It would be very common for celebrities to start young in their career. It didn't happen so to Harrison Ford for the pinnacle of his career only came at the ripe age of 35 when he attained a big role in "Star Wars" (1977) as Han Solo, the mischief Luke Skywalker's team member. Although there was a bumpy ride to go up the hill, the rest of the ride was all downhill. In 2002, the total salary he grasped reached up to $100M for 11 films, with Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise and Mel Gibson tailing behind. The record would definitely nail him as the most bankable actor in history. Ford's effort to gain success was fascinatingly by a strange quirk of fate. Many interesting 'by-chance' incidents in his pre-famous life led him to what he is now.
