Star Wars legend Harrison Ford participated in a Q&A over on Entertainment Weekly’s Tumblr today, and he was able to answer a fair amount of questions posed by fans. It wasn’t all about Star Wars, of course, but here are some of the highlights of his answers regarding the saga, including his feelings about the newest cast members and the fate of Han Solo.
Are you and John Boyega best friends?
Whatever John says…
What do you think of Adam Driver, what is he like to work with?
He’s an absolute pleasure. He works independently with real proper ambition. He brings a lot to the table. He’s a wonderful actor and a very kind, generous human being.
Who’s cuter, you or Daisy Ridley?
Daisy Ridley. But it’s close.
Who did you have the closest relationship with on the set of Star Wars?
JJ is very active in the shooting of his movies, what is your favorite quality that he possesses?
A kind intelligence.
On a film as big as Star Wars, with so many on-set explosions and green screens and CGI characters, are there tricks you use as an actor to stay focused and present and in character?
I focus on the kernel of story that needs to be given expression…serve the story.
Will you go to the Disney Star Wars park when it’s finished?
Sure. Why not.
Describe John Boyega in 3 words
Bright young man.
How do you feel about the ending in The Force Awakens? (I myself am heartbroken)
I think it’s a fitting use of the character. I’ve been arguing for Han Solo to die for about 30 years, not because I was tired of him or because he’s boring, but his sacrifice for the other characters would lend gravitas and emotional weight.
If the cast of The Force Awakens was stuck on an island, who would be the leader and why?
I would be the leader. Just cause. Although we’d end up having to listen to Carrie because if Mama’s not happy, nobody’s happy.
We know Indiana Jones hates snakes, but what about you, Harrison? What do you think about snakes? Love ’em? Hate ’em? Ugh-get-’em-off-me?
No, I don’t mind snakes at all. Next to John Boyega, they’re almost my new best friends.
