Harrison Ford was born in Chicago in international family: his father - an Irishman, his mother - a Russian Jew.

The guy was lucky - studio "Columbia" seeking for young actors, and Ford quickly offered a contract. Already in 1966 he made his debut in film, starting with tiny roles in westerns and television series.
When Michelangelo Antonioni cut scene with his participation from the "Zabriskie Point" (1969), Ford nearly abandoned film career. But in 1973 he starred in the surprisingly successful film of George Lucas' "American Graffiti" (which had continued "Once again on American Graffiti," 1979), and then played with Francis Ford Coppola at the Cannes winner "Conversation" (1974). So Ford's acting career began to gradually build. To play Han Solo in "Star Wars" claimed by the then unknown to anyone, Christopher Walken and Nick Nolte. Good luck to Ford, he worked for a small fee (George Lucas, as is known, is famous for thrift), but received a percentage of the profits, the young actor became a millionaire.

Ford, for many unexpected successfully blended into the paranoid world of Polanski's finding for his character and cynical comic overtones.
However, Ford did not often removed in comedies. And if withdrawn, then the only incarnation of almost fairy-tale American Prince, a lonely millionaire, who wait their Cinderella. These, he appeared in "Business Woman" (1988) Mike Nichols and "Sabrina" (1995) Sydney Pollack (nominated for a Golden Globe).
