The Truth About Harrison Ford's Brother

Harrison Ford has starred in some of the most iconic movies of all time. From "Star Wars" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark" to "American Graffiti" and "Working Girl," Harrison has earned an Oscar nomination, four Golden Globe nods, and the AFI Life Achievement Award and Cecil B. DeMille Award. And while some dedicated fans may know a bit about Harrison's childhood in Chicago or that he is a licensed pilot, few know about his younger brother, Terence Ford. 

Born in 1945, Terence has worked as an actor and assistant director on well-known films like "Blade Runner," "Outbreak," and "Macon County Line." According to his IMDb, however, it seems that Terence is no longer active in the industry, as his last credit was in 1997, where he played Lawyer #1 in the David Fincher film, "The Game." What else is there to know about this celebrity sibling? Let's find out. 

Harrison Ford's brother also worked on Blade Runner

Terence Ford's IMDb shows that he worked as a second assistant director on "Blade Runner," which starred his brother Harrison Ford, and the 1995 film "Outbreak." He has also held jobs in the camera and electrical department, and costume and wardrobe departments. As an actor, Terence worked on projects like "Knots Landing," "Falcon Crest," "Dynasty," and "Beverly Hills, 90210," among others. 

Terence's website reveals that over the course of his career, he took classes at The Second City and attended London Film School. It was in London that he "discovered his passion for media production and documentary photography." Terence went on to spend two decades working in commercial photography and in the film industry as a member of the Directors Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild. After that, he moved to St. Helena in the Napa Valley, where he "focused on commercial photography for many of the prominent wineries there, including Robert Mondavi Winery, Shafer Vineyards, Opus One and Joseph Phelps Vineyards" (per his website). 

Terence Ford works as a professional photographer

Terence Ford's photography website states that he showcased his work to post-9/11 veterans at The Pathway Home in 2009. In 2012, he was asked to present his program, fStop Warrior Project, at the Wounded Warrior Battalion West. Terence went on to create the fStop Foundation, "which presents digital photography instruction to veterans and first responders in a restorative setting at the Santa Barbara City College, at the Wake Campus." In January 2021, he was involved in the production of the Discovery Channel's "Cal Fire" series, which chronicled the agency's attempt to contain wildfires in 2020. 

Interestingly enough, according to The Napa Valley Register, Terence was 25 when he started using his first camera. The outlet shared that some of his photography clients today include Napa Valley wineries, resorts and spas, and magazines like Architectural Digest and Wine Spectator. During his interview with the outlet, Terence explained that he "leaves nothing to chance" when it comes to his photographs. He told the outlet, "If you want a beautiful landscape you get up at 5 o'clock in the morning, somewhere around dark, and set yourself up so when the most beautiful light of the day occurs at sunrise, you are there."
