Troyer is best known for his role as the evil Mini Me in the Austin Powers movies, and has featured in other films such as Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone and Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus.
He was hospitalised last year for alcohol addiction and, at the time, released a statement explaining his condition."I've been hearing from some concerned fans, so I'd like to address a very personal situation," he said."As you know, I've battled alcohol addiction in the past and while it's not always been an easy fight, I'm willing to continue my fight day by day."I've been receiving treatment for the last week and I am voluntarily checking into a treatment centre later this week to continue to get the help that I need."I want to thank everyone that's reached out with their messages of support, it truly means the world to me. With your support, I got this."
