Q: Ashley, as a rising star talent what motivates you and inspires you to be the best at your profession in acting and do you have a top 3 favorite actors, filmmakers or directors that you want to work with in the business?
Ashley Dacek – A: Like some actors, acting has been a dream of mine since I was little. As my acting career progresses, I learn more about the business as well as network with people. For motivation, it’s always about taking risks whether you’ll get the role or not. I always tell myself after an audition, “You gave it your best shot”. I used to be a shy person, but when I took acting courses during my high school and college years, which helped me overcome it. I feel free to be myself when playing certain roles that relate to my personality and tell stories through the characters. Passion is my inspiration.
It’s really hard to choose which directors I would like to work with because they’re all legendary in their craft. Though I would like to work with the Russo brothers. I have a couple of actors I would like to work such as Natalie Portman, Orlando Bloom, Viggo Mortensen, Keira Knightley, Robert Downey Jr. and Jason Statham.
