Fox also spoke to fans about being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1991, when he was 29 years old, reports.

"You guys have given me my whole life," Fox said. "The best thing that happened in my life was this thing. Parkinson's is a gift. I've said to people it's a gift and they say, 'You're nuts.' I say, 'Yeah, but it's the gift that keeps on taking.' But it's a gift and I wouldn't change it for anything ... It's not about what I have, it's about what I've been given."

In 2023, New York Comic Con is scheduled to be held Oct. 12-15 at the Javits Center in New York City.
