Ashley Greene is an American actress and model, best known for her portrayal of Alice Cullen in the ‘The Twilight Saga’ series of films. She has also earned widespread fame and recognition for her striking performances in the movies, ‘Skateland’, ‘Summer Blood’, ‘The Apparition’, ‘A Warrior’s Heart’, ‘Wish I Was Here’, and ‘In Dubious Battle’. Ashley, right from an early stage in her life, displayed traits of tomboyishness and daredevilry, competing with Joe, her elder brother, in taekwondo, and even going on to win numerous awards. Her boisterous and hardihood temperament saw her socializing with girls much older to her that eventually dented her sense of worth and self-confidence. Her mother encouraged her to attend modeling classes in order to boost up her self-esteem but her short stature put paid to her dream of becoming a model. For a while, she focused on doing commercials and advertisements but later on contemplated on becoming a public prosecutor. However, after attending a few acting classes, she made up her mind, once and for all, to become an actress, and relocated to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. After struggling for nearly three years, performing minor roles in low-profile TV programs and films, she landed the part of ‘Alice Cullen’ following an extended auditioning process and never looked back after that.
