      BIOGRAPHY

      Ashlyn Ford is a talented teen actress and musician who loves to share her God given 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 18 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'.

      Most recently, she completed work on two feature films while also keeping up with a busy schedule of summer concert appearances.   Her first feature film, Christmas at the Chateau, debuted on cable network, SHOWTIME, on November 2nd, 2019.
