R.I.P Leslie Jordan.

I’m devastated to have found out today that little Leslie died from a cardiac arrest on the 24th October last year.

May he rest in peace. πŸ•―

He was 67 years of age.

Hooray - Cricket has come to the rescue in finding Flora, the missing niece of the house owners. Cricket Marlowe has a great success rate tracking down missing children, but in this instance, he has hidden powers. He can communicate with spirits, which is imperative in a case such as this.

I swear I heard Lady Gaga calling him a little man, but I very much doubt that he minds. He has strengths in many other respects, and his acting is a delight!

Four eleven. πŸ˜€

I do remember him appearing on the wendy Williams show and stood next to her and he was way below her shoulder in heels but then she can be 6ft 2 in heels so I doubt he would be under 4ft 11

This morning Leslie was on the Ellen show - minus the Ellen bit! He looked small as he sat in his huge chair, and not much taller when he stood up to dance!

Lovely guy, and 4ft11 tall. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

I think the way you worded it, sounded like you were mocking his height, at least maybe that's what Sandy thought.

Here's a little Christmas Comment for Leslie, together with a guess for 4ft11.

He's tall in terms of personality.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/May/20
Small in stature Andy, sure, but a terrific actor! πŸ˜πŸ‘

My AHS Season 9, entitled '1984', arrived this afternoon. Leslie Jordan stars as a chap named Courtney and is requested by the other series regular called Leslie, Leslie Grossman, to dispose of a bus full of dead bodies - yuck!

He protests in a distraught and weepy voice, "I'm a small diminutive man." 😭

He certainly is rather tiny, there's no denying that, and the brown 80s wig just emphasizes that fact. It drowns him!

It was a lovely surprise to see him making an appearance in '1984'.

4ft11 πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ’•

πŸŽπŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰ Happy Birthday Leslie! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸŽ

A Very Happy 65th Birthday to Leslie Jordan, the tiniest member of the excellent American Horror Story cast. Have a great day, Leslie!

@ Littlelee5ft6 - Great idea!

Leslie is a great guy and he is honest too!

around a foot shorter than my morning height
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Mar/20
He might be 4'10 1/2 now. An honest 6'2 guy will look like a giant next to him.

@ Sandy Cowell - Many thanks, β€œCoven” and β€œRoanoke” sound very interesting! I will type Leslie’s name into my Google box along with β€œCoven” in order to see the pictures and clips from this series, then I will type in his name and β€œRoanoke” so I can see what is brought up from this particular series!

This guy has a great presence and he has great acting abilities, he is a great role model for many people. I would love to find out how tall his partner is and I would also like to know if he is an actor too like Leslie, this is is where the good old Google box (autocorrect tried to change it to biz!) comes in handy again! πŸ₯½πŸ“¦πŸ“Ί! I will report back with my findings!

I know that his partner will find him irresistible and rightly so, they are a couple that we should admire so much and everyone should gain inspiration and warmth from them. Leslie is tiny and I know that you will agree that his presence, personality, and his role model status, are the things that count. It is great that he is a gay icon and the world would be a better place with more and more people like Leslie about. Leslie rightfully helps so many people accept themselves and others as they are and I can say that Leslie is the most wonderful person, I hope by saying this that I help people too. We are all special too and I hope that I help people by saying this and I also hope that as many people as possible come to this way of thinking.

@ Nik - The AHS Seasons to look out for are 'Coven' and 'Roanoke'. Both share the same witchy theme. If you type Leslie's name into your Google box, followed by 'Coven' or 'Roanoke', I'm sure you will be able to see pictures from the relevant series, and probably even clips as well. When I first saw his tiny figure in 'Roanoke', I thought he was a little girl, because his voice matches his small size!

Of course, his partner will find that part of him quite irresistible! I wonder how tall he is, and whether he's an actor too?

Cheers Nik! πŸ˜πŸ‘

@ Littlelee - Too right she should! I have requested her before but if she goes on the AHS page, imagine how much the average actress will go down by? I still think that she should have a page though! Her statistics will be extremely interesting to height enthusiasts everywhere.

@ Nik - You really should see him act! He is quite delightful and doesn't let his height take away from his strong presence.
Nik Ashton said on 17/Dec/19
@ Sandy Cowell - Oh, he will! His partner will cherish him just the way he is and rightly so!

I think the woman in the Guinness world records as the shortest woman should have a page on here rob
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/Dec/19
Leslie looks to be the shortest of the entire AHS cast, but it is, in fact, Jyoti Amge, who is 23" tall and starred as 'Ma Petite' in 'AHS Freak Show'. She turns 26 years old today and is in The Guinness Book of Records as the World's shortest woman.

Leslie gets his usual 4ft11. πŸ˜πŸ‘
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Oct/19
@ Nik - I'm sure his partner loves him just the way he is! ❀️
Nik Ashton said on 30/Sep/19
This fine gentleman is so honest!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Sep/19
YEEEEEEAAAAAH! Leslie Jordan has made it to the AHS page and he IS the tiniest member of the AHS Family! Thanks so much, Rob, for adding him! πŸ˜€πŸ‘Œ

4ft11. πŸ˜πŸ‘
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Jun/19
Huh! He hasn't had a comment for seven years to the day! How's that for coincidence? Ironically, he's in the witchy AHS's as well! 😨

Leslie reminds me of a smaller version of Burgess Meredith!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Jun/19
Personally, I don't think his diminutiveness bothers him! He is playing a large part in 'American Horror Story' Season Six ('Roanoke') as medium Cricket Marlowe, and he played an important enough part in Season Three, 'Coven', as Quentin Fleming, even if we did mainly just see him sitting down!

When he wandered into the house uninvited just now, I wondered if he was a woman as he's so small! Then when he corrected someone's English, he immediately won my heart! πŸ’“ But, yes, he is a man, and one of 4ft11. That's exactly the height I guessed him to be!

Please, please Rob - he really MUST be added to the 'American Horror Story' page as the tiniest member. He's unique!

Even 4-11 is pushing it. I have seen him a few times.
margaret said on 4/Jun/12
I'm 6'2 and I once stood next to this guy in the bus. Not fun
Mr. R said on 5/Aug/08
I've met him a few times and I would have said about 5-2.

I am surprised he is even this tall...thought he was more in the range of 4 1/2 feet tall
