The 'Back to the Future' star Lea Thompson celebrates her 63rd birthday and is not suffering from any illness.


Share post:

In October 2023, when Lea Thompson shared the information about both her brothers being diagnosed with Parkinson’s within a few months of each other. This led many to believe that Lea was sick or had gone through some illness, which is not true.

After she revealed the devastating news about both her brothers being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, people assumed that genetics might be the cause and that she might be affected as well.

However, genetics are less likely to transfer Parkinson’s disease, so the rumors about Lea’s illness are false.

Parkinson’s disease is less likely to be inherited genetically, and Lea is not sick!

Being in the entertainment field for 42 years, some fans say that she has disappeared from the entertainment industry which may be due to her illness. But, it is absolutely not true.

Lea stated that she stopped getting starring roles after becoming a mother because Hollywood believes mothers aren’t suitable for lead roles.

However, she did not stop getting roles altogether; she still got supporting roles, and in 2024, she also got a role in The Chicken Girls.

In fact, Lea just celebrated her birthday on Vancouver Island and is grateful for her family and health.

As seen in her Instagram, she celebrated her birthday with a cake on the set and bike riding on the beach with her husband.

Lea posted a photo on her Instagram with the caption, “Had the best birthday. Went to beautiful #vancouverisland @wickinnbc such a beautiful place. Bike riding on the beach with @howiedeutch cake on the set. #chickensisters I am feeling very grateful for you! Family! Health! Love! Goooo #gemini”

Despite the unpleasant news, Lea is trying her best to live a positive life and is thankful for everyone who has tried to help her in this difficult time.

She stays hopeful as many scientists, philanthropists, small donors, and even her co-star Marty J Fox for all the support she receives.

Consequently, as there are no observed past conditions and given this information, she is doing well and remains healthy even at the age of 63.
