Michael J. Fox is well known for his participation in the trilogy Back to the future, as protagonist Marty McFly. Currently, at 61, the actor is going through hard times due to Parkinson’s disease, an illness that has been with him for some time and which was revealed to the public last year.
In an interview with the podcast Make it out, he commented on the case in more detail and explained how the disease hinders him in his acting work. “When I did ‘The Good Wife’ spin-off, which is ‘The Good Fight,’ I couldn’t remember the lines. I just had this blank, I couldn’t remember the lines,” said Michael said.
Memory loss is even something new for the actor. To illustrate this, he mentioned his role in the 80s film Family Ties. There were pages and pages of dialogue, which the Canadian had no problem with.
“I had 70 pages of dialogue on a Brian DePalma movie, and I knew a very expensive shot hinged on knowing my lines, and not a bead of sweat broke from my brow,” Fox said. .
Unfortunately, due to the advance of the disease, things are not going so well these days. “I can’t remember five pages of dialogue. I just can’t. So I go to the beach,” lamented Michael, who talks more about his relationship with Parkinson’s disease in his biography, titled No time like the future.
