Veel heisa omtrent het gebroken been van Harrison Ford op de set van ‘Episode VII’, maar tijdens het filmen van ‘Temple of Doom’ moest Ford een operatie aan de rug ondergaan en was hij eveneens zes weken onbeschikbaar.
Harrison Ford: “My back was injured by riding elephants. It was a spinal injury and that was difficult, obviously. Luckily, I had a very good relationship with stuntman Vic Armstrong – he is a really smart guy at devising how these things would and could be done. But he also understands storytelling. I found him to be very wise about Indiana: he added things to the character.”
