Amer­i­can 1942-present

No one’s face has been seen on cin­ema screens by more peo­ple in the Western world than Har­ri­son Ford’s. Get­ting his first no­table role at the age of 31 in 1973’s Amer­i­can Graf­fiti, few signs pointed to Ford be­com­ing a star. How­ever, af­ter play­ing Han Solo in the Star Wars films and Pro­fes­sor Jones in the In­di­ana Jones fran­chise, he had be­come the most pop­u­lar film ac­tor of all time by 1988. Ford still hasn’t re­lented that crown and has used his celebrity sta­tus to fight for en­vi­ron­men­tal causes and preser­va­tion is­sues.

As Ford will ap­pear in the up­com­ing Star Wars se­quel, he will prob­a­bly hold on to his ti­tle for a long time
