Julia Shlaepfer has quickly become one of 1923’s most beloved stars, fulfilling the role of Spencer Dutton’s spitfire love interest Alexandra. As we wait for the show’s return at the beginning of next month—and Spencer and Alexandra’s journey home to Montana—Schlaepfer is sharing her thrilling tale about her first meeting with 1923 headlining actor, Harrison Ford.
During an appearance on CBS’s The Talk, the 1923 star recalled that she, Ford, and her costar Brandon Sklenar (Spencer Dutton) were all taking a break during cowboy camp when she first approached him.
“Sitting on the fencepost of the arena,” Schlaepfer said, “was, like, a man, and I was like, ‘Huh, who is that? Who is Brandon talking to?’…and I walk up and I’m like, ‘oh hi, I’m Julia!’ like thinking it was another wrangler or something. No, it was Harrison Ford.”
However, during her appearance, the 1923 star humorously shared that Harrison Ford was “fully perched” on a high post, “like hanging out.”
“I’m Harrison,” the Hollywood icon told her, to which the 1923 star humorously said, “Yes, you are.”
Schlaepfer’s first introduction to Harrison Ford on the set of 1923 drew a laugh from the talk show’s hosts, but fans also shared their love for her and her acting style in the series. One fan commented, “I look forward to watching 1923. Julia you are a lovely gal, great style too!”
