Harrison Ford's Reddit AMA Q&A
Bespin refugee - April 13, 2014





Earlier today (4/13/14), Harrison Ford became the latest member of the Original Trilogy cast* to participate in a Reddit AMA Q&A, answering posted questions on anything from his iconic movie roles, to some his more recent projects. Here are some of the Star Wars related highlights:

Question: How did you feel about Star Wars when you first started? How were you approached?

Harrison Ford: I was approached with the offer of a job, which at that point, was all I wanted to hear. I had helped George Lucas audition other actors for the principle parts, and with no expectation or indication that I might be considered for the part of Han, I was quite surprised when I was offered the part. My principle job at the time was carpentry, I had been under contract as an actor at Columbia and Universal. I had a house at the time I wanted to remodel, a bit of the wreck of a house. I'd invest money in tools but wouldn't have money for materials, so I realized this was another way of putting food on the table. And allowing me to pick and choose from the acting jobs that were being offered at the time.

Question: Hi Mr, Ford. I think we would all like to know: Who shot first? Han Solo or Greedo?

Harrison Ford: I don't know and I don't care.

Question: Did you ad lib Han's famous line "I know"?

It's not really an ad lib, it was a suggestion, and movie making's a real collaborative process at its best. You don't ad lib it, you suggest it and then you try something in rehearsal and then you agree. So it was my suggestion, because I thought it was more of a character line than what was written, but the director and Carrie and I all thought it was a good idea at the time so we did it.

Question: Did you keep any props from any of your movies, if so which ones are your favorite?

Harrison Ford: No, I don't keep any, I'm not terribly nostalgic and I don't have a lot of things from my movies. And certainly don't have a lot of them around my house. Those are separate worlds for me.

Question: Are you still mad at Lando?

Harrison Ford: Lando who?

Question: If you and Mark Hamill fought who would win?

Harrison Ford: Me, of course.

Question: Can you elaborate on what happened between you and Chewbacca that lead to you having a falling out?

Harrison Ford: Ha. Well that was a skit for Kimmel, I think. With his writers, the idea behind it was that Chewbacca had borrowed my fictional wife.

Question: Who did you prefer portraying, Han or Indiana?

Harrison Ford: I think Indiana Jones was a lot of fun to do because of the places we went to and the adventures and the action. But Han Solo was also a huge part of my life.

Question: Hello Harrison! Who would win in a celebrity boxing match: Han Solo or Indiana Jones?

Harrison Ford: The promoter would win.

Question: Hey! First I'd like to say when I was younger I use to think Indiana Jones played Han Solo in Star Wars. I was corrected many times but still didn't quite understand as a five year old. My question, what was it like being a part of two of the most iconic film series? Thank you for all your work!

Harrison Ford: What was it like? It was like being incredibly lucky.


Someone said thank you for being a part of so many childhood films: Well, thank you. I really appreciate that. It's a privilege to be able to be involved with people as talented as the people I've had the luck to work with, and it's just been a great experience for me, and I'm glad that so many of the films I've had the luck to do were films that could be enjoyed by families together.
