His iconic portrayal of Marty McFly in “Back to the Future” solidified his place in Hollywood. Reflecting on his career, Fox shared a conversation with his mother about taking the role: “To this day — well, till two weeks ago — my mother thought it was a really bad idea for me to do Back to the Future.
