Blade Runner Returns   

"You edit your experience, you edit your understanding."

    That's how Harrison Ford responded when a reporter in Tokyo asked him how he created the wide variety of characters he plays.

    And that is just what the Hollywood superstar did in bringing the iconic character Rick Deckard back to the screen in his new film "Blade Runner 2049," the sequel to the 1982 sci‐fi classic "Blade Runner," in which he played the same character.

    "I'm delighted to have the opportunity … to see a Rick Deckard 35 years later, and to recognize the passage of time and to follow that character at a different stage of his life, facing the consequences of how he's lived before. This is a very interesting prospect for me as an actor," Ford said in Tokyo on Oct. 23.

    In the movie, set 30 years after the original, "K" (Ryan Gosling), a special police officer known as a "blade runner" who hunts escaped androids called "replicants," embarks on an important mission that leads him to Ford's character Rick Deckard - a former blade runner who has long been missing.

    Commenting on the international appeal of the film, Ford stated, "What does it mean to be human? What does it mean to control your own destiny? … The questions of this film are international in nature. And I think that's part of the key to its success and the reception it's receiving around the world."

    In the sequel, Ford's character finds himself in dangerous situations - just like in the original - but this is something that the legendary 75‐year‐old actor feels enhances the impact of the movie. "You have to put your characters in jeopardy," he said. "Because without the jeopardy - without the danger, without the fear that the character feels and that you as an audience emotionally connect with - then overcoming the circumstances, the triumph, is not as sweet."
