Harrison Ford, 71, has been spotted wearing a pretty heavy duty leg accessory in order to help him get around and back to filming Star Wars: Episode VII after his accident on set during filming last month.
But it seems the action man is determined to fight back.
Inching his way down a flight of stairs outside London’s exclusive 34 restaurant in Mayfair last night, he used a prosthetic peg leg for support, refusing any assistance from friends.
The American star described himself as a ‘battered old Ford’ and said he prefers to do his own action stunts.
He said: ‘I keep on coming back for more. If it doesn’t look real on the screen then an audience does not believe what it sees.’
The actor, who has also pulled muscles and damaged a disc in his back during the Indiana Jones films, added: ‘Although I do my own running, jumping and falling, I always try to keep myself from being hurt. So I know what will work and what won’t.’
He may be getting older but he’s not giving up yet, and its great to see how enthusiastic he is about the film even after his accident. We wish a speedy recovery for Ford and are glad he is making his way back to continue filming,
