Lloyd reminisced about the old days and said that Fox was not the first choice and the role of Marty McFly was to be played by Eric Stoltz. But, the director Robert Zemeckis soon realized that he was not right for the role and casted Fox instead. However, according to Lloyd, they immediately connected with each other.

Lloyd said, “I didn’t know Michael other than hearing about him”.

He said, “I felt that I had barely made it through the six weeks, and now I was going to have to do it again? There was immediate chemistry, as they say”.

Meanwhile, Fox, who is 61 and has Parkinson’s disease also expressed his gratitude towards Lloyd for always supporting him. He said that working with Christopher Lloyd was the best part about acting in “Back to the Future”.

“Parkinson’s is the gift that keeps on taking — but it’s a gift, and I wouldn’t change it for anything. People like Chris have been there a lot for me, and so many of you have. It’s not about what I have, it’s about what I’ve been given — the voice to get this done, and help people out”, Fox said.
