After suffering from multiple health problems, some memories have left Frankie Muniz.


The 31-year-old actor and former professional race car driver, who competed on “Dancing with the Stars”, revealed that he could hardly recall working for the hit sitcom “Malcolm In the Middle”.

"It makes me a little sad. Things pop back into my mind I should have remembered. Truth is, I don't remember much [of Malcolm In the Middle], it almost feels like it wasn't me," he said.

Muniz, who suffered injuries after a car crash, said that his injuries may have largely contributed to his loss of memory. The crash broke his back and injured his hands and ribs.

He has been experiencing ischemic attacks since the crash. His body would temporarily stop supplying blood to the brain.


Muniz, who has partnered with Witney Carson on the dance competition show, admitted that his injuries have made dancing more difficult for him.


“I think we talk about my injuries every day because I have a creaky, old body. I’m 31 but feel like I have the creaky, old body of a 71-year-old,” he said.

He added: “But I’m doing whatever it takes to take care of my body, so I can continue dancing. I’ve raced Indy cars, I’ve played every sport, I consider myself a pretty athletic person, but I’m so sore. I’m so dead. I’m in the sauna, I’m icing. Everything that I’m doing every minute of the day is to make me a better dancer in this competition and make it to the end.”



Carson, a 23-year-old pro dancer, said she was having a good time working with Muniz on the show. He described him as “amazing”.

“He’s so hard working and wants to do the best that he can. We’re having a blast,” she said.


Muniz said that he used to be scared to dance in front of people, but that he was now hooked to it. “I’m having the time of my life,” he said.

Muniz is currently hosting the “DWTS: Juniors” with Jordan Fisher.

The young dance professionals performed during a high-energy number that mixed in many quality dance moves including splits, flips and lots of spins.
