Harrison Ford is an American actor best known for his performances as the tough, wisecracking space pilot Han Solo in the Star Wars film series, and the adventurous archaeologist/action hero in the Indiana Jones film series.

At one point Ford had roles in the top five box-office hits of all time, though his role in 1982's E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (as Elliot's school principal) was deleted from the final cut of the film.
Five of his films have been inducted into the National Film Registry.
As of May 2007, the combined domestic box office grosses of Ford's films total approximately $3.10-billion, with worldwide grosses approaching the $6-billion mark, making Ford the number-three all-time domestic box-office star behind Eddie Murphy and Tom Hanks.
He was ranked #1 in Empire magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list.
Ford was married to Mary Marquardt from 18 June 1964 - 1979. The marriage ended in divorce and the couple had two children.
