For one-time carpenter Harrison Ford, acting is a craft
London, Jan 12 : For Hollywood legend Harrison Ford acting is not an art but a craft that he learnt, while he was a carpenter.
The screen legend, who has starred in some of the biggest films in the last 50 years, including the original "Star Wars" trilogy, the "Indiana Jones" movies and "Blade Runner", worked as a skilled craftsman for many years and believes the things he learned on the job have proved to be invaluable, reported femalefirst. co. uk
"When I was carpenter, I once worked with this Russian lady architect. I would tell her, 'Look, I'm terribly sorry, but I want to change that a half inch,' and she would say, 'No limit for better'," he said.
"I think that is a worthy credo. You keep on going until you get it as close to being right as the time and patience of others will allow," he added.
Due to his experience as a carpenter, the 67-year-old star doesn't perceive acting to be a vocation or job.
"I don't look at things from an art perspective. I look at them from a craft perspective," revealed Ford.(IANS)
