She’s also the stepsister of hyper-successful writer Roberto Orci.
Courtney Ford almost gave up acting a few years ago. “If I let myself get discouraged about anything, I would have stopped a long time ago. I almost did, actually…I almost stopped right before ‘Dexter.’ I went in and did it and I didn’t think I was going to get it at all, but I ended up getting the role…that changed the trajectory of my career and it changed my plans,” (colldier.com).
Her other roles include parts on “How I Met Your Mother,” “Cold Case” and “Ugly Betty.”
As for her nude scenes, Courtney Ford said, “Both on ‘Dexter’ and ‘True Blood’, people are getting killed and there’s blood everywhere, but then if you think, ‘Oh no, I see boobies! How dare you?’ something is wrong there. How can you be okay with murder but not be okay with the natural state of the human body?”
She said of future roles she’d like to have: “I would love to be on a show where I’m allowed to play a character that you’re not suspicious of, from the get-go, and who’s someone that you can just relax with, take in and like, right off the bat.”
She is married to actor Brandon Routh. They met at Hollywood’s Lucky Strike, a bowling alley where he worked part time. They were married in 2007 at El Capitan Ranch in Santa Barbara.
