Seasoned Canadian-American actor, Michael Andrew Fox OC, known professionally as Michael J. Fox has revealed that a decline in his ability to memorize is causing him to shy away from acting roles with lengthy dialogues.
Speaking on ‘Working It Out’, with Mike Birbiglia, Michael said unlike before, he no longer remembers his dialogues when on set even though he could some time ago step on set and then replicate everything on in the script.
“I just had this blank … I couldn’t remember the lines. And it was strange because on ‘Family Ties,’ (producers) used to give me the script and I’d go, ‘I’m in. Mallory, get off the phone.’ And I knew it, like an instant. And it continued to be that way for me.”
Fox who is now 60 was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at age 29 and has since made his battle with the disease open to the public as he continues to act.
