Actors Michael Fox (not Michael J. Fox) and Laura Carmichael who starred in Downton Abbey are supporters of the charity Parkinson’s UK. Carmichael supports the charity due to her grandmother’s Parkinson’s diagnosis. At the age of 42, Fox’s aunt was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Fox has said of his aunt that, "She is the bravest person I know. She goes everywhere and does many things even though you can see the effects Parkinson’s has on her body and soul."
