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