Harrison Ford has revealed that his daughter suffers from epilepsy.
At a gala for the charity Find a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures (“FACES”) the actor told the New York Daily News that his 26-year-old daughter Georgia Ford has the condition. “She is joining me to thank FACES,” he said. “I admire a lot of things about her. I admire her perseverance, her talent, her strength. She’s my hero. I love her.”
During a speech, Harrison talked about the difficulty of getting Georgia diagnosed. Fortunately, she hasn’t had a seizure in eight years.
Georgia is Harrison’s daughter with his second wife, the late screenwriter Melissa Mathison.
