While promoting the latest release, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the actor was asked about the dark knight’s look compared to the good guy from the original trilogy of Star Wars. Ford, though, had nothing negative to say about the new look. Instead, he was happy to see both old and new Star Wars films in the same frame of time – especially the dark knight.
Ford maintained that he is yet to meet his net worth as an actor, saying he has yet to get into the kind of things he did on the set of any of the films. However, he quipped that he was working on new films that he will be able to share with his fans even when he is not acting. Ford also cited the success of the Harry Potter franchise as one of the reasons why he is still relevant even after decades of being on screen.

We’ll just have to wait and see what he can deliver.
