Disney cast member Kevin Brassard originated the title role in the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular at Walt Disney World more than 30 years ago. And one of his greatest adventures just happened following a surprise invite to the premiere of “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.”
On the red carpet – Indy met Indy! Kevin got the chance to spend time with “the inspiration” for his entire career – Harrison Ford. The actor greeted Kevin and his guest, fellow Disney stunt performer Michele Waitman, listening closely to their special connection with Indiana Jones.
“When I said to him, ‘I’m the man that’s been lucky enough to portray Indiana Jones that you created for the past 34 years,’ he thanked me,” Kevin said in awe.
On the red carpet, Kevin and Michele were stars to many who’ve seen them perform in the popular show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. They also connected across the legacy of the Indiana Jones franchise with stars and creatives of the film.
