Mihaly 'Michu' Meszaros - Biography

Diminutive three-foot-tall actor and circus performer Mihaly 'Michu' Meszaros hails from Budapest, Hungary. Not surprisingly, he portrayed circus midgets in both "Big Top Pee-wee" and "Warlock: The Armageddon." Mihaly is best known for donning the furry full body costume as the titular rascally extraterrestrial on the hugely popular '80s sitcom "ALF" in scenes that featured the little creature walking, running or standing in complete view. He's 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." He's a member of Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Mihaly resides in Beverly Hills, California. His hobbies include drinking scotch and smoking giant cigars.
