Taylor Hackford (born December 31, 1944 in Santa Barbara, California) is an American film director married to Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren since 1997.

Hackford served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Bolivia in the 1960s.

Hackford graduated from USC's School of Cinema-Television in 2000. In a recent interview, he confirmed that he never attended film school, "When I finish a film, I put it away and I never look at it again. Occasionally I do now because of the DVDs and the commentary tracks. I usually put it aside and go onto the next. I never went to film school. I worked for the KCET public television station in L.A. I worked in concerts. I have done a lot of music. I feel very comfortable shooting music, and I think you can see that."[1]

On April 11, 2006, Hackford announced that he would be making his directorial debut on Broadway by bringing the 1992 Steve Martin film Leap of Faith to the stage as a Broadway musical. The score was written by Alan Menkin with lyrics by Glenn Slater, and is aiming for a 2007-2008 season debut. Hackford chose "Leap of Faith" even though he had previously been offered the opportunity to bring his film Ray to the stage. "What got me here was Alan Menken's score and how it so beautifully fit the book," Hackford said.[2]
