Mini Biography
Trent Manley Ford was born in Akron, Ohio to a US Navy test pilot father and a British Airways head stewardess mother from Birmingham, West Midlands. He moved to the United Kingdom at the age of one with his parents, and grew up in Cradley and Malvern with his brother and two sisters. He studied Economics and English Literature at Clare College, Cambridge University. Ford is an accomplished actor known for Gosford Park (2001), How to Deal (2003) and Burning Blue (2013).

Trent is most recognized for his onscreen work, often appearing as the slick heartthrob in film and television. Throughout his career, he has demonstrated a high level of dramatic versatility, while maintaining a successful modeling career. Ford has been photographed by some of the most prestigious names in fashion photography, including Mario Testino, Bruce Weber and Peter Lindbergh. Trent has appeared multiple times in V Magazine and Italian Vogue, and campaigns for Abercrombie & Fitch, Gap and Valentino among others. He was the leading man in the global advertising campaign for Calvin Klein perfume 'Eternity Moment' opposite Scarlett Johansson.

In May 2020, after falling gravely ill, Trent received a life-saving liver transplant from UCLA. Fully recovered and forever changed for the better, deepened and stiller, as an actor- being told one will face their own mortality with no chance of surviving, and then miraculously receiving grace will do that to a person. This is all thanks in largest part to the love of his life, Natalie Cohen. Trent and Natalie continue to work with UCLA, helping patients and caregivers in similar situations, both pre- and post-transplant. They are advocates for organ donation, and proud members of the transplant community. They live in perpetual happiness and gratitude with their two cats.
