Brazilian musician Sèrgio Mendes shared a throwback photo on Facebook from 1970, featuring a then 28-year-old Ford the day he finished building a recording studio:
BE STILL OUR HEARTS!
The legendary actor revealed in a recent Reddit Ask Me Anything how his carpentry work led him to his starring role in Star Wars! He shared:
"I had helped George Lucas audition other actors for the principle parts, and with no expectation or indication that I might be considered for the part of Han, I was quite surprised when I was offered the part. My principle job at the time was carpentry, I had been under contract as an actor at Columbia and Universal. I had a house at the time I wanted to remodel, a bit of the wreck of a house. I'd invest money in tools but wouldn't have money for materials, so I realized this was another way of putting food on the table. And allowing me to pick and choose from the acting jobs that were being offered at the time."
Whether he's 28 or 73, Ford can saw us in half anytime!
