Ashley Marie's transition into acting came both naturally and as a necessity. "Commercial models are the actors of the modeling world," she explains. She has decided to pursue acting to add more depth in front of the camera and have the versatility that makes her personal brand more marketable in a competitive market.
Ashley Marie has done short films, TV, film, theater, commercials, and everything in between. Her first taste of a major production came as she played background on a whim for the first episode of the FOX TV hit show "Empire." Fast forward to today and Ashley Marie will be featured in the upcoming film, set for release in 2018, "The Conformist" playing an outspoken law student named Effie. She is currently preparing for her breakthrough role and is looking forward to seeing what 2017 has to offer in the acting realm.
Her biggest inspiration in life is to inspire legions of young women and girls to become the best version of themselves possible.Confidence and self-esteem are topics she is greatly passionate about, addressing audiences of over 400+ as a keynote speaker. This led to her hosting Toledo Fashion Week 2016. In Fall of 2017, Ashley Marie returns to her alma mater to grow in her hosting abilities under the instruction of 22-time Emmy Award-winning host and reporter, Mike Castellucci. She looks forward to soon working as a red carpet correspondent at The Grammy's or any major awards show.
