• Allen, 56, is back as Marion Ravenwood

HOW DID YOU FIND OUT YOU WERE COMING BACK? I was in the Berkshires in my [knitting] studio. The phone rang and it was Steven Spielberg. You could have knocked me over with a feather.

AND BEING REUNITED WITH HARRISON FORD? It was fantastic. The first day back we were leaping from the back of a truck. It was like, "Here we are again!"

YOU RUN A KNITTING SHOP. DID YOU MAKE GIFTS FOR THE CAST? I gave Harrison, Shia [LaBeouf] and Steven all scarves. I couldn't resist!
