Frankie Muniz doesn't remember filming 'Malcolm in the Middle'

This is crushing news

Frankie Muniz doesn't remember filming 'Malcolm in the Middle'

Malcolm in the Middle is the greatest television show of all time, guys, I am confident in this fact. I watch it very regularly, own it all on DVD, am obsessed with it to a worrying degree - so JUST imagine my heartache today, when I found out that Malcolm himself - Frankie Muniz - doesn’t remember filming all of it.

He’s currently competiting on the US version of Strictly Come Dancing - Dancing with the Stars, and has revealed on the show his problems with certain memories, particularly of his time on Malcolm in the Middle

He said:

“Truth is, I don’t remember much of that. It almost feels like it wasn’t me.

“I have had nine concussions, I have had a fair amount of mini-strokes - TIA’s as they’re called, transient ischemic attacks.

“It makes me a little sad, things pop back into my mind [that] I should have remembered.”

Thankfully, he’s got his on-screen dad, Bryan Cranston, aka the greatest actor in the entire world, to help him out. Cranston also spoke to Dancing with the Stars, saying:

“I told him not to worry about what you remember, what you don’t remember. It will be my job. I will tell him, ‘Remember this, remember that, on Malcolm? What a life for you.’”

He also has his girlfriend, Paige Price, who helps him keep a daily diary to jot down his memories permanently and also presumably use him as a scapegoat for losing the house keys etc.

Of course, to a rabid MITM fan like me, it’s horrible stuff to hear - can’t have my beloved Malcolm feeling upset, can we? Well, thankfully, he’s all good right now (helps he’s a multi-millionaire, I guess):

“I’m happy with my acting career. I’m happy with the decision I made to race cars and to focus on music. Even if I don’t remember, I’m happy.”

To be honest, I can agree - quite often if I don’t remember, I’m happy too. Especially after last year’s staff party.
