Blessed with extremely harmonious vocals and talent with guitars and other musical instruments, Malcolm Ford makes one great singer, songwriter, guitarist and an artist in general. However, this is not the only thing Malcolm is famous for. As a matter of fact, Malcolm Ford is famous for the name of the boards.
See, people are famous for two reasons, either they do something that makes them famous, or they relate or link to someone who is famous. In the case of Malcolm, both things apply. As said, he is a very talented artist who produces music, and on the other hand, his father and mother are very famous as well.
Now, you might be wondering who his parents just might be. Well, you probably know them, especially his father, who has played major roles in movies like Star Wars and Indiana Jones. His mother, on the other hand, is someone who was involved in the iconic E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial movie that came out in 1962.
His life includes both happiness and sorrow, and there are a lot of things that people do not know about him. Let’s talk about Malcolm Ford in detail and learn about his personal life, professional life, and his current status.
Malcolm Ford: Who Is He?
As discussed above, Malcolm Ford is an artist who plays guitar and sings very beautifully as well. But you already know that by now. The other thing that makes him famous and noteworthy is the fact that his parents are excessively famous, and the use of the word excessive is not an exaggeration here.
Malcolm Ford is the son of the legendary Hollywood actor Harrison Ford, the actor who portrayed the character of Han Solo in Star Wars film series. He, as discussed earlier, also appeared in the famous movie Indiana Jones as the lead character himself. Told you that he is very famous.
On the other hand, his mother boards the same fame. She is Melissa Mathison, a reputed and renowned American Television Screenwriter who has worked in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and The Black Stallion. Both movies are iconic and hold a distinct place in Hollywood history.
Malcolm, however, despite having parents with Hollywood background did not exclusively act, and there are probably reasons for that. But first, let’s talk about his parents more.
Ford Parents: Harrison and Melissa
As it so happens, Malcolm’s mother is not Harrison’s first wife as he was previously married to another woman. Harrison Form was previously married to Mary Marquardt, a chef by profession. The couple married back on June 18, 1964. The couple welcomed two children, sons.
They decided to name them Ben and Willard. But despite welcoming two children, the couple could not maintain a proper married life and ended up divorcing. Then Harrison and Melissa met for the first time in the 1980s. The couple married after dating for something in 1983.
Harrison Ford is also famous as an actor who keeps his personal life very private. Therefore, any other detail regarding his wedding is unrevealed at the moment. In a couple of years after marrying each other, the couple welcomed their first child together, a boy and that boy are Malcolm Ford. The couple also welcomed a daughter in 1990.
Again, despite having two children together, the family could not keep the couple married. Things started to grow sour between them, and eventually, Harrison and Melissa decided to split and file for divorce. The separation happened in August 2001. They processed for divorce but that only finalized on January 6, 2004.
Harrison met another woman shortly after divorce with Melissa and started dating. Her name is Calista Flockhart, an actress who is most famous for appearing as a lead character in Brothers and Sisters from 2006 to 2011. Harrison proposed Calista on Valentine’s Day of 2009.
Harrison and Calista later married on June 15, 2010, at Santa Fe, New Mexico. The couple has an adopted son together. The end of his parents’ marriage left a mark on Malcolm and he because disturbed.
Malcolm was just a young boy when his parent’s divorces and we all know that when parents do not make children a priority when divorcing or separating in general, it affects negatively. For Malcolm, he could not digest the fact that his parents were divorced. Any child would want their parents to stay together forever, and Malcolm wanted that as well.
After his parents Harrison and Melissa divorced, Malcolm reportedly indulged in drug use and heavily invested himself into it. After much consultation and consolation, he admitted to a rehab center and tried to break the habit of drug use. With immense support from his family and friends, Malcolm was able to overcome the habit.
He returned from the rehab center as a new man who was enthusiastic about something now. But instead of following his father’s footstep, Malcolm started with music. As his career as a musician escalated, he started getting fame, but another tragedy struck him — the death of his mother.
On November 4, 2015, Malcolm’s mother Melissa died after she lost the battle with neuroendocrine cancer. The death of his mother took another severe emotional hit on him. However, Malcolm did not shelter to drug use anymore and dealt with his mother’s death as a mature man.
Malcolm Ford Personal Life
Ford has a personal life that is much similar to that of his father. No, he is not married for multiple times, and we are not talking in that dimension as well. Malcolm, like his father, tends to keep his personal life very private as well, which has led to a lot of confusion we rather say speculation of sorts.
He does have an affair history which dates back to 2008. During 2008, Malcolm was dating a Canadian model called Jessica Stam. The relationship became official news after the couple was seen together occasionally and frequently than usual. However, it did not go anywhere from there.
Since then, there are no talks about his relationship whatsoever. What happened to his relationship with model Jessica also remains a mystery, and both of them have stayed mum on this topic.
Malcolm Ford Career
Malcolm always had an interest in music and enjoyed playing the guitar. He used to perform occasionally, and after battling and winning over drug abuse, Malcolm decided to join a band and pursue a career as a musician fulltime. In 2008, he joined a band called The Dough Rollers, a band he formed with his friend Jack Byrne. He came to know Jack while studying at the same college.
Later on their journey, Julia Tepper joined the group and convinced the band to try different genres. Following that approach, the band released a self-titled album with a mixture of different genres. Two years later, the band released another album called Someday Baby. However, later Julia left the band and Malcolm got two new members to the band.
