'ALF' Actor Michu Meszaros Dies At Age 76

The actor best know for playing ALF died Sunday at age 76 after health complications following a stroke.

At 2 feet 9 inches, one of Michu Meszaros' most famous characteristics was his height. He performed with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus before bringing the ALF (alien life form) costume to life.

"The circus is my life, all my life, almost," Meszaros said in a news report.

While the Hungarian actor was the man in the ALF costume for head-to-toe shots, another actor did the voice-overs for the character in the 1980s sitcom.

In addition to "ALF," the actor also had roles in "Freaked," "Waxwork" and "Big Top Pee-wee."

This video includes a clip from NBC / "ALF" and an image from GoFundMe / Michu Meszaros Celebrate Life Fund.
