Ashlyn Ford is a talented teen actress, singer and musician who loves to share her gifts and talents with others. She began singing at age five and was first bitten by the acting bug at the young age of seven when she was cast in her first theater production, Les Miserables’, as Little Cosette. From that experience came a deep passion and interest in acting that has culminated in 25 stage productions to date, including two professional productions and multiple lead roles. One of her most recent stage roles was a literal dream come true when she was cast in the title role of Annie. Her performance in Annie, won her the 2018 Robidoux Resident Theater Ruby Award of 'Best Performance by a Youth'.
She has worked on three feature films while also keeping up with a busy schedule of summer concert appearances. Her first feature film, Christmas at the Chateau was released in November, 2019. Her second movie, Accidental Family is expected to release in late 2022.
