The world just witnessed the softer side of Harrison Ford as he became a bit emotional discussing the final installment of the Indiana Jones franchise.

Promoting Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, Ford sat down with BBC Radio 1's Ali Plumb and shared what he believes makes the Indy films so special to fans.

Aside from the actors and and directors, Ford contributed the resonance to emotion.

“I think the thing that I most admire about them is the depth and subtlety of the emotion, and the importance of emotion in these films."

He continued:

“As this last one concerns age and frailty and changing nature of life, it was especially compelling to me because I am of that age and I wanted it to feel real for the audience."
"I wanted them to see the complexity of that experience with someone they’ve spent 40 years with.”

Plumb then expressed a sentiment on behalf of all fans that caught the actor completely off guard.

“Can I just say on behalf of all the fans, thank you. It’s been such an adventure.”
“We love you so much. I don’t want to make you blush or anything, but you mean the world to us and thank you.”

Ford, fighting tears, emotionally replied:

“And I must say to you thank you sincerely.”
“It means the world to me.”
