Harrison Ford  –   The force is with him

Nehézségi szint: KÖZÉPFOK B2 (Szerző: Chris Scully)

Harrison Fordot leginkább a vagány, cinikus űrpilóta, Han Solo szerepében az eredeti Csillagok háborúja trilógiában, és a kalandvágyó régészprofesszor, Dr. Henry „Indiana” Jones Jr. megformálójaként az Indiana Jones-filmsorozatban ismerhettük meg.

1)Harrison Ford was born July 13, 1942 Chicago, Illinois, USA. His rugged good looks and charm have elevated him to a living icon and comparisons with Gregory Peck. Though he discovered himself as an actor only later in life during his last year at University of Wisconsin as a way to overcome his shyness.

2)He is of Irish, German, Russian and Jewish stock, he says as a man he thinks himself Irish, but as an actor he is Jewish.

3)He has lived a blessed life as an actor. His honest face suited him to leading male roles and he often plays the hero. Also, he is attracted to ordinary characters who show courage to get the job done. This combination has led him to secure roles in some legendary franchises. These include his role as Hans Solo in Star Wars from the 1970s onwards to Indiana Jones from the 1980s on. He also starred in cult films such as Blade Runner.

4)As well as this he has done documentary voice over work. In the early days of the 1970s to support himself financially he worked as a carpenter. The profits that his movies have made world-wide total over 5 billion dollars and up until 2000 he was considered one of the top paid actors in the world.

Personal life

5)Ford was married to Mary Marquardt from 1964 until they divorced in 1979. Then he was married to Melissa Mathison from 1983 until they divorced in 2004. Then he was married to Calista Flockhart since 2010. He has two sons, Benjamin and Willard with Marquardt and a son, Malcolm and a daughter, Georgia with Mathison. Ford now lives in Los Angeles, California.

6)Ford is a licensed pilot of both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. He has personally provided emergency helicopter services when local authorities asked him, he rescued a hiker overcome by dehydration
