Harrison Ford vows never to return to Star Wars

Harrison Ford

Harrison Ford has vowed he will never reprise his role as Han Solo – the character which shot him to global superstardom in Star Wars.

The 65-year-old actor is currently basking in the success of his latest movie Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – which has become a major box office hit 17 years after his first appearance as the intrepid archeologist.

But although Ford is grateful for the career boost afforded to him by Star Wars when he was a struggling actor, he would never consider returning to the sc-fi franchise as the character is too dull.

He says, “Han Solo isn’t interesting to me. It’s a very narrow sort of utility in the story and it was great for my career and it was fun to play at the time but I wouldn’t go back there again. Those pants!

“There are characters that it seems to me are worth re-exploring given that the story advances your understanding of the character, deepens your relationship to that character and takes you into an area that’s new and unexpected.

“Some characters are decidedly one off kind of characters. Some characters don’t outlive the movie.”

Harrison Ford shows off his whip-cracking Indy skills

Harrison Ford

Harrison Ford proved there were no camera tricks involved in enhancing his whip-cracking skills in the new Indiana Jones movie – by giving a demonstration on live TV.

The 65-year-old reprises his role as the swashbuckling archaeologist in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, 19 years after the last big screen adventure.

And Ford showed he shares his character’s talents with a whip on breakfast show Good Morning America on Thursday.

With one crack of the whip, Ford catapulted a set of empty milk cartons with a single crack of his Indy whip – the same one he used in the movie.’

But Ford was humbled by his seamless stunt, revealing he needed a refresher course, almost two decades after he last picked up the weapon: “I was a bit out of practice, and fortunately we had (fight director) Anthony (Delongis).”

Harrison Ford refused to cover his grey hair for Indy role

Harrison Ford

Harrison Ford refused to dye his grey hair for the new Indiana Jones movie.

Filmmakers Steven Spielberg and George Lucas wanted him to cheat the ageing process by covering his silver streaks – but 65-year-old Ford fought them and won.

Ford says, “There was some early discussion about whether or not that would be a good idea. And I thought , ‘Why can’t Indiana Jones have grey hair? What’s the difference?’ And finally I did prevail. Look at (directors) George (Lucas) and Steven (Spielberg) – a bunch of grey-haired guys. It was their idea.”
