This is my first in the series of interviews with 2 families that have a lot of great talent. My first interview is with 17 year old Ashley Tramonte of Marshfield,Mass. She is currently working on Cheerleaders Vs. Redneck Zombies. Her most recent credits are GrownUps2 with Adam Sandler , The Way Way Back movie with Steve Carell, The Rude the Mad and the Funny and Baskmask. Clearly a young actress with a great start to her acting career. Via email from my Maine home,I asked Ashley a series of questions about her dreams of being an actress.
1. When did you get the acting bug and what was your very first role in Movies?
2. You currently attend Marshfield High School,are you currently enrolled in any theater productions at school?
I am not enrolled in any of the theater courses but I do go to the shows and support the schools actors.
My family is what inspires me when I see how happy they get for me I can’t help but smile. As every girl you ask that question I am sure she will answer it with…. CHANNING TATUM!
I really like comedies and dramas but my all time favorite would be romance. I have had roles in a few genres but I would like to say my favorite genre to work in is drama.
I never worked with him before but he has a General Store here in my town and I go there here and there and on set I had time to talk to him about Marshfield and how much he enjoys it here. Actually funny tidbit, we were driving (me and my mom) and I saw a guy that looked familiar but I just couldn’t figure out who it was then when the light turned green we drove past him and I was like “steve…?” then he drove past us further up and he was staring into the car smiling at me. It was a couple days after working on the way way back.
I played a rave party teen.
I would like to be out in California acting and having a degree in cosmetology that is what I am going to college for.
From the beginning my mom was very supportive she took me on auditions and stood by me every step of the way.
I was a contest judge and I met the director David Garfield at an event here in Marshfield and he gave me the role.
Personally, I like both but Television is more fun because you go to school and everybody says that they saw you on TV. Sexting in Suburbia came out Jan. 14 2012 and people are still watching it and telling me they saw me. Its a adrenaline rush.
I like to play any character I like to explore different personalities.
Spending time with my family, because as Italians we are very family oriented and are always together.
