LOS ANGELES: Harrison Ford is to auction off his iconic Han Solo costume to help an American medical centre treating his daughter find a cure for epilepsy.
The “Star Wars” hero has become synonymous with the brown jacket he has donned for the movie franchise, including a leather version he wore for the latest installment “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.
Now Harrison, 73, said the jacket is up for grabs at an upcoming auction, with proceeds going to the New York University’s Langone centre.
“I was wearing it throughout the film,” he said, confirming about the auction.
However, he admitted that he would have a difficult task getting it back off one of the doctors at the research facility.
Ford’s daughter Georgia Ford, 25, has not had an epileptic seizure for the past eight years after being treated at the NYU Langone.
Prior to that however, she was repeatedly misdiagnosed and was even prescribed migraine medicine for many years before getting a proper diagnosis as a teenager.
