First in the series interviews of 2 families with a lot of great talent. First is 17 year old Ashley Tramonte

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.

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.
