A THOUSAND TOMORROW’s Colin Ford Calls Role ‘A Blessing’

By Movieguide® Contributor

A THOUSAND TOMORROW’s Colin Ford recently shared how God’s influence kept him in the entertainment industry and allowed him to share his faith with others. 

“There’s been a few points in a period of time in my life where I’ve questioned [if I should be acting],” Ford explained. “Ironically, before I got A THOUSAND TOMORROWS, I was in bed. I had been a little discouraged on some meetings that had been going on and was just, you know, praying to God and wondering if this is the right thing for me.”

The next day, Ford got an email offering the role of Cody. 

“That right there was kind of a message. I just feel like I have [had these] little times in my life [demonstrating] the power of prayer and I hear God’s response in one way or the other. So that’s how I know,” the actor said. “Being a man of faith, someone who obviously wants to share that with as many people as possible, and having a series like A THOUSAND TOMORROWS… I think it’s a joy for me to get to share that with the world.”

Ford shared that he threw himself into his role in the show with “extra energy that sometimes I haven’t had before on other jobs. I just felt like that was really special,” he told the Christian Post. 

That enthusiasm for his work paid off — Ford was nominated for the Grace Prize® for Most Inspiring Performance for TV at this year’s Movieguide® Awards. 

“From start to finish, working on Karen Kingsbury’s A THOUSAND TOMORROWS has been a blessing,” Ford wrote on Instagram of the role. “I was honored to bring Karen’s Cody Gunnar to life. It’s a story of transformation, love and sacrifice and I cannot wait to hear what you think!”

Movieguide® previously reported on Ford and co-star Rose Reid’s thoughts on the show:

Actors Colin Ford and Rose Reid recently starred in the Pureflix series, A THOUSAND TOMORROWS, based on Karen Kingsbury best-selling novel of the same name.

Ford and Reid play titular characters from the book Cody and Ali, and recently talked with Movieguide® about their roles.

Despite some heavier subject matter, Ford and Reid noted that A THOUSAND TOMORROWS presents the story in a family-friendly and uplifting way.

The cast said that the show reflects themes found in Kingsbury’s novel, like forgiveness, love, and faith.

“Through patience and sacrifice and constant faith, you can get through anything. I think that’s kind of the message of the story,” Ford said.

“Ali and Cody both pray for her healing and she is healed, just maybe not in the way they were expecting,” Reid added. “I think that that’s so powerful. I think that’s beautiful and something I really hope audiences take to heart.”
