Education

She finally moved to Los Angeles at age seventeen and persevered for almost three years, accepting bit roles in films and TV serials.

Early life

Ashley was daredevil and tomboyish by nature right from her childhood and tried to outdo her brother in physically challenging activities like taekwondo. She recalls being disallowed from sparring with girls in her taekwondo class as she landed heavy blows on them. Owing to her overly outgoing and unruly disposition, she discovered that she preferred going out with girls many years senior to her. Her intermingling with elder girls greatly hurt her self-confidence and her mother got her admitted in modeling classes to enhance her flagging self-esteem. Owing to her short height, she was discouraged from pursuing a career in modeling and was recommended to concentrate on doing advertisements. She acted in commercials for ‘Mark Cosmetics’ and Apple Inc’s’ iPod’.
