Wilhelmenia Ford knew that she wanted to become an actress at the young age of nine after playing a lead role in her fourth grade play, but it was not until she was in her 60's after becoming a cancer survivor, that she took a deep look into her heart and decided to pursue that lifelong dream of becoming a successful professional actor. Now at the age of 70, the beautiful and talented Wilhelmenia is defying the odds and proving that age need not be a barrier to success in the industry. She is now seeing a steady flow of projects coming her way.

The film is written and directed by Preston Walden, and executive producer Karina Michel. Other recent film credits include "Speed Dating", "No Harm Done", "The Bench", and "We Three Witches". Wilhelmenia has also been finding success booking roles on television series, commercials, and print work. Wilhelmenia Ford was born in Los Angeles to a 42 year old mother and a 67 year old father.

Wilhelmenia grew up and went on to obtain her Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) postgraduate degree from Arizona State University.
