Harrison Ford

Harrison Ford was born on July 13, 1942 in Chicago, IL. He is the son of Dorothy, a former radio actress, and Christopher, an actor who became an advertising executive. Ford first gave acting a shot while a student at Ripon College in Wisconsin, but he did not earn a degree. He, did however, leave college with the first love of his life, Mary Marquart. They wed on June 18, 1964 and had two children together, Ben and Willard, before divorcing in 1979. Ben is an accomplished chef who owns the restaurant Ford’s Filling Station in Los Angeles. Ford married twice more. His second wife was “ET: The Extra-Terrestrial” writer Melissa Mathison. They were married from 1983-2004. He fathered two children with her as well, Malcolm and Georgia. Ford has been married to actress Calista Flockhart since June 15, 2010. They have one son, Liam, who Flockhart had adopted prior to marrying Ford. Ford has an interesting casting story. He was a carpenter in Hollywood and was hired by George Lucas to build cabinets. The two hit it off and he offered Ford a role in “American Graffiti” in 1973. The two would, of course, work together several more times while filming the “Star Wars” series, in which he portrays Han Solo. Ford is also known for the character Indiana Jones. However, it was his part in 1985’s “Witness,” that earned him an Oscar nomination. The actor is a licensed pilot and cheated death on March 2, 2015 when his small plane crashed on a golf course in Venice, California due to engine failure. He recovered and returned to the sky, but had another close call in February 2017 when he flew his small plane over a commercial aircraft as he landed in Orange County, CA.
