“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.”
Frankie Muniz has opened up recently admitting that he does not remember much from his on-screen childhood past.
In an interview while currently starring on Dancing With The Stars, the actor opened up about his ongoing battle with his health, which has affected his memory.
Over the past five years, the 31-year-old has suffered from mini-strokes which cut off blood supply to the brain. He believes these, along with approximately nine concussions, have contributed to severe memory loss surrounding his childhood acting days.
Muniz starred as lead Malcom in Malcom in the Middle for six years between 2000 – 2006. He created a total 151 episodes.
Discussing his past he said: “It makes me a little sad. Things pop back into my mind that I should have remembered. I should have remembered going to Australia. That’s something people remember.”
But he admits that this year is the year he has decided to start living in the moment and being happy. While performing on Dancing With The Stars, he is writing down everything he does each day as a reminder in time to come.
