After American Graffiti, Harrison Ford became a professional carpenter to take care of his wife and family, due to the poor roles that he was being offered. He has installed several carpentry projects for several famous people, including Sally Kellerman. He had even worked as a stagehand for The Doors. Then, George Lucas approached Ford about appearing in Star Wars. Lucas came across Ford after the actor installed some cabinetry in Lucas’s house. The Star Wars franchise saved Ford’s acting career, propelling him into roles such as Indiana Jones.
