Harrison Ford

Born: July 13, 1942, Chicago, Illinois - USA

Harrison Ford is an American actor and film producer.

He gained worldwide fame for his starring roles as Han Solo in the “Star Wars” film series and as the title character of the “Indiana Jones” film series.

Ford is also known for his roles as Rick Deckard in the neo-noir dystopian science fiction film “Blade Runner” (1982) and its sequel “Blade Runner 2049” (2017); John Book in the thriller “Witness” (1985), for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor; and Jack Ryan in the action films “Patriot Games” (1992) and “Clear and Present Danger” (1994).

His career spans six decades and includes roles in several Hollywood blockbusters; including the epic war film “Apocalypse Now” (1979); the legal drama “Presumed Innocent” (1990); the action film “The Fugitive” (1993); the political action thriller “Air Force One” (1997); and the psychological thriller “What Lies Beneath” (2000).

Seven of his films have been inducted into the National Film Registry: “American Graffiti” (1973), “The Conversation” (1974), “Star Wars” (1977), “Apocalypse Now” (1979), “The Empire Strikes Back” (1980), “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981) and “Blade Runner” (1982).

As of 2016, the U.S. domestic box-office grosses of Ford's films total over US$4.7 billion, with worldwide grosses surpassing $6 billion, making Ford the second highest-grossing U.S. domestic box-office star.

Ford is one of Hollywood's most private actors, guarding much of his personal life. He has two sons, Benjamin (born 1966) and Willard (born 1969), with his first wife, Mary Marquardt, to whom he was married from 1964 until their divorce in 1979.

With his second wife, screenwriter Melissa Mathison, whom he married in March 1983 and from whom he was separated in August 2001 and eventually divorced, he has two more children, Malcolm and Georgia (born 1990).

Ford began dating actress Calista Flockhart after meeting at the 2002 Golden Globes, and together they are parents to her adopted son, Liam (born 2001). Ford proposed to Flockhart over Valentine's Day weekend in 2009. They married on June 15, 2010, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where Ford was filming “Cowboys & Aliens”.

In her 2016 autobiography The Princess Diarist, Carrie Fisher claimed that she and Ford had a three-month affair in 1976 during the filming of “Star Wars”.
