So please don't be the hundredth person to send me Amanda Huginkiss, since that is not a real last name. And I have enough "Dick" names and other bawdy names. Same for Wayne King - it's just not that funny. There's one exception to my "must be real" rule.

He and my grandfather both wanted that to be my name because they thought it was hilarious, but my mom refused because she didn't want me to get made fun of as a child.

Finally, in our local phone book is a listing which appears as 'Miss, Kris' which, of course, would make her name 'Kris Miss. His wife changed the name on the birth certificate when she found out. I knew another girl who named her son Eddy Bair.

Sharon Stone and other women were considered for the role of Scott, but they declined. The character has received largely negative reviews, due to her whiny personality, constant need to be rescued and the fact that unlike Marion Ravenwood and Elsa Schneider she's unnecessary to the story outside of being a love interest. Che hires Indy to find the ashes of Nurhaci and promises him a valuable diamond in return. Indy recovers the ashes, but Che sends Kao Kan to steal the urn while Indy is sleeping, but Indy retains the urn and severs Kao's left forefinger, letting him live.

Indy shows up to Club Obi Wan to make the exchange; Che threatens Indy for the urn, but Indy takes Willie hostage to complete the exchange. Che gives Indy the diamond and an unknowingly poisoned drink; Indy gives Che the urn and drinks the poison, and Che offers the poison's antidote in exchange for returning the diamond.

Indy gives him the diamond, but Che refuses to give the antidote, even when Indy takes Willie hostage again.

Indy's friend, Wu, holds the gangster at gunpoint, but Chen shoots and kills him amidst a bunch of champagne bottles popping to mask the gunshot. Indy impales Chen with a skewer of pigeon flambé in retaliation and a gunfight ensues. Che orders the pilots to parachute out of the plane in hopes of killing Indy when the plane crashes, but Indy deploys a raft and lands safely on the ground. Ric Young , the actor that portrayed Kao Kan, expressed interest in reprise his role of Kan in the movie, but he declined after Roy's death.

He is killed by Chen. Years later, he is studying political science when his parents and sister die in an influenza outbreak. Their ashes wind up in the possession of Che, who uses the promise of a proper burial to force Wu into servitude. In , Indiana meets Wu in Shanghai on his way to Mongolia , and steals his family's ashes from Che, securing his old friend's freedom. Indiana inspires him to study archaeology upon his return to school.

He regularly arranges Jones's transportation. Despite attending a Christian school , he respects Chinese mythology , and believes that the baby elephant that transports him in India is a reincarnation of his brother Chu. He immigrates to the United States with Jones following his adventure. Around 6, actors auditioned worldwide for the part: Quan was cast after his brother auditioned for the role.

Spielberg liked his personality, so he and Ford improvised the scene where Short Round accuses Indiana of cheating during a card game. The character cameoed in an issue of Marvel Comics ' The Further Adventures of Indiana Jones , rescuing Indiana from a pirate attack in the Caribbean , before he returns to boarding school.

He also appeared in the non-canonical crossover story in Star Wars Tales , where he and Indiana discover the remains of Han Solo in the crashed Millennium Falcon in the Pacific Northwest. He graduated from Oxford and speaks English with a pronounced accent as a result, and also knows well Indiana's reputation.

Like Indiana he was apparently forced to drink the Blood of Kali by Mola Ram, controlling him, and the young Maharaja. During the attempted sacrifice of Willie Scott, Lal is injured by Indiana when he gets caught in the wheel used to lower victims into the lava pit.

He is last seen crawling away and collapsing, but disappears after this. It is unknown if he escaped. In an early script of the film, Lal was set to have a more important role, but the script was rejected. In other early script, Lal was intended to be killed by Indy throwing him into the lava pit, but the script was scrapped.

In the novelization, Chattar Lal is thrown into the lava pit while in the film he is injured but he doesn't die, whereas in Lego Indiana Jones: He is a young boy, probably a year or two older than Short Round.

Despite considering the Thuggee an evil cult and vowing that they would never return, it is revealed that Singh is an unwilling member, having been forced to drink the Blood of Kali. During Indiana's fight against the chief Thuggee guard, Singh hinders Indiana by using a voodoo doll.

He is stopped by Short Round, who burns him with a torch, releasing him from the Black Sleep of Kali. He atones for his crimes by telling Short Round how he, Indiana, and Willie can escape from the mines. He also apparently alerts British troops about the recent events, as he is seen among them when they arrive to battle the Thuggee after Mola Ram's death. In an early script of the film, Singh was set to have a more important role, but the script was scrapped. Mola Ram Amrish Puri is the Thuggee high priest.

He has made Pankot Palace his lair and wants to use the five Sankara Stones to set up the reign of Kali. To that end, Mola Ram enslaves the children of a village that had one of the Stones the taking of it bringing his total to three. They mine for the other two and for gems to fund his cause in catacombs underneath the palace. Indiana eventually confronts Mola Ram over a nearby gorge, calling on the power of Shiva to use the Stones against the evil cleric, who is burned by them and falls into the river, where he is devoured by crocodiles.

In the novelization Ram's death is the same, but he returns to normal when he burns his hand on the stone; Indy tries to pull him to safety, but Ram falls to his death. Mola Ram is named after an 18th-century Indian painter. Puri was chosen as Spielberg and Lucas did not want to cast a European actor and apply dark make-up.

In an early script of the movie, the burning Sankara Stones actually release Mola Ram from the same "Black Sleep of the Kali Ma" he inflicts on Jones before falling to his death, hinting that he may not have been in control of his actions. It was also intended that Mola Ram, after falling from the bridge, be killed by landing on the embankment below, followed by the crocodiles tearing apart his corpse.

However, this script was scrapped and rejected. A 6-inch action figure and an unpainted metal miniature of Mola Ram was released in The Chief Guard Pat Roach was the ruthless, coldhearted commander of Mola Ram 's Thuggee guards and also helped oversee the enslaved children in the mines that were under Pankot Palace in When Indiana Jones released the children from the mines, he and the chief ended up fighting on a conveyor leading to a rock-grinding machine.

With his sash getting caught in the machine's rollers, the chief guard was inexorably pulled in and crushed to death. He is alerted to the evil of Pankot Palace apparently by Little Maharajah to deal with the remaining Thuggees, his men kill them so Indy and Willie can escape.

In an early draft of the film, Blumburtt was set to have a more important role, but the draft was rejected. David Niven was considered to play the role of Blumburtt, but died before production, so Philip Stone from The Shining , then Delbert Grady , caught Spielberg's eye and was cast instead.

Hardy is Indiana's fellow Boy Scout in the prologue, who brings Indiana to the Sheriff 's attention after his battle with outlaws for the Cross of Coronado. Garth , also known as Fedora Richard Young , is a treasure hunter who appears in the prologue. Garth is the leader of a treasure hunter gang who find the Cross of Coronado which is stolen by a teenage Jones.

Garth and his men pursue Jones by car and follow him on a train. Garth saves Jones' life when Jones falls into a lion car and then tries to reclaim the cross. Jones escapes with the cross and runs home. However Garth gets the Moab sheriff on their side and Jones is told to give the cross back. Garth however consoles Jones, admiring the young man's attempts to claim it.

He then gives Jones his fedora before walking out. In an early draft of the film, Fedora was intended to be Dr. Abner Ravenwood, but the draft was scrapped and rejected. The Sheriff has no mentioned name. The Sheriff is first mentioned when Indiana Jones instructs Herman to find the Sheriff and alert him that grave robbers are digging in a cave in Arches National Park. Herman does what he says bringing the Sheriff to the Jones residence.

Indiana hands the Sheriff the cross of Coronado and tells him that there were "five or six of them. He hands the cross to Fedora who sells it to Panama Hat. He then bids Indiana farewell with a tip of his hat before walking out. Henry Walton Jones , Sr.

Sean Connery is Indiana's estranged father, who was distant from his son due to his obsessive study of the Holy Grail and its possible location. Kidnapped by Nazis in , he is rescued by his son, and in the process of racing the Nazis to the Grail's location, they become closer. Jones has already died in He secretly works with the Nazis, and sends both Indiana and his father on the search for the Grail without their knowledge of his ties to Germany.

He shoots Henry and forces Indy to clear the traps for him. After Indy does so, Donovan and Elsa follow him into a room filled with cups, one of which is the Grail. Elsa purposely chooses a false grail—a bejeweled gold cup—for Donovan, and when he drinks from it, his body crumbles to dust in seconds. That's quite a question.

Where would you draw the line? People say [Donovan] was a Nazi, he wasn't a Nazi, he joined the Nazi Party in order to investigate its property, and he bloody nearly got that. Only because he was greedy did he [fall]. This is an advice for you [the viewer]: It applies to everything. An allegory for life. In an early script of the film, Walter's surname was set to be Walter Chandler, and he was set to die in Hatay , when the Nazi tank fall off a cliff a fate that which would later go to Ernst Vogel , but the script was changed.

Isla Blair , Glover's wife, cameoed as Mrs. Donovan in the scene where he and Indiana discuss the Holy Grail. The in-joke was conceived by one of the producers.

He hired grave robbers to dig up the Cross of Coronado , which is immediately stolen by a teenage Jones. A horse chase and pursuit on board a circus train follow. Indy escapes, returns to his home, and attempts to talk to his father, who rebuffs him. Panama Hat is seen taking back the cross and handing a stack of money to the gang.

In Jones steals the Cross again, this time on a ship, but is caught. He struggles with the villain's men and gets the cross back. Indy jumps off the ship as a giant fuel drum rolls wildly, falling directly onto a crate of TNT. The crate explodes, causing the entire ship to blow and killing Panama Hat and his crew.

In the novelization of the story, it is stated that Indiana's final showdown with Panama Hat began because he got word from a worker of the villain that his boss had an affair with his wife and he wanted revenge. Jones realized it was a set-up and was told by Panama Hat that he had been hit badly by the Great Depression and was auctioning the cross off to wealthy buyers.

He got one deal from a buyer with a provision that said he had to kill Jones. Indy would later suspect the buyer was Walter Donovan. Elsa Schneider Alison Doody is an Austrian archaeologist who desires the Grail, and like Donovan, keeps her involvement with the Nazis a secret.

She is revealed to have seduced both Joneses, Henry first and then Indiana. Later, she deliberately picks a false grail for Donovan to eliminate competition, and watches him decay before her eyes.

Afterwards, she crosses the temple's seal with the Grail, causing the temple to collapse and her to drop the Grail as well as nearly falling into a chasm. Indy catches her, but she sees the Grail on a shelf of rock and greedily reaches for it despite Indy's warnings.

She overreaches and Indy loses his grip on her, causing her to fall to her death. According to Doody, Elsa's role as a femme fatale was an attempt to distance the character from Willie Scott. In an early script of the film, Elsa was going to be the one who shot Henry Jones, Sr. IGN placed Elsa 33rd on their list of the best bad girls in film in , [58] while Empire noted Doody "achieved the unlikely feat of making a Nazi sympathiser sympathetic". Kazim Kevork Malikyan is the leader of the Brotherhood of the Cruciform Sword, an ancient organization protecting the secrets of the Holy Grail.

Kazim initially attempts to kill Indy and Elsa during a spectacular boatchase in Venice , but after recognizing that Indy does not want the Grail for selfish purposes, gives him the location of his father. Kazim later leads an attack on the Nazi convoy heading for the Grail's location, but is killed. When Kazim dies, it was intended that Elsa step away and see her hands covered in blood as a homage to The Man Who Knew Too Much , but Spielberg was unsatisfied with each take.

In the early script of the film, written by Jeffrey Boam , Kazim was set to be an agent of Hatay, named Kemal, seeking the Holy Grail and an ally of the Nazis. Also, he was set to die after drinking from the False Grail a fate that which would later go to Walter Donovan , but the script was rejected and changed. His main objective is to kill the Joneses—whom he hates because Indy killed three of his men in Castle Grunewald—on direct orders from Adolf Hitler.

Vogel discovers Jones Sr. Later, Vogel and Donovan are heading towards the location of the Grail when Indiana ambushes their convoy.
