We thought his name looked familiar, went looking, and yes, he played the heart-stoppingly frightening “Infantata” on American Horror Story Murder House (Season One). Maybe this will jog your memory:
He was pretty harmless (except to the chicken population) on Freak Show, and in fact, a sympathetic character. Not so much in Season One, where his character would turn you hair white with fear and traumatize you for life… but don’t worry, he/she/it would very likely just rip out your throat and kill you, so no worries about post-traumatic stress! Just try to make it out the door first… because when you die in the Murder House, you don’t get to leave.
