PEOPLE – Like Han Solo, Harrison Ford himself has finally awakened to the force of Star Wars. He’s come a long way from wanting to kill off the popular character while making the original movie trilogy to now playing a crucial role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

 

“It might have felt silly, but it didn’t,” Ford, 73, says in PEOPLE’s Star Wars special issue of reprising his role as Han Solo. “It was fun to work with [director] J.J. Abrams, who brought great energy, passion and clear focus to the whole event. So I had a good time.”

 

While Han Solo was the breakout performance that launched Ford to Hollywood stardom and iconic roles including Indiana Jones and Jack Ryan, the actor has never been a Star Wars fanboy. As Ford told PEOPLE after the 1977 premiere of the first movie, Star Wars was “a silly movie but wonderfully made.”
