Harrison Ford’s biographyHarrison Ford is an actor and producer who has played dozens of roles in his life. But two of his heroes will remain in the annals of cinema forever: They are Han Solo from the Star Wars and fearless scientist and treasure hunter Indiana Jones.
Childhood and familyHarrison Ford was born on July 13, 1942, in the maternity home of Chicago, Illinois. Christopher Ford, an advertising agency manager, and Dorothy Nudelman, a former actress on radio, became the firstborn’s happy parents. After the birth of her son, his mother became a housewife. Three years later, Harrison’s younger brother, Terence was born.
The loser actorIn 1964 he and Mary Marquardt, his college friend, and future wife moved to Hollywood, hoping to find a job for their soul. For two years he worked as a barman until he signed a contract with the studio Columbia, where he was promised $150 for each role.
Star WarsThis experience was unvalued for Ford - good relations with Lucas allowed him to get an invitation to the casting for the Star Wars. Ford auditioned for general purposes and became the space pilot-smuggler Han Solo.
Indiana JonesFord has many prominent roles on his part but the only one can compete in popularity in popular culture. Of course, we are talking about the legendary smart archaeologist Indiana Jones.
Blade RunnerIn between the first and second parts of Indiana Jones (and the final part of Star Wars), Ford appeared in the Blade Runner cyberpunk thriller by Ridley Scott (an adaptation of Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (1968)). His hero is Rick Deckard, a policeman who catches replicants who have escaped cyborgs, who are outwardly indistinguishable from people.
In addition, they disputed the vision of the main character. Ford believed that his hero was a one hundred percent person and by no means can he be a replicant. Scott had a different point of view, as the director’s version of The Runner spoke about 10 years later.
