The series jumps 18 years later to 1957 for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, with a 58-year-old Indy. Karen Allen played Marion Ravenwood in The Search for the Lost Ark. He later reprised the role for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The character was named Marion after the grandmother of Raiders writer Lawrence Kasdan, while her last name was taken from Ravenwood Lane in California.
Ravenwood is a tough and self-sufficient woman, who is not intimidated by men and is able to take care of herself when the situation demands it, a character similar to that of Princess Leia in Star Wars. Spielberg originally intended the role for his girlfriend Amy Irving, but they broke up during production. Sean Young auditioned for the role, Barbara Hershey was considered, while Debra Winger turned it down. Steven Spielberg chose Karen Allen, thanks to her performance in National Lamspoon's Animal House.
Allen did screen tests with Tim Matheson and John Shea, before Harrison Ford was cast as Indiana. On a frantic adventure through the rainforest and Akator, Marion and Indiana rekindled their romance very quickly despite everything that had happened before, and then eventually became husband and wife. As prisoners, Indiana and Mutt meet Professor Oxley and Mutt's mother, Marion (Karen Allen). He reused the Indiana theme (The March of the Assailants) and also that of Marion from In Search of the Lost Ark, and also composed five new motifs for Mutt, Spalko and the Skull.
Indiana then escaped her restraints with Mutt's hidden knife and freed Mutt, who in turn unleashed Marion. However, this led to an argument that became so intense that the guard moved to gag Marion, positioning him to be knocked out by Indiana and Mutt. As a child, Marion was never particularly interested in her father's work until 1925, when a handsome Indiana Jones was asked to help her former mentor locate the Ark of the Covenant. When they were driven as prisoners in a truck through the rainforest, Marion explained to Mutt that Indiana was her real father.
After a relationship in the mid-1920s, Marion and Indiana Jones didn't see each other again until 1936, when the couple joined forces to locate the Ark of the Covenant, which was Abner Ravenwood's obsession.
