A graduate of Wisconsin’s Ripon College, Harrison Ford studied philosophy and then turned to carpentry when he wasn’t landing the roles he’d hoped for in LA. The Chicago native landed an audition with George Lucas a few years later, earning a role in American Graffiti. After appearing in several movies, Ford earned his iconic role of Han Solo, and a star was officially born.
The rest of the Star Wars franchise as well as the Indiana Jones trilogy launched him into superstardom. As of 2020, Ford is the seventh highest-grossing domestic box office actor of all time, with his films earning more than $5.4 billion in the U.S.
