Mini Bio (1)

Diminutive 2'9" actor and circus performer Mihaly 'Michu' Meszaros was born in 1939 in Budapest, Hungary. Meszaros performed for the Hungarian National Circus prior to coming to America in the 1970's. Not surprisingly, he portrayed circus midgets in both "Big Top Pee-wee" and "Warlock: The Armageddon." Mihaly was best known for donning the furry full body costume as the titular rascally extraterrestrial on the hugely popular 1980's sitcom "ALF" in scenes that featured the little creature walking, running, or standing in complete view. He also appeared on the TV shows "H.R. Pufnstuf" and "Dear John." He performed stunts for the hit comedy "Look Who's Talking." In addition, Meszaros was the tiny butler Hans in the nifty horror flick "Waxworks" and the grotesquely mutated George Ramirez in the hilariously wacky cult favorite "Freaked." Moreover, Mihaly was a member of Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. His hobbies included drinking scotch and smoking giant cigars. Meszaros died at age 76 after falling into a coma on June 13, 2016.
