Of all the roles cast in the film industry some are good, some are bad, and some are absolutely legend—wait for it—dary! Legendary!

One of these roles is that of Han Solo, and as the majority of us know by now... (spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens).

He tragically died at the hands of his son Kylo Ren/Ben Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But his legacy will live on throughout the rest of this new trilogy, and indeed the entirety of pop culture.

But something that you never knew you that desperately needed to see to survive is just how Harrison Ford became the legendary outlaw Han Solo. Fortunately, we will survive, because the rare video, in which Ford reads a version of the scene in which Luke, Han, Ben and Chewbacca find the remains of Alderaan. It's a great scene in the film, as they see the sheer power of the Empire at its might, and it is a big moment for Han, who slowly starts to realize that he cannot allow the Empire to go on this way.

The iconic tone of voice which Ford used for Solo, and still does, was already there when he auditioned. It's different for all characters he plays, and it's wonderful that he didn't need any instruction to find that voice, to find Han Solo. I can see why he got this part over anyone else, that audition is truly mind blowing, and really doesn't feel any different to actually watching the character on screen anymore. I can't see other people in the role, and I wouldn't want to.

Of course, we will see someone else in the role when the solo Han Solo film comes out in 2018. Who do you think we will see in the role?
