I’ve never really seen Harrison Ford getting very emotional in Interviews, but for Sean Connery, who passed away last weekend at the age of 90, he made an exception.
“He was my father…not in life…but in ‘Indy 3,’” Ford said in a statement to Variety. “You don’t know pleasure until someone pays you to take Sean Connery for a ride in the side car of a Russian motorcycle bouncing along a bumpy, twisty mountain trail and getting to watch him squirm. God, we had fun — if he’s in heaven, I hope they have golf courses. Rest in peace, dear friend.”
Here’s the scene in question:
Connery played the role of Henry Jones, Sr., Indiana Jones’ dad in the 1989 adventure movie “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.”
