Malcolm has faced a heath scare. Frankie Muniz, the former child star most famous for his role as Malcom in the hit TV series Malcolm in the Middle, was hospitalized last week after he suffered a “mini-stroke.” Muniz, who is just 27 years old, shared the frightening news with his fans over Twitter Tuesday.
“I was in the hospital last Friday. I suffered a “Mini Stroke”, which was not fun at all. Have to start taking care of my body! Getting old!”

Muniz reportedly suffered the stroke while riding his motorcycle in Phoenix, Ariz. on Friday. During his ride, he suffered vision loss in one eye — and when he spoke to his doctors, they informed him that the cause was a mini-stroke. According to his doctors, fewer than 10 percent of people under the age of 45 suffer mini-strokes.
Muniz appeared on Good Morning America Wednesday, according to USA Today, to recount the experience. “I couldn’t say words,” he said. “I thought I was saying them! My fiancée, was looking at me like I was speaking a foreign language.”
“I can’t get a deep breath in,” Muniz, who is currently in the post-production stages for his TV movie, Destruction: Las Vegas, added. “I’m still trying to make sense of it, but happy I’m alive.”
