Harrison Ford

If Harrison Ford had listened to the advice of studio heads early in his career, he would still be a carpenter! Instead, Ford’s acting career spans more than 50 years and includes iconic roles as Indiana Jones and Star Wars’ Han Solo. His big break came when George Lucas cast him in the coming-of-age dramedy American Graffiti, in 1973, and that collaboration led to Ford’s breakthrough role in the Star Wars Universe. Today Ford is one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars. Off screen, Harrison Ford is a private pilot whose collection includes vintage planes, an $18 million-dollar jet and a Bell helicopter that he loans out for rescue operations.
