Jake Lloyd's psychiatric episodeSource: Daily Mail
Jake Lloyd was once one of the most popular actors in America. He gained his fame in 1999 when he played in the historical movie, Star Wars. Everything was going well for Jake and his career appeared to be on the rise. However, in the past couple of years he was not only off the radar, but he was also in the middle of some strange rumors.
Apparently, the former actor tried his best to continue with his career, but things did not work as well as his fans expected. From being one of the stars in the movie, he ended up to be, years later, just one of the many other people showing up in Star Wars events and comic books festivals. Indeed, he kept his fans close, but apparently he was dealing with severe problems without anyone knowing.
A few months ago, Jake was arrested while driving in Charleston, but not only before crashing the car into a fence and trying to run in a small forest. He resisted arrest and after some investigations, the police discovered that he did not even have license. Some people might believe that he was just another teenager who once had it all and lost it. Later on his mother revealed one of his biggest secrets: the actor was diagnosed with schizophrenia when he was only 19 and since then he has been trying to live his life in the best way he can.
Jake is trying to overcome his condition with the support of his family and some of the best doctors in the country. Let’s hope he will get back to be the brilliant actor we all loved!
