The actor we know as Han Solo and Indiana Jones use to be a struggling actor. He had small roles but not enough to pay the bills, so he became a self taught carpenter in his 30′s. At 29, he got a supporting role in George Lucas’ American Graffiti. He got the part after being hired to build cabinets in George’s house. But it wasn't until six years later, at the age of 35, when he starred as Hans Solo in Star Wars. He had his big break at an age when many of us think it’s too late to do anything with our lives.
