Actor Michael J. Fox, who rose to fame for his participation in the Back to the Future trilogy, announced that he will not work again, because Parkinson’s, a disease he has suffered for 30 years, already prevents him from doing basic things.
Whoever played the famous Marty McFly in the film of the 80s, made the presentation of his memoir, which is titled: “No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality”. During it, he announced his retirement, which would be definitive, because although he had already moved away from acting due to the disease, it seems that the situation is more serious than before.
There is a time for everything and my time of working 12 hours a day and memorizing seven pages of script is in the past. At least for now I’m going into a second retreat. This could change, because everything changes, but If this is the end of my career, so be it ”, commented in an interview for People magazine.
The 59-year-old actor was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1991 and he made it public in 1998. In 2000 he announced his first retirement, as the symptoms became severe, but when they subsided, he returned to work.
However, Michael J. Fox confessed that your short-term memory is badly damaged because of the illness, so he would have to retire a second time and this time it seems that there is no going back.
