Early life[edit] Michael Andrew Fox was born on June 9, 1961, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, to Phyllis (née Piper), an actress/payroll clerk, and William Fox, a police officer and Canadian Forces member.[6][7][8] Fox's family lived in various cities and towns across Canada
Canada
because of his father's career.[6] The family finally moved to the Vancouver suburb of Burnaby, British Columbia, when his father retired in 1971. His father died on January 6, 1990, from a heart attack.[9] Fox attended Burnaby
Burnaby
Central Secondary School, and now has a theatre named for him in Burnaby
Burnaby
South Secondary.[10] At age 15, Fox starred in the Canadian television series Leo and Me, produced by the CBC, and in 1979, at age 18, he moved to Los Angeles to further his acting career. Shortly after his marriage, he decided to move back to Vancouver.[6] Fox is one of four members of the Leo and Me cast and crew who eventually developed Parkinson's disease
Parkinson's disease
in mid-life, an unusually high number that led to some investigation as to whether an environmental factor may have played a role.[11][12][13] Fox was discovered by producer Ronald Shedlo and made his American television debut in the television film Letters from Frank, credited under the name "Michael Fox". He intended to continue to use the name, but when he registered with the Screen Actors Guild, which requires unique registration names to avoid credit ambiguities, he discovered that Michael Fox, a veteran character actor, was already registered under the name.[6] As he explained in his autobiography, Lucky Man: A Memoir and in interviews, he needed to come up with a different name. He did not like the sound of "Michael A. Fox" during a time when "fox" was coming to mean "attractive" and because his middle initial sounded too much like the Canadian "eh?" He also didn't like the sound of "Andrew" or "Andy", so he decided to adopt a new middle initial and settled on "J", as a homage to actor Michael J. Pollard.[9] Acting career[edit] Early career[edit]

Fox's first feature film roles were Midnight Madness (1980) and Class of 1984 (1982), credited in both as Michael Fox. Shortly afterward, he began playing "Young Republican" Alex P. Keaton
Alex P. Keaton
in the show Family Ties, which aired on NBC
NBC
for seven seasons from 1982–89. In an interview with Jimmy Fallon
Jimmy Fallon
in April 2014, Fox stated he negotiated the role at a payphone at Pioneer Chicken. He received the role only after Matthew Broderick
Matthew Broderick
was unavailable.[15] Family Ties
Family Ties
had been sold to the television network using the pitch "Hip parents, square kids",[15] with the parents originally intended to be the main characters. However, the positive reaction to Fox's performance led to his character becoming the focus of the show following the fourth episode.[15] At its peak, the audience for Family Ties
Family Ties
drew one-third of America's households every week.[6] Fox won three Emmy awards for Family Ties
Family Ties
in 1986, 1987, and 1988.[16] He also won a Golden Globe Award in 1989.[17] Brandon Tartikoff, one of the show's producers, felt that Fox was too short in relation to the actors playing his parents, and tried to have him replaced. Tartikoff reportedly said that "this is not the kind of face you'll ever find on a lunch-box." After his later successes, Fox presented Tartikoff with a custom-made lunch-box with the inscription "To Brandon, this is for you to put your crow in. Love and Kisses, Michael J. Fox." Tartikoff kept the lunch-box in his office for the rest of his NBC
NBC
career.[18] While filming Family Ties, Fox met his wife, Tracy Pollan, who portrayed his girlfriend, Ellen.[6] When Fox left the TV series Spin City, his final episodes made numerous allusions to Family Ties: Michael Gross (who played Alex's father Steven) portrays Mike Flaherty's (Fox's character's) therapist,[19] and there is a reference to an off-screen character named "Mallory".[20] Also, when Flaherty becomes an environmental lobbyist in Washington, D.C., he meets a conservative senator from Ohio
Ohio
named Alex P. Keaton, and in one episode Meredith Baxter
Meredith Baxter
played Mike's mother. As a consequence of working in Family Ties, as well as his acting in Teen Wolf
Teen Wolf
and Back to the Future, Fox became a teen idol. VH1's show The Greatest later naming him among their "50 Greatest Teen Idols".[21] Film career[edit]

Fox at the 40th Emmy Awards, August 1988

In January 1985, Fox was cast to replace Eric Stoltz
Eric Stoltz
as Marty McFly, a teenager who is accidentally sent back in time from 1985 to 1955 in Back to the Future. Robert Zemeckis, the director, originally wanted Fox to play Marty, but Gary David Goldberg the creator of Family Ties, which Fox was working on at the time, refused to allow Zemeckis even to approach Fox as he felt that as Meredith Baxter
Meredith Baxter
was on maternity leave at the time, Fox's character Alex Keaton
Alex Keaton
was needed to carry the show in her absence. Eric Stoltz
Eric Stoltz
was cast and was already filming Back to the Future, but Zemeckis felt that Stoltz was not giving the right type of performance for the humor involved.[22] Zemeckis quickly replaced Stoltz with Fox, whose schedule was now more open with the return of Meredith Baxter. He was considered for the role of Mark Kendall in Once Bitten, but it eventually went to Jim Carrey. During filming, Fox would rehearse for Family Ties
Family Ties
from 10 a.m to 6 p.m, then rush to the Back to the Future
Back to the Future
set where he would rehearse and shoot until 2:30 a.m. This schedule lasted for two full months. Back to the Future was both a commercial and critical success. The film spent 8 consecutive weekends as the number-one grossing movie at the US box office in 1985 and eventually earned a worldwide total of $381.11 million.[23] Variety applauded the performances, stating that Fox and his co-star Christopher Lloyd
Christopher Lloyd
imbued Marty and Doc Brown's friendship with a quality reminiscent of King Arthur
King Arthur
and Merlin.[24] The film was later followed by two similarly-successful sequels, Back to the Future Part II (1989) and Back to the Future
Back to the Future
Part III (1990).

During and immediately after the Back to the Future

trilogy, Fox starred in Teen Wolf
Teen Wolf
(1985), Light of Day
Light of Day
(1987), The Secret of My Success (1987), Bright Lights, Big City (1988), and Casualties of War (1989).[25] In The Secret of My Success, Fox played a recent graduate from Kansas State University who moves to New York City, where he has to deal with the ups and downs of the business world. The film was successful at the box office, grossing $110 million worldwide.[26] Roger Ebert
Roger Ebert
in The Chicago Sun Times
Chicago Sun Times
wrote; "Fox provides a fairly desperate center for the film. It could not have been much fun for him to follow the movie's arbitrary shifts of mood, from sitcom to slapstick, from sex farce to boardroom brawls."[27] In Bright Lights, Big City, Fox played a fact-checker for a New York magazine, who spends his nights partying with alcohol and drugs. The film received mixed reviews, with Hal Hinson in The Washington Post criticizing Fox by claiming that "he was the wrong actor for the job".[28] Meanwhile, Roger Ebert
Roger Ebert
praised the actor's performance: "Fox is very good in the central role (he has a long drunken monologue that is the best thing he has ever done in a movie)".[29] During the shooting of Bright Lights, Big City, Fox co-starred again with Tracy Pollan, his on-screen girlfriend from Family Ties. Fox then starred in Casualties of War, a dark and violent war drama about the Vietnam
Vietnam
War, alongside Sean Penn. Casualties of War
Casualties of War
was not a major box office hit, but Fox, playing a private serving in Vietnam, received good reviews for his performance. Don Willmott on film critic's website wrote; "Fox, only one year beyond his Family Ties sitcom silliness, rises to the challenges of acting as the film's moral voice and sharing scenes with the always intimidating Penn."[30] In 1991, he starred in Doc Hollywood, a romantic comedy about a talented medical doctor who decides to become a plastic surgeon. While moving from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles, he winds up as a doctor in a small southern town in South Carolina. Michael Caton-Jones, from Time Out, described Fox in the film as "at his frenetic best".[31] The Hard Way was also released in 1991, with Fox playing an undercover actor learning from police officer James Woods. After being privately diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 1991 and being cautioned he had "ten good working years left", Fox hastily signed a three-film contract, appearing in For Love or Money (1993), Life With Mikey (1993), and Greedy (1994). The mid-1990s saw Fox play smaller supporting roles in The American President
The American President
(1995) and Mars Attacks! (1996).[6] His last major film role was in The Frighteners
The Frighteners
(1996), directed by Peter Jackson. The Frighteners
The Frighteners
tells the story of Frank Bannister (Fox), an architect who develops psychic abilities allowing him to see, hear, and communicate with ghosts. After losing his wife, he uses his new abilities by cheating customers out of money for his "ghost hunting" business. However, a mass murderer comes back from Hell, prompting Frank to investigate the supernatural presence. Fox's performance received critical praise, Kenneth Turan in the Los Angeles Times wrote; "The film's actors are equally pleasing. Both Fox, in his most successful starring role in some time, and [Trini] Alvarado, who looks rather like Andie MacDowell here, have no difficulty getting into the manic spirit of things."[32] He voiced the American Bulldog Chance in Disney's live-action film Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey and its sequel Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco, the titular character in Stuart Little and its two sequels Stuart Little 2
Stuart Little 2
and Stuart Little 3: Call of the Wild, and Milo Thatch in Disney's animated film Atlantis: The Lost Empire.[33] Later career[edit]

Fox started displaying symptoms of early-onset Parkinson's disease
Parkinson's disease
in 1991 while shooting the movie Doc Hollywood, although he was not properly diagnosed until the next year.[35] After his diagnosis, Fox started drinking heavily. He sought help and stopped drinking altogether.[54] In 1998, he decided to go public with his condition, and since then, he has been a strong advocate of Parkinson's disease research.[6] His foundation, The Michael J. Fox
Michael J. Fox
Foundation, was created to help advance every promising research path to curing Parkinson's disease, including embryonic stem cell studies.[6] Fox manages the symptoms of his Parkinson's disease
Parkinson's disease
with the drug carbidopa/levodopa,[55] and he also had a thalamotomy in 1998.[56] His first book, Lucky Man, focused on how, after seven years of denial of the disease, he set up the Michael J. Fox
Michael J. Fox
Foundation, stopped drinking and began to be an advocate for people living with Parkinson's disease.[57] In Lucky Man, Fox wrote that he did not take his medication prior to his testimony before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee in 1999 (full C-SPAN
C-SPAN
video clip);[58]

I had made a deliberate choice to appear before the subcommittee without medication. It seemed to me that this occasion demanded that my testimony about the effects of the disease, and the urgency we as a community were feeling, be seen as well as heard. For people who had never observed me in this kind of shape, the transformation must have been startling.

Michael J. Fox, Lucky Man[59]

In an interview with NPR
NPR
in April 2002,[55] Fox explained what he does when he becomes symptomatic during an interview;

Well, actually, I've been erring on the side of caution—I think 'erring' is actually the right word—in that I've been medicating perhaps too much, in the sense [that] ... the symptoms ... people see in some of these interviews that [I] have been on are actually dyskinesia, which is a reaction to the medication. Because if I were purely symptomatic with Parkinson's symptoms, a lot of times speaking is difficult. There's a kind of a cluttering of speech and it's very difficult to sit still, to sit in one place. You know, the symptoms are different, so I'd rather kind of suffer the symptoms of dyskinesia... this kind of weaving and this kind of continuous thing is much preferable, actually, than pure Parkinson's symptoms. So that's what I generally do... I haven't had any, you know, problems with pure Parkinson's symptoms in any of these interviews, because I'll tend to just make sure that I have enough Sinemet
Sinemet
in my system and, in some cases, too much. But to me, it's preferable. It's not representative of what I'm like in my everyday life. I get a lot of people with Parkinson's coming up to me saying, 'You take too much medication.' I say, 'Well, you sit across from Larry King
Larry King
and see if you want to tempt it.'

Interview, April 30, 2002, Fresh Air, NPR

In 2006, Fox starred in a campaign ad for then State Auditor of Missouri Claire McCaskill
Claire McCaskill
(D) in her successful 2006 Senate campaign against incumbent Jim Talent
Jim Talent
(R), expressing her support for embryonic stem cell research. In the ad, he visibly showed the effects of his Parkinson's disease;

As you might know, I care deeply about stem cell research. In Missouri, you can elect Claire McCaskill, who shares my hope for cures. Unfortunately, Senator Jim Talent
Jim Talent
opposes expanding stem cell research. Senator Talent even wanted to criminalize the science that gives us the chance for hope. They say all politics is local, but that's not always the case. What you do in Missouri matters to millions of Americans, Americans like me.

Michael J. Fox, Campaign Advertisement for Claire McCaskill[60][61]

The New York Times
The New York Times
called it "one of the most powerful and talked about political advertisements in years" and polls indicated that the commercial had a measurable impact on the way voters voted, in an election that McCaskill won.[62] His second book, Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist, describes his life between 1999 and 2009, with much of the book centred on how Fox got into campaigning for stem-cell research.[57] On March 31, 2009, Fox appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show

with Mehmet Oz
Mehmet Oz
to publicly discuss his condition as well as his book, his family and his prime-time special which aired May 7, 2009, (Michael J. Fox: Adventures of an Incurable Optimist).[63] His work led him to be named one of the 100 people "whose power, talent or moral example is transforming the world" in 2007 by Time magazine.[64] On March 5, 2010, Fox received an honorary doctorate in medicine from Karolinska Institutet
Karolinska Institutet
for his contributions to research in Parkinson's disease.[65] He has also received an honorary doctorate of laws from the University of British Columbia.[66] On May 31, 2012, he received an honorary degree of Doctor of Laws
Doctor of Laws
from the Justice Institute of British Columbia[67] to recognize his accomplishments as a performer as well as his commitment to raising research funding and awareness for Parkinson's disease. Fox recalled performing in role-playing simulations as part of police recruit training exercises at the Institute early in his career. In 2016, his organization the Michael J. Fox
