Ashley Laurence's website tells us that this stunning actress "grew up in the cultural excitement of Southern California. Encouraged to explore every artistic avenue available to her, she soon found her love for acting was equaled by her passion for painting. Ashley’s acting career was kicked into high gear at a very young age, when she was cast as the strong-willed heroine of Clive Barker’s quintessential horror classic: Hellraiser. The award winning actress subsequently appeared in a wide variety of roles for Film and TV, including the highly acclaimed "Red", "Lightning Bug, "E.R.", and national advertising campaigns for Geico, Coors Lite, AT&T."
There are several videos of her work available on her website. I particularly love the many moods that flash by on her commercial reel. It might even make you envy the Geico Gecko.
Ashley brings exactly the skills and sensibilities this production of The Sonnets will require. We are very fortunate indeed to have made contact with this established leading actress, and we hope our Blog family will agree.
