This is what the kid who played Stevie in 'Malcolm in the Middle' looks like now


Forget Breaking Bad - we all know that the highlight of Bryan Cranston's acting career was, and will remain, Malcolm in the Middle, in which he played the greatest dad of all-time, Hal.

There was a host of incredible characters in the hugely-successful comedy, which ran from 2000 to 2006, spawning seven seasons and 151 episodes.

There was Hal's wife Lois, and his three sons Malcolm, Reese and Dewey - but among the excellent minor characters, no one can forget Stevie Kenarban, the sweet, one-lunged, wheelchair-bound best friend of Malcolm, who would frequently outsmart those around him.

He was played by actor Craig Lamar Traylor, who was just 11 when the series started.

It's always fascinating to see how child stars end up - and it's safe to say that it's something of a shock to see Craig these days - a strapping lad of 27 who is now a writer and tattoo artist, as well as still dabbling in the occasional piece of acting.

His Twitter account reveals a few photos of him taken over the last few years:

And it's pleasing to see that he still looks back fondly upon his Malcolm in the Middle days:

While we're here - this is still amazing:
