HARRISON Ford was announced this afternoon as the top star chosen for Borehamwood’s Hollywood-style Walk of Fame.

Voting ended this weekend with more than 1000 votes cast to choose the stars, whose names will be laid in the pavement outside Elstree & Borehamwood train station.

This is part of a £650,000 project to rejuvenate Borehamwood with a film theme running through the booking office, waiting room, platforms and out onto Shenley Road, to celebrate the area’s film and television history.

Elstree Screen Heritage and the Elstree & Borehamwood Town Council organised the Name That Star campaign.

Other stars to be included on the remaining ten stars are Dame Julie Andrews, Sir Sean Connery, Sir Alec Guinness, Jim Henson, Patrick Macnee, Patrick McGoohan, Jack Nicholson, Gregory Peck, Peter Sellers and On the Buses star Reg Varney.

Paul Welsh, chairman of Elstree Screen Heritage, said: “It is very interesting that people have gone for stars of the era from the Fifties onwards.

“People like Stewart Granger and Ray Milland, who were big names in their day, didn’t get in. Harrison Ford made seven films in Borehamwood and the big ones were obviously Star Wars and Indiana Jones, which were the most iconic and of course since he’s acting now he’s still very popular.

“We’ve honoured Steven Spielburg and George Lucas with plaques in the high street so it is good we have an opportunity to honour Harrison now.

“The list is a good mix of television and film and of Hollywood and British stars so we’re very pleased with the results.”

Commenting on the one female star to appear on the list, Mr Welsh continued: “There were other female stars including Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Winslet but people didn’t choose those.

“I’m not sure why that is but is may be the male action heroes stayed in the mind of people who live here.”

What do you think of the stars chosen? Do you think it represents the town's film and television heritage well?
