Harrison Ford has announced his retirement from the iconic role of Indiana Jones following the release of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. However, the move does not mark his departure from the world of acting entirely. In an interview with CNN and Max’s Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace? scheduled for June 23, Ford expresses his amusement at the idea of retiring and emphasizes his love for work.
At 81 years old, Ford states that he loves to work and feels useful. He attributes his continued passion for acting to the people he collaborates with and the creative process. He finds fulfillment in bringing scripts to life and allows himself to be naturally influenced by the projects he works on.
Ford’s other projects
While Ford’s time with Indy is coming to an end, he has other projects in the works. His involvement in the second seasons of the Apple TV+ comedy Shrinking and the Paramount+ drama 1923 will resume once the writers’ strike is resolved. Additionally, Ford has been filming for the Marvel film Captain America: Brave New World in Atlanta, where he portrays US President Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross.
Despite his age, Ford believes that age should not limit his enthusiasm for acting. With Dial of Destiny, he wanted to embrace his stage of life and ensure it was an integral part of the story. Ford aims for the film to explore age without resorting to jokes or clichés, using it to enhance the narrative instead.
Ford’s approach to retirement
Ford’s approach to retirement is unconventional. He believes that age should not limit his enthusiasm for acting and aims to continue being involved in the industry. He does not meticulously plan his approach to scenes or feel obligated to adhere to certain norms. Instead, he allows himself to be naturally influenced by the projects he works on.
