Indiana Jones Voted Greatest Movie Character of All Time

Harrison Ford is certainly one of the most bankable actors in the world at the moment. He has headlined many famous and profitable franchises in the movie world and recently received another feather for his cap. According to a recent poll conducted by Total Film Magazine, the whip-cracking Indiana Jones was voted by the fans as the greatest movie character of all time. Total Film Magazine had compiled a list of 100 characters after surveying more than 8,000 fans. Surprisingly, another character played by Harrison Ford, Han Solo secured the third spot in the poll. The evergreen character of Batman shockingly came in second. Only 2 female characters managed to break in the top 10 with Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley from the Aliens franchise securing the fourth spot and Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia managing to make it to the 10th place on the poll. Total Film’s editor Matt Maytum had this to say about the interesting poll:

“Great characters make great movies: it’s that simple. So it was about time we held another poll to find out who is considered the greatest movie character of all time. It was fascinating seeing which movie stars were as popular as ever, as well as the dominant new franchises that are shaping the film landscape, and the classic cinematic icons that are still revered and respected. We’re hoping that the list will inspire the same heated debated for our readers as we had in the office. Whoever your personal favorite is, there will be a cover for everyone.”


Harrison Ford has appeared on the big screen as Indiana Jones four times starting from Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and most recently in Indiana Jones and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. He’s all set to appear as the iconic archaeologist for the fifth and final time in an untitled Indiana Jones 5 before retiring from the franchise for good.
