Working as a carpenter at the time, Harrison Ford was picked for the role that would change his career because he worked well with his co-stars. The role was the good hearted, but arrogant space pilot Han Solo in "STAR WARS". He became a romantic leading man in the second installment and also became the romantic star as the hero of Lucas and Steven Spielberg's "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (1981) and subsequent "Indiana Jones" chronicles.

Before than he was then, phenomenal success was not his. After a brief stint as a film actor in the late 1960s, Ford turned to carpentry for five years. He returned to Hollywood in George Lucas' "American Graffiti". But it was after "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" that he became the star we know now.

After "Indiana Jones" he continued his "cult movie" tradition as the  android killing cop in "Blade Runner", but proved capable of a wider emotional range as Peter in Weir's "Witness". Ford followed up this performance with a somewhat problematic "The Mosquito Coast". Thereafter Ford settled into a comfortable box-office plateau for the rest of the 1980s and on into the 90's. Teaming up with Sean Connery, he bid farewell to Dr. Jones in Spielberg's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade". He played a series of intelligent, beleaguered professionals in a variety of mainstream romantic and action films. He provided the tense emotional core for Roman Polanski's "Frantic". In "Regarding Henry" he gained another chance to explore the vulnerable side of his star persona. Till this day Ford remains well sought after leading men.
