The part that Naomi plays in AHS 'Apocalypse' is SUCH a contrast to the one she plays in 'Asylum'. She dresses in a witchy black outfit and even wears make-up!
You can really see that she is no way below 5ft, and possibly even more first thing in the morning.

Well, stone me! I've found a film starring Naomi Grossman playing a bit part - as a nurse in a film called 'Painkillers'. She looks so much different to how she does in AHS - and a bit taller, I suppose, as she wasn't stooping. It's a shame that I couldn't compare her with Madeline Zima, who was sitting down.
5ft - no less.

I forgot the first time round that we see Pepper in 'Asylum' and she's not just able to speak, she speaks very well and articulates herself beautifully, not unlike she does in real life. She is with the pregnant Grace and the scene is a bit ethereal, because Grace has supposedly passed on but Pepper has not. She talks with Dr Arden, (James Cromwell) and comes up to little more than his navel!
My guess is 5ft.

I think it's worth emphasizing that the way Pepper walks in AHS makes her look smaller.

@ Gladstone Screwer - I'd like to tell you about a little internet adventure I had yesterday morning.
While trying to find out if Naomi and Leslie Grossman are sisters, my phone diverted me to various interviews with cast members of 'American Horror Story'. I didn't get a conclusive answer as to whether the two are sisters or related in any way, but I found a couple of videos of how they created Pepper, Naomi's character in AHS, and you see her interviewed as well. She is charming and funny, and if you saw the interviews, I am sure you'd agree. Pepper is one of the most popular characters out of AHS. Naomi described in one interview how she walked into a roomful of 'little people', ranging from 4-5ft, and that she never expected to win the part - but win it she did! You should try to get into AHS, Gladstone, if you haven't done so already. I think you'll find yourself laughing WITH the characters because, although very gory, the whole production is extremely humorous as well!
Cheers Gladstone! 😁👍

This is a lovely back-to-back photograph of Rob and Naomi Grossman! I have no problem in believing that she can pull off 5'0"!

Elsa Mars, (Jessica Lange) on Naomi Grossman's character, Pepper, "....but when this strange-looking little one looked at me, it was the first time I'd felt unconditional love."
Isn't that beautiful?

Out of all the AHS 'Freak Show' stories, the one centering round Naomi's character Pepper has to be my absolute favourite. Called 'Orphans', it describes how young, innocent, 18-year-old Naomi is found by Elsa Mars in an orphanage and taken back to the Show, where she meets and falls deeply in love with her husband, Salty. Then one morning, Pepper wakes up to find her love has passed on. She has a limited vocabulary, and vents her emotions by throwing things.
Elsa decides that the best course of action is to find Pepper's sister, but unlike little Pepper, the sister is anything but a pure soul. She plants a child killing on her defenceless sister, that of her own special needs infant child, and has her committed to a mental institution. The place is run by Lily Rabe, but she (Lily) only has to take one look at the trusting little woman to know that she could never have committed such a vile act, and she gives her a much-needed cuddle and says, "No scrubbing out toilets for you, my child! You can sort out these magazines!"
The storyline has advanced some 6 years to 1958, and Pepper sees her friend and adoptive Mom, Elsa, looking beautiful on a front cover of a magazine. She kisses the picture, and there concludes this particular story. It actually has a happy ending, and one that had me moved to tears. So many stories don't end happily, but this one is different.
Often, Naomi can look a little less than 5ft, but the tall heights of so many of the cast is a contributory factor.
I have only seen this episode once, and I can't think of a nicer way of starting my day! On it goes..... 😉🌄

Naomi wears really scary make-up in 'American Horror Story' and regardless of her small height, she sends shivers down my spine!
5ft. I've never seen her act before.📺
It's quite an introduction, I must say!

She's around my grandmother's height. She's like 5ft herself.

If this person barely reaches Robs shoulder at 5 ft nothing and if Rob really is 5"8 then there's NO way IM 5"1 as Im constantly told by my GP
