Her name is Sarah Paulson and she acts in the seventh season of American Horror Story. The series, AHS:Cult, focuses on her as the main character who has a phobia of clowns (known as Coulrophobia), the fear of tiny holes (known as Trypophobia), and the fear of bees (known as Melissophobia).

In case you haven't seen it, check out the trailer for the series below:

Ellen starts off her scare game lightly by appearing in her dressing room - harmless, right? But she decided to take it up a notch by playing on one of her fears, clowns, to scare the living daylights out of her.

The reaction when Paulson realised what Ellen was up to is simply priceless! Hilarious!
