Luther Ford is a British actor. He played a young Prince Harry on the Netflix series The Crown.


Ford attended Arts University Bournemouth. He co-wrote, co-directed and starred in, with Eleni Ordans, the short films Dream Between in 2020 whilst he was living on university campus during lockdown for the Covid-19 pandemic and unable to attend lectures. Following that he also made the short film Woods…, with Ordans starring.[1][2]

Ford played a young Prince Harry on series six of the Netflix series The Crown. He was still a film production student at the time of the open casting, and he applied for the role after a message about the audition was sent to him on the family WhatsApp.[3][4] He had six auditions before being confirmed in the role. He told The New York Times that he listened to the audiobook of Harry's autobiography Spare during production to help him get an essence of his voice.[5]

In March 2024, Ford was reported to be added to the cast of Netflix spy thriller Black Doves which also features Keira Knightley and Ben Wishaw.[6] That month, he was cast in the BBC One historical epic series King and Conqueror set in the Middle Ages around the Norman Invasion.[7]
