On the struggle she underwent while trying to make it big in Tinseltown:
“I realized if I really wanted to start booking jobs, there was no half-a**ing it. I had to devote everything to it and so I did. Directors liked me but didn’t think I could be the lead in a movie because they had no idea who I was. So they’d put me in smaller roles. And then Twilight happened. I was working at the Belmont Cafe in LA, got the call, and two weeks later was rehearsing. Right when I was cast, my IMDb STARmeter went through the roof- all of ours did, and we hadn’t even done anything yet! Now I have to remind myself that not everything is going to be like that.”
On reaching the end of her 'Twilight' days:
“I’m excited to move on to the next thing and take advantage of all the opportunities we’ve been given. But at the same time, it’s kind of weird- we’ve been doing this for four years.”
Director Bill Condon on Miss Greene:
“The movies always reveal something innate in someone, and with Ashley I think it's a strong sense of sweetness and openness. From the time I met her, she's seemed older than her years, with a self-possession and a poise that reminds you of actors of a different generation.”
