BSCkids: Ashley Jordan Preston
What can you tell us about your new television show?
I am so excited to be a part of a new pilot show. I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement so I can’t say to much right now but….I should be able to share details by the end of this month. What I can tell you….it’s a comedy and I am the main character’s best friend. They are building the set right now and the filming starts in a few weeks.
Are there any similarities between you and your character on the show?
Yes, there are similarities such as we both have a passion for style and both like to goof around!
You have done several different jobs since you started acting at age 4, which was the most fun, and do you have any funny stories from it?
The most fun was actually doing a scary scene when someone tried to kill me. I kept sticking my tongue out.
Is it hard to go to school and be an actress?
At times it is hard because I want to go to acting and dancing classes. But I love school, being with my friends and I love sports!
Why did you decide you wanted to start acting?
It’s actually a funny story. When I was a baby my mom would sing to me to do anything…I mean anything! So now I can’t stop singing and acting. When I do my homework my mom is constantly telling me to stop singing but it’s her fault…hehehehe!
Do you want to transition into film acting in the future?
Absolutely! I can’t wait and I am ready now!
I heard you love to cook, what is your favorite meal to create?
I love making Manhattan Clam Chowder because of all the details….I love shopping for the special items then I have to chop everything in tiny pieces. I like making this meal with my friends! It is soooo yummy … oh yes and we make one pot with clams and one without.
If you couldn’t be an actor, what career do you think you would choose?
I just can’t imagine doing anything else. I really do love it and believe it’s my gift.
If you could pick any celebrity to work with, who would it be?
I would pick Hillary Duff as my celebrity to work with!
Are there any movies coming out soon that you are looking forward to seeing?
I can’t wait to see Hunger Games and This Means War. Oh yes! and Journey 2.
