Michael J. Fox (born Michael Andrew Fox on June 9, 1961) is a Canadian-American movie and television actor. He was born and raised in Canada. He later gained American citizenship and retains his Canadian citizenship. His most famous roles include Marty McFly from the Back to the Future trilogy (1985-1990); Alex P. Keaton from Family Ties (1982-1989), for which he won three Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe Award; and Mike Flaherty from Spin City (1996-2000), for which he won an Emmy, three Golden Globes, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Fox found out he had Parkinson's disease in 1991, and told this to the public in 1998.[1] As his disease became worse, he retired from acting in 2000.
