Terence Ford is an American actor turned photographer. Born in Chicago, Illinois of one quarter Irish, one quarter German and half Russian-Jewish descent, he became interested in photography at an early age. However, like his father, grandfather and older brother, he became an actor. Unlike his brother Harrison, he never became a household name. He later said "I didn't enjoy acting, it was just 'the family hardware store' if you will, so there weren't any roles I enjoyed.
