The Best Kind Of Interruption During An Interview Ever

One of the things I love most about the film world is when the community of actors and filmmakers, embrace and support each other. This video of Harrison Ford surprising new Han Solo actor Alden Ehrenreich just makes my day. This raw phone footage was released only one day ago and is sweeping the internet.

It’s clear director Ron Howard enjoyed playing the prank on his young star, and the room got a big laugh when Ford told Ehrenreich to “get out of my chair.” But the best part is watching this clip below from ET. Howard and Ford didn’t try to steal the limelight, but instead were championing the newcomer to the Star Wars family.

This definitely left a smile on my face and made me appreciate my own community of film friends, hope it inspires you to keep encouraging yours too!
