Frankie Muniz, star of Fox's hit series, 'Malcolm in the Middle'
is America's #1 favorite TV teen actor. But what millions of his fans didn't know until now is that Frankie is at the top of the list of responsible Cyberspacers. "I respect and protect my Internet," says Frankie, "counting on my computer to help with schoolwork, for research, to keep in touch with family and friends, as well as to have fun and plan my future goals."
Born Francisco James Muniz IV, December 5, 1985 in Ridgewood, New Jersey, and raised in Knightdale, North Carolina, he was bitten by the acting bug while watching
his older sister, Christina, perform in a play. At age eight, 'Frankie' as he prefers to be called - won out over dozens
of other eager hopefuls and landed his first role - Tiny Tim
in Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol' - performing the role
for three seasons at the North Carolina Theater in Raleigh.
During that time, producers began recognizing his talent. Soon
he found himself in numerous regional productions including 'The Sound of Music,' 'The Wizard of Oz,' 'Our Town' -
and enhanced his reputation when he was chosen to appear
in Horton Foote's critically acclaimed 'The Death of Papa'.
At age 11, Frankie leaped into television in a big way, making his debut in the made-for-TV movie 'To Dance With Oliva,' starring Louis Gossett, Jr. Since then, his phenomenal career has taken off like a (cyber) spaceship! One of the busiest, most sought after young stars in show business, he has dozens of TV appearances and films to his credit (to name just a few): 'My Dog Skip' (2000), 'It Had to Be You' (2002), plus 'Big Fat Liar' and 'Deuces Wild' scheduled for release in 2002.
However, even with his growing popularity, fantastic show-biz success and incredibly hectic schedule - like any other minor-age teen, Frankie must still go to school. Yep. In fact, it's the law! So for three hours a day every day that he works - you'll find young Mr. Muniz, not as 'Malcolm in the Middle' - but as
himself - Frankie, in the middle of being a high school student.
Although his 'classroom' may sometimes be out of the ordinary (he once studied in a location house filled with over 100 cats) - Frankie hits the books, asks his teacher questions, and uses his computer just the same as millions of other students across America and around the world.
And while there aren't enough hours in a day for most people to accomplish all that he does, Frankie has taken the time to speak here, especially for you - his fellow CyberSpacers!
