloved Ben. He touched so many hearts in his 34 years."

Shortly after news of Woolf's death broke, "American Horror Story" showrunner Ryan Murphy tweeted his condolences:

RIP Ben Woolf. One of the most inspirational people I've ever met. http://t.co/3mlXoNhOM3
