  • Many know Melissa Mathison as the former wife of actor Harrison Ford. The two were married from 1983 to 2004 and had two children together. Mathison also involved herself in the movie industry in her own right, notably penning the script for E.T., as well as for The Indian in the Cupboard and Kundun. She reunited with E.T. director Steven Spielberg to write the screenplay for Spielberg's 2016 adaptation of Roald Dahl's The BFG, but passed away, at age 65, before the film was released.
