Lea Thompson

Lea Katherine Thompson, the American actress, director, and television producer was born on 31st May 1961, at Minnesota, U.S. She is the daughter of Clifford and Barbara Barry Thompson, who was a musician. She danced professionally as a ballerina in childhood, but Mikhail Baryshnikov advised her to focus on acting since she lacked the right body for a prima ballerina. 

Her screen debut was as Cecily “Sissy” Loper in the interactive live-action video game Mystery Disc: Murder, Anyone?, and her movie debut was with Jaws 3-D in 1983. She rose to prominence with her roles as Lorraine Baines in the Back to the Future trilogy, that in The Beverly Hillbillies, Switched at Birth, which is a television series. She has received a number of award for her stunning performances including Saturn Awards, People’s choice Awards, and Satellite Awards. 

Lea Thompson Religion

She has Irish, English, Scots-Irish, German, and distant Dutch ancestry. It seems like the American actress is not interested in sharing her religious views and beliefs in public, as she has not commented anything related to religious matters so far. 

Thompson’s daughters Zoey Deutch and Madelyn says that their mother is an admirer of Judaism, and its concepts blew her mind. 

Lea Thompson Political Views

Back to the Future’s Lea Thompson is one among the few celebrities who publicly opposes the initiatives of U.S president Donald Trump. She believes that the President causes only harm to the nation and his initiatives in the health care field will affect the country very badly. She has reacted very harshly on hearing the news about Trump visiting her hometown, Minnesota.

It is safe to assume that Thompson is not supportive of any political leaders, and Donald Trump especially.
