In 1994, Ford shared a story on “The Tonight Show“ about filming an episode of “Gunsmoke.” In a scene where he dies, his gun bounced up and knocked out his front teeth.
He tore his ACL twice, while filming “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and “The Fugitive,” and he injured his spine during “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.”
''I do as much as possible because, with Indiana Jones, there are so many opportunities for characterization in the physical action. Really, that is the character — and in these moments of action you see Indiana Jones most clearly,'' he said.
Even after a hydraulic door slammed closed on his left leg, breaking both bones on the set of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” he still refused to let stunt doubles take his place, telling the Daily Star Sunday, “I do running, jumping, falling down. I hit people, get hit — but I don’t see those as stunts.”
