Michael J Fox Explains Why He Wasn’t ‘Scared’ When He Started Forgetting Phrases After Parkinson’s Diagnosis

Michael J Fox described his reaction when he started forgetting lines while filming television projects.

the actor of Back to the Future was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991, at the age of 29, and subsequently founded a charity that works to promote treatment for the disease.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporterrecalled an incident that occurred on the set of The Good Fight.

“When I did the spin off of [The] good wifeWhat is it [The] good fight, couldn’t remember the lines. I just blanked out, couldn’t remember the lines,” she explained.

Fox said he used to be able to memorize scripts “in a flash” early in his career, but couldn’t “remember a certain line” in The Good Fight. Then he suffered “the same problem” in the Kiefer Sutherland drama Designated Survivor.

“It was a legal matter and I just couldn’t get it done,” he said. “But what [fue] really refreshing was that I didn’t panic. I didn’t get scared. I just said, ‘Okay, that’s it. Keep going. A key element of this process is memorizing lines, and I can’t do that.’”

In 2020, Fox said he could be at “the end of his acting career” due to worsening Parkinson’s symptoms.

In another part of the interview with THRstressed that his experience forgetting lines brought to mind a scene from Once Upon a Time In Hollywoodby Quentin Tarantino, in which Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) angrily berates himself in the mirror after forgetting a line during filming.

“He went back to the dressing room, screaming at himself, tearing himself up in the mirror and drinking. It was a disaster,” he recounted. “And I thought about that, and I said to myself, ‘I don’t want to feel that. Am I wrong to feel that? Am I right in feeling that?’”

“I don’t accept a project with many lines, because I can’t do it. And for whatever reason, it just is what it is,” he added. “I can’t remember five pages of dialogue. I can not do it. It can not be done. So I’m going to the beach.”
