'Star Wars' Actor Harrison Ford Dismisses 'The Force Awakens' Nostalgia: 'I Didn't Get Goosebumps, I Got A Paycheck'

Harrison Ford Dismisses 'Star Wars' Nostalgia

While ‘Star Wars’ fans the world over are getting ready for a nostalgia-fest as ‘The Force Awakens’ finally hits cinemas, it turns out one person less interested in a stroll down memory lane is the films’ original star, Harrison Ford.


Over 30 years after last playing Han Solo in ‘Return Of The Jedi’, Harrison has reprised his role for the seventh instalment of the sci-fi franchise, though it sounds like he was less interested in a nostalgia kick than you might have thought.

Speaking to reporters at the film’s European premiere on Wednesday night, he admitted: “I didn't get goosebumps when I went back on set, no. I got a paycheck. It made me happy.

And while Harrison did admit it felt “great to revisit Han Solo as a character”, he drew a blank when quizzed about his best memories of shooting.

“I have a warm place in my heart for the people I worked with but the stuff itself doesn't make that much difference to me.

"Even getting on the Millennium Falcon didn't make me nostalgic, it's not like home. I know what my home looks like and it's not like that."

Also returning to the franchise are Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, who put an energetic display at the London premiere, throwing some hilarious poses with Stormtroopers on the red carpet.
