Christopher Lloyd, now 83, notably recounted how his accomplice had taken over the role of Marty McFly, which was not originally intended for him.
« The announcement - at one o'clock in the morning after we had been filming for six weeks - was that the actor playing Marty (Eric Stoltz editor's note) would no longer play Marty, and that tomorrow we would start filming with Michael (…) I felt like I barely survived the (first) six weeks and now I was going to have to start over! “, confided the actor.
But his fears were quickly swept away by this unique complicity between the two actors, which transpires on the screen.
« The chemistry was there from the first scene we had, it was alive and it stayed that way for three movies “, thus confirmed Lloyd.
« All I had to do was react,” said Michael J. Fox. “Just take it and let it overwhelm me. I knew he was brilliant. That was it: being with Chris and having it be Chris, and enjoying it… It was a big thrill. Every time I worked with him I knew it was going to be a good day “, he continued.
