Back to the Future star Claudia Wells, 53, enjoys lunch in Los Angeles… as the sci-fi classic celebrates its 35th anniversary

She played the original Jennifer Parker in the 1985 sci-fi adventure classic Back to the Future.

And Claudia Wells, 53, celebrated the 35th anniversary of the film in style on Friday, by dining with a friend at a Studio City sushi restaurant.

The veteran actress looked effortlessly chic in a floral blouse tucked into blue jeans.

The Fast Times star paired the outfit with tan sneakers and wore a Louis Vuitton fanny pack around her waist.

Claudia’s memorable, wavy tresses were in full effect for the outing, and the mother-of-one blinged up with a bevy of necklaces and rings.

The youthful actress looked younger than her 53 years as she met with a male companion for the meal.

However Claudia was unable to return for either of the film’s sequels, due to her mother being diagnosed with cancer.

She told the Huffington Post in 2017: ‘My mother had fourth stage lymphoma… I had so much happening personally that deep down, I never considered reprising my role and deep in my soul, I knew this was the right choice for me.’ 

CSI star Elisabeth Shue replaced her in those movies.

Wells believes the film’s fan base has grown over the years rather than dwindle.

Speaking to the Dallas Observer in 2019, she said, ‘I didn’t really notice [a fan base] because I was so accustomed to acting.’

‘I starred in a ton of series and movies-of-the-week. I was accustomed to people wanting autographs and things like that.’ 

‘I didn’t notice the hugeness of the movie 15 years ago or 10 years ago. I notice it more now than when it came out.’
