Longtime television star just confirmed that he is suffering from serious memory loss. Praying for you!
You probably remember Frankie Muniz best from the famous sitcom “Malcolm in the Middle.” He is currently a contestant on Dancing With the Stars, and has a story to tell.
The contestants this week were all asked recall their most memorable year. That’s when the actor started to open up about his health battle. He suffers from memory loss.
Fans had no idea that he suffered with it, but it has been a serious battle for him.
“Most people think that my most memorable year would be the year ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ started, because it allowed me to live all these dreams of mine,” Muniz said. “I’ve gotten to really do anything I’ve wanted to do, but the truth is, I don’t remember much [of that] … It almost feels like it wasn’t me.”
He has also suffered nine concussions throughout his life. Muniz believes that all of this has contributed to severe memory loss. Which is why he isn’t able to remember much from Malcom.
It does make him sad. He said somethings things pop into his mind, but he doesn’t really remember much.
“It makes me a little sad,” Muniz admitted. “Things pop back into my mind [that] I should have remembered. I should have remembered going to Australia. That’s something people remember.”
His former TV dad Bryan Cranston, who starred alongside him in 151 episodes of the series opened up about Muniz. He always reminds him about what happened on Malcom.
“They are still [his] experiences,” Cranston said on “DWTS.” “My job is to tell him to remember what happened on ‘Malcolm in the Middle.’ What a life.”
“Frankie was a TV star, then he became a race car driver, and then a drummer in a rock band,” he continued. “I said to him, ‘What are you going to be next, an astronaut?’”
This is so sad…I had no idea.
