Michu Meszaros, the actor who played ALF in the hit 1980s TV series, is reportedly fighting for his life after slipping into a coma.
Meszaros' manager, Dennis Varga, told TMZ.com on Saturday (11Jun16) that the actor had been dealing with a multitude of health issues since suffering a stroke back in 2008.
The 76-year-old actor was rushed to hospital after Varga found him unresponsive in his bathroom at his Los Angeles home earlier this month (Jun16). The 2'9" star remains in a coma, according to TMZ.
Varga claims Meszaros gave him strict instructions not to take him off life support, and the current condition of the actor is unknown.
Meszaros, who hails from Budapest, Hungary, started as a performer with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, before stepping into the costume of ALF on the NBC sitcom.
The friendly extraterrestrial nicknamed ALF (an acronym for Alien Life Form), was a puppet, but the show required Meszaros to wear the costume when they needed walking or running shots.
He also had a cameo in 1988 film Big Top Pee-wee, and two Pepsi commercials with Michael Jackson. His most recent role was as Augusto in Warlock: The Armageddon back in 1993.
