His shooting schedule for Star Wars: Episode VII has been delayed due to his broken leg, but Harrison Ford appears to be proving he's ready to get back to work as soon as possible.

Harrison Ford Feels Like 'A Battered Old Car?'

The 71-year-old actor, who broke his leg on the Star Wars set after a door for his character's Millenium Falcon spaceship fell on him, was spotted out in London June 29 using a prosthetic leg as he made his way down a flight of stairs outside the exclusive 34 restaurant in Mayfair.

However, despite needing the prosthetic in order to get around on his injured leg, the actor reportedly refused any assistance from his friends, determined to walk around himself.

Harrison Ford's Broken Leg Putting 'Indiana Jones' Movie At Risk?

The refusal to have help shows the actor's determination to recover as quickly as possible so he can return to the set and continue filming, which could also help him with other future film projects -- including the rumored upcoming Indiana Jones 5 movie.

Speculation has run rampant that the film will be announced soon, but there have been endless reports that Ford would be replaced by a younger actor due to his age. However, the actor has not been worried about being replaced and has made several comments over the years about how his age doesn't stop him from taking on such an action-packed role.

"I don't think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart," he said last year. "I'm old enough that we don't need [Sean] Connery anymore -- I'm old enough to play my own father."
