"Like many actors, Naomi Grossman made her debut in theater, and in 2012 she auditioned for the second season of American Horror Story, Asylum, without knowing exactly which character the audition was for. She brought Pepper, one of the patients of Briarcliff Asylum, to life. Pepper returned in the fourth season, Freak Show, becoming the first character to reprise her role in a different season," mentioned the organizers of Comic-Con Iași in a press release cited by Agerpres.
In addition to American Horror Story, the actress also gained recognition in the series Ctrl Alt Del, for which she received an Emmy nomination.
