After being persuaded by his wife to see a doctor in the 80’s, Academy Award-winning writer, Dan Aykroyd was diagnosed with autism. Ghostbusters and The Blues Brothers actor talked to the Daily Mail about growing up with autism and how it led to the creation of Ghostbusters. “One of my symptoms included my obsession with ghosts and law enforcement -- I carry around a police badge with me, for example. I became obsessed by Hans Holzer, the greatest ghost hunter ever. That’s when the idea of my film Ghostbusters was born."
