Ashley is a member of MENSA.
Ashley took Polish as a language in high school and graduated with honors.
An animal lover, Ashley rides, trains and carts horses and enjoys sharing her pets with others through pet therapy programs that focus on the disadvantage and special needs children as well as the elderly.
I've always loved horses. When I was younger, I competed in horse shows and did quite well.
My ideal role would be anything that allows me to play anyone the public is familiar with and to be able to show them that, but in a new light.
As an actor, I think it's always important to separate yourself from your characters because, when you include yourself in a character, you're taking a liberty that you don't really have unless you're life is that incredibly close to the character.
I'm sort of a reverse Method actor. In my personal life, I become my characters. After 'One Tree Hill', I started dressing in Converse and ripped jeans and hoodies. On 'Awkward', it manifests in how I speak.
Yeah, the whole 'One Tree Hill' experience made me realize I wanna write, and produce, and direct as well as act. I'm interested in all facets of the industry.
I have everything in my house organized to an unnecessary T, and I love it! The only downside: I have no excuses for losing my to-do lists.
I love skin care and actually wanted to be an esthetician for many years.
I'm always looking to do different roles and play around a little bit. That's always the fun part of my job.
When I believe in something, I support it fully. On that note, I totally don't support Velcro shoes.
Frankly, the reason I joined MENSA is because I was dating a guy at the time who spoke five languages and could solve a Rubik's Cube literally with his eyes closed because it's just an algorithm.
I think that you never fall out of love with somebody, you just let go and move on.
I'm not saying standardized tests are the worst ever, but there's an in-between and I don't think we're there yet. That's what I mean when I say I have an issue with it. There's no way a kid can learn in a class with 40 to 45 people. I had the power to get out of that system and pursue things that I wanted to do and I did that.
I'm horrible at quoting movies! Even my very favorites are not easily recalled or programmed to memory. When people start movie quoting around me, I'm that person who just smiles and then looks up the reference later.
