Back to the Future can undoubtedly be called the most iconic trilogy of all time. It even managed to make the DeLorean car, that failed in real life (the one that served as “The Time Machine” in the movie), popular again. But what do we know about the actors involved in the film?

We at ViralSection watched all 3 movies from the trilogy, once again, while creating this article. And the way the actors look now amazed us to the core, especially Thomas F. Wilson that played the role of Biff Tannen.

Michael J. Fox had already earned his popularity before the release of Back to the Future. Very few people know that he actually had to turn down the offer for his role in this movie because he was already engaged in shooting another film. The filmmakers then offered another actor the part, but had to freeze the shooting and wait until Michael was free, because he fit the role the best.

After Back to the Future, Michael took part in many other movies like Doc Hollywood, For Love or Money, and Mars Attacks! However, at the age of 30, the actor was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Fortunately, with the help of doctors, he’s managed to stay in good shape, mentally and physically. He even founded “The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.”

Claudia Wells was the one who played Marty’s girlfriend. Unfortunately, she couldn’t reprise the role of Jennifer Parker in the sequels to Back to the Future because her mother had been diagnosed with cancer. Recently, she has come back to acting and had roles in several movies like Still Waters Burn, Max, and You Are Not Alone.

As surprising as it might sound, the actor who played the main bully in the movie actually became famous as a comedy actor. Nevertheless, he took part in the movie sequels and played Biff’s grandson Griff Tannen and great-grandfather Buford “Mad Dog” Tannen.
