Star Wars actor Mark Hamill has branded Harrison Ford’s on-set accident “really terrible” but insists the Hollywood legend is now “doing really well”.
The Indiana Jones star, 71, broke his leg on the set of the new installment of the sci-fi franchise, Star Wars: Episode VII, last month (Jun14) in an accident involving a prop spaceship.
Ford returned to the U.S. after he was released from hospital and could be out of action for several months as he recovers from his injury, but his original Star Wars co-star Hamill, who also appears in the new movie, is adamant his pal will be back on his feet soon.
Hamill tells, “I was not on set. It sounded really terrible but I hear he’s doing really well. It will take more than that to stop Harrison Ford.”
The actor, who plays Luke Skywalker, adds of the Star Wars project, “It was certainly unexpected (to return). I (my character) already had a beginning, middle and end. I never thought we’d come back. I still can’t believe it’s happening… To go on to those sets that evoked so many memories. It is just astonishing.”
