Accomplished senior actor Morgan Freeman began his military career, following a childhood dream of becoming a fighter pilot. He enlisted in 1955 and joined the US Air force, receiving the position of radar technician. He even turned down a scholarship for drama, trying to follow his ideals.

As soon as he sat in a plane for the first time, reality hit him and he was quick to change his mind. He followed his instinct and left his position in 1959 – it took him 20 years of stage acting to finally reach the film industry.
