Harrison Ford Was Almost Run Over By a 'Star Trek' Actor Because He Was Late For An Audition

Garrett Wang almost ran over Harrison Ford while on his way to an audition for Star Trek: Voyager.

The actor, who went on to play Ensign Harry Kim on the series, opened up about almost killing the Star Wars actor.

While speaking on the brand new The Delta Flyers podcast with fellow Voyager co-star Robert Duncan McNeill, Garrett opened up about the behind-the-scenes story of how he landed the role.

“I’m actually speeding around the [Paramount Studios] parking lot, and I come around this one bend, and this guy in a suit walks between two cars right in front of my car, so I slam on my brakes,” he recalled, adding, “You know when you almost have an accident; your heart is beating a thousand miles a minute? I lock eyes with this dude in the suit, and it’s Harrison Ford! I look at him, and I go ‘Oh my god! I almost killed Han Solo!’ I would have been hated by nerds everywhere!”

Garrett went on, revealing that he found out the reason Harrison was on the lot that day.

“I remember reading the Variety paper, our Hollywood trade paper, the next day, and on the front page was a photo that said ‘Harrison Ford at Paramount Studios for the Clear and Present Danger screening.’ He was there for that, based on the Tom Clancy novel, wearing that same suit I almost maimed him in,” he says. “He could have been a cripple, because of me.”

Just recently, Harrison was spotted out wearing his mask in an interesting way.
