Frankie Muniz's Illness Made Him Forget Malcolm In The Middle
Malcolm In The Middle child star Frankie Muniz is currently starring in 'Dancing with the Stars'. This week's theme was “The Most Memorable Year", but for Muniz, the theme struck a discomforting chord.
Muniz revealed in his rehearsal video that he actually can’t remember most of the incredible things he’s done in his life.
He spent six years as a loveable dork on Malcolm in the Middle, but thanks to the nine concussions and several mini-strokes he has suffered as an adult (also known as transient ischemic attacks) he can't recall many of the things he is famed for.
“It makes me a little sad,” Muniz said. “Things pop back into my mind [that] I should have remembered.”
Former TV dad and all-round hero Bryan Cranston showed up in Muniz's video segment, saying he's made it his job to help Frankie remember the good times.
“Frankie was a TV star, then he became a race car driver, and a drummer in a rock band. I said to him once, ‘What are you going to be, an astronaut next? You are doing all the things professionally that everybody dreams about.'”
“I’ve gotten to do anything that I really wanted to do,” Muniz replied. “But the truth is, I don’t really remember much of that.”
Cranston starred alongside Muniz in 151 episodes of the hit sitcom.
“They are still [his] experiences,” Cranston said. “It will be my job, I will tell him, ‘remember this? Remember that on Malcolm?’ What a life for you.”
“Truth is, I don’t remember much [of my time on Malcolm]” said Muniz, whose girlfriend Paige keeps a daily diary for him. “It almost feels like it wasn’t me.”
