2009 Grand Marshall
Faith Ford

Her classic beauty, combined with wit and comedic talent, earned Ford five Emmy nominations and two consecutive Golden Globe Award nominations for her ten-year portrayal of reporter ‘Corky Sherwood’ on the CBS series “Murphy Brown.” Most recently, Ford co-starred opposite Fred Goss and Jerry O’Connell in the ABC comedy series, “Carpoolers,” created by Bruce McCulloch and directed by the Russo brothers. Prior to that she starred in the ABC hit comedy series “Hope & Faith” with Kelly Ripa for three seasons and co-starred opposite Vin Diesel in Touchstone Pictures’ “The Pacifier.” Most recently she completed filming on the Hallmark movie, “A Kiss at Midnight.”

In addition to her acting career, Ford made her writing debut in 2004 with an exciting cookbook, Cooking With Faith, co-written with Melissa Clark. This multi-generational Southern cookbook draws on Ford’s childhood in Louisiana where she learned how to cook down-home food at the knees of her Grandmother and Mother. Along with the traditional family recipes, the cookbook includes updated healthier versions sprinkled with familial anecdotes of good ole’ Southern hospitality and charm.

Ford was raised in the quiet community of Pineville, Louisiana. In high school, Faith acted in school plays, and in her senior year she was a finalist in Teen Magazine’s annual model search. Faith moved to New York City when she was 17 where she worked in commercials, took acting classes, and did some modeling. At 18, Ford landed a role on the soap “Another World.” After a year on the show, she decided to move to Los Angeles to further pursue her career as an actress.
