Following ''A New Hope'', Ford was kept pretty busy with smaller films, as soon was cast as AdventureArchaeologist Franchise/IndianaJones in the Lucas-produced and Spielberg-directed ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' (after original choice Creator/TomSelleck was unable to get released from his ''Series/MagnumPI'' contract.) It became the biggest box office hit of 1981 and cemented him as an A-List star. With Indy, it made him one of the few actors who are recognizable for ''two'' incredibly iconic movie characters (alongside Creator/SylvesterStallone for Film/{{Rocky}} and Franchise/{{Rambo}}, and Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger for Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian and [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} The Terminator]]). He followed up with three more ''Franchise/StarWars'' films and three more ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' films. In 1982 he starred in Creator/RidleyScott's "future noir", ''Film/BladeRunner'', which initially lost money and received mixed reviews but has since become one of the critical darlings of the 1980's and has achieved a cult following.

Born on July 13, 1942 in Chicago, Illinois, Harrison Ford spent his early acting career in a degree of minor roles while working as a carpenter, in fact he was so successful as a contractor he would pick and choose movies versus projects. This includes creating a massive customized book shelf for Francis Ford Coppola's home office.

He's apparently got a long standing feud with Chewbacca, the Wookie sack of shit. Something involving his wife. See [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7T0vs9gYydo here]] for more details.

* 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.
