* DoingItForTheArt: He never intended to be a mega star, he just wanted to be a working character actor and that mindset remained throughout. He has made the goal of appearing in small roles in certain projects and attempts to disappear so that it doesn't overwhelm the film. He has also worked through legitimate injuries on set believing that his character would have been hurt too in some way, and add more tension seeing him limp.



* MethodActing: Will sometimes purposefully avoid memorizing his lines when he feels his character should be desperately reacting to the moment.
* NoStuntDouble: He has one, but reserves them for only the most difficult stunts. He does everything he can himself, but calls it "[[InsistentTerminology physical acting]]." He became close friends with his stunt man and stunt coordinator for Indiana Jones, Vic Armstrong, and [[SeparatedAtBirthCasting their resemblance]] was well noted.

Ford has become a very bankable actor (his work across 36 films has grossed a total of $3.6 billion; he was statistically the most bankable actor for many years until Creator/TomHanks and Creator/SamuelLJackson surpassed his numbers), starring in many famous and successful films, including ''Film/TheFugitive'', ''Film/AirForceOne''. He took over the Creator/TomClancy character Literature/JackRyan from Alec Baldwin (for ''Film/TheHuntForRedOctober'') in ''Film/PatriotGames'' and ''Film/ClearAndPresentDanger''.

** He is also a certified pilot who flies his own helicopters to performs rescue missions.
** Not to mention that he has repeatedly shrugged off accidents and injuries that would normally end the career, much less life, of actors at his age. During the filming of Film/TheForceAwakens, he suffered a leg injury that would normally take 9 months to heal. Yet Ford manages to quickly recovered and was giving promotional tours a mere month after the accident.
