Harrison's Han job
09:30 03 March 2006
Harrison Ford wanted to kill off his 'Star Wars' character, Han Solo.
The actor wanted the intergalactic rogue to meet his maker after the third and final film, 'Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi', but couldn't convince creator George Lucas to go along with the idea.
He revealed: "I did think the character was relatively thin.
"I would have liked to see some complication for the character; the only complication I didn't get was to die at the end of the third one.
"I thought that would have given the whole film a bottom, but I couldn't talk George into it."
Meanwhile, Ford admits he hates being famous.
The star - who dates former 'Ally McBeal' star Calista Flockhart - claims he can't go anywhere unnoticed.
He revealed to Britain's Empire magazine: "Celebrity is a pain in the ass. I think the loss of anonymity is the greatest trade you make.
"There's no way to imagine what the loss of anonymity will do to your life until you differ it."
