Former child star Frankie Muniz rose to fame when he starred as the titular character in the early 2000s hit show Malcolm In The Middle.

However, acting wasn't his only passion.


In 2005, Muniz signed a two-year deal with Jensen Motorsport as a wheel race car driver, and by the time his show ended in 2006, he was already competing in major championships.

But at the height of his racing career, Muniz had to put everything on hold due to multiple health complications.

In 2009, he suffered a wrist injury that cut his season short, then not too long after, he was involved in a crash that left him with a broken back and severe injuries to his ribs and hands. In 2012, at the age of 26, the actor suffered a mini-stroke, and almost a year to the day, he experienced a second one.

"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," the actor told People in a recent interview.

Muniz opened up about his health struggles a few times while competing on the current season of Dancing With The Stars, and on a recent episode, he went into details about the extent of his injuries and it is very sad.
