Washington, May 12 : He is easily one of the best actors in Hollywood, but Harrison Ford has revealed that he entered the acting profession by accident - after he enrolled for a drama class by mistake.
The 65-year-old Indian Jones star took up the subject hoping to get his grades raised, but he has confessed that he never thought what all had to be put into acting.
"I did it because my grade averages in philosophy were precarious because of my in attendance and poor attitude to scholarship. I only took drama because I didn't fully read the description of the class," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
He added: "I thought, 'Drama, how hard could that be?' If I knew you had to get up and act and be in plays I wouldn't have done it. When I found out what it involved it scared the bejesus out of me."
However, the Academy Award nominated actor soon realised that acting was all he wanted to do for the rest of his life.
"Before drama I never could figure out what I might be useful at. Then I thought about making a living as an actor. You get to travel and live different lives and study different kinds of lives," he said.
