Skywalker, Princess Leia, Darth Vader where the stars of the saga StarWars.
Yet every young kid coming out of the theatre wanted to be the cute looking,
gunslinging, Ace pilot - flying the Millennium Falcon...Han Solo!!
Lucas's epic saga StarWars catapulted Harrison Ford to stardom. Half the
world fell in love with him when in The Empire Strikes Back he was frozen
by DarthVader and given away to the Bounty hunter as a trophy! Every movie
fan wanted Luke & Co. to rescue him from Jabba's grip! By the time
Lucas finished the trilogy by the way of Return Of The Jedi Han Solo had
even won Princess Leia's heart.
Ford continued his ascent to the top when he played the swashbuckling,
whip lashing Indiana Jones in the superbly thrilling Speilberg trilogy.
In The Last Crusade he showed the World that he could quite superbly stand
in the act against one of the world's greatest actor Sean Connery, Who
acting as Indiana's father nearly stole the show from him!
Ford has come a long way from being Han Solo and Indiana jones now. He
has been roped in to act the Tom Clancy character Jack Ryan which could
very well prove to be James Bond II. His portrayal in The Fugitive and
Air Force One have been one of the best acts out off Hollywood, But his
best achievements were when he was nominated for the Best Actor Academy
Award in 1985 for his perfomance in The Witness and the People's Choice
Award which he won for the most Favourite Movie Star in the movie Air
on July 13th. 1942, Chicago, Illinois.
