Harrison Ford (born July 13, 1942) is an American actor, aviator and environmental activist. He initially gained worldwide fame for his starring role as Han Solo in the original trilogy (1977–1983) of the Star Wars film franchise and would eventually reprise the role for the first film of the sequel trilogy. Ford is also widely known for his portrayal of the title character in the Indiana Jones action-adventure film series and as Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan in the spy thrillers Patriot Games (1992) and Clear and Present Danger (1994), in addition to playing Rick Deckard in the neo-noir dystopian science fiction film Blade Runner (1982) and its sequel Blade Runner 2049 (2017).

Once described by film critic Roger Ebert as "the great modern movie everyman", Ford's career spans six decades and includes roles in many highly successful Hollywood films. Some of his most popular films include the Best Picture-nominated epic war drama Apocalypse Now (1979), the Best Picture-nominated romantic thriller Witness (1985), in which Ford was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor, the legal drama Presumed Innocent (1990), the Best Picture-nominated action drama The Fugitive (1993), the political action thriller Air Force One (1997), the supernatural suspense thriller What Lies Beneath (2000), and the biographical sports drama 42 (2013). Seven of his films have been inducted into the National Film Registry: American Graffiti (1973), The Conversation (1974), Star Wars (1977), Apocalypse Now (1979), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) and Blade Runner (1982).
