During his childhood and early adult life, Glover suffered from epilepsy. It wasn’t until 1977, when he made the decision to have a breakthrough with this brain disorder.
While doing a play at his San Francisco community theater, he sensed he was about to have a seizure. As he proceeded to the theater’s basement he said to himself, “I will not have this seizure, I will not have this seizure.”
“Each time I got a bit stronger,and the symptoms began to diminish to the point where I was ready to go on stage.” Glover has not suffered an episode since he was 35.
