Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Faith Ford started her career when she became a finalist in Teen Magazine's model search. From there, she landed a regular role on the NBC daytime drama "Another World" (1984-85) before segueing to primetime with guest appearances on "Webster" and "Hardcastle and McCormick." The attractive blonde performer made her TV series debut in the little-seen "Popcorn Kid" (CBS, 1987) but scored the following year when she was cast as Corky Sherwood, the cloying, wholesome, flighty Miss America-cum-newscaster on CBS' long-running "Murphy Brown" (1988-98). Ford branched out into the occasional TV-movie, most effectively in a dramatic turn as a mother convinced that her ex-husband has molested her daughter who goes into hiding in "Her Desperate Choice" (Lifetime, 1996).
