Harrison Ford Remembers His Indiana Jones Dad Sean Connery in Touching Tribute

Harrison Ford and George Lucas spent some time honoring the late Sean Connery. The famous actor, and the first James Bond, died one weekend at the age of 90. Connerie’s wife, Micheline Rockbrune, 45, said that the actor suffered from dementia and noticed that he was unable to express himself in the months leading up to his death. It wasn’t life for him, Rockbreun said. At least he died in his sleep, and it was so peaceful.

Harrison Ford and Sean Connery shared the big screen in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade of 1989. Connery starred in the movie Henry Jones Sr., Indiana Jones’ father. The couple was the only thing Stephen Spielberg could think of when he got the casting for the sequel, and he finally got it. Ford should talk about working with Connery.

He was my father … not in life… …but in Indy 3. You won’t know the fun until someone pays you to take Sean Connery with you on a Russian motorcycle stroller, jump on a bumpy, winding mountain path and watch him wander. God, we had a great time. If he’s in heaven, I hope they have golf courses. Rest in peace, dear friend.

George Lucas is one of the authors of the Indiana Jones book and the Last Crusade, and he is happy to have Sean Connery on board. At the end of the eighties Connery was already a film legend, so it was very important for Lucas and Spielberg to play the role of Indiana Jones’ father in the film. In real life, Connery was only 12 years older than Ford. You can read below what Lucas said about his collaboration with Connery.

Sir Sean Connery left an indelible impression in the history of cinema thanks to his talent and energy. The audience has spread out over several generations, each with a favourite role. He’ll always have a special place in my heart, like Father Indy. With an atmosphere of intellectual authority and a refined sense of comic indecency, only a man like Sean Connery Indiana Jones with a hard, silent or joyful fatherly embrace could immediately turn into a childlike regret or relief. I’m grateful for the chance to know him and work with him. My thoughts are with his family.

There aren’t many actors who could play the father of a character like Indiana Jones, but Sean Connery gave the impression that he and Harrison Ford are related in real life. Already in 2006 George Lucas said that he wanted to inspire the actor for what eventually became Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2008. I wish he was in the next Indiana Jones… Maybe I can get him to, Lucas said.

Sean Connery didn’t get the role in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Connery announced his withdrawal from the film in 2006 and expressed his disappointment at the idiots who are now making films in Hollywood. In 2007, the actor denied the rumors that he would appear in the fourth story of Indiana Jones and announced that his resignation was simply too much fun. Harrison Ford and George Lucas Sean Connery were first announced by a Hollywood journalist.
