Frasi di Harrison Ford
Data di nascita: 13. Luglio 1942
Harrison Ford è un attore statunitense.
Tra la fine degli anni 1970 e l'inizio degli anni 1990, ha partecipato ad alcuni dei film statunitensi di maggiore successo di quel periodo. Molti dei personaggi interpretati da Ford consistono in eroi duri, decisi ma sempre lievemente autoironici, tra i quali i più noti sono il contrabbandiere spaziale Ian Solo nella serie di Guerre stellari di George Lucas, l'archeologo Indiana Jones nella tetralogia di film diretti da Steven Spielberg e prodotti dallo stesso Lucas, l'agente della CIA Jack Ryan in Giochi di potere e Sotto il segno del pericolo, e il cacciatore di replicanti Rick Deckard in Blade Runner di Ridley Scott.
Ford ha ricevuto l'unica candidatura all'Oscar per il miglior attore per Witness - Il testimone nel 1986, oltre a quattro nomination ai Golden Globe e una ai Premi BAFTA.
Frasi Harrison Ford
„I think I did have a reputation for being grumpy. I don't think I'm grumpy. I have opinions. I have an independent vision. I am a purposeful person. But on a daily basis, I think I'm other than grumpy. I think it is a case where I am coming to do business and not there just to be flattered and cajoled and used.“
„[Acknowledging that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg originally wanted another actor to play Indiana Jones]: "My playing Indy was mentioned to me about only six weeks before shooting started, but being second choice wasn't at all offensive. I would always assume that it would be normal for a director - once having worked with an actor in a particular part - not to think of him for something else. I'd presume that he'd want to accentuate the difference between the two characters by having another actor. I was more than happy when they did ask me to play Indiana Jones, because it promised to be a terrific role in a great film.“
„[After his first screen test] The studio guy told me, "Kid, you have no future in this business." I said, "Why?" He said, "When Tony Curtis first walked onscreen carrying a bag of groceries -- a bag of groceries! -- you took one look at him and said, 'THAT'S a movie star!'" I said, "Weren't you supposed to say, 'That's a grocery delivery boy?'“
