Ashley's biggest break came when she scored the role of perky lady-vamp Alice Cullen in "The Twilight Saga," but she'd had lots of little breaks on TV. Ashley's first accredited role was as Ann Rappaport on "Crossing Jordan" (2006). It wasn't long before she landed in the sexy stilettos of Renata on MyNetworkTV's hot n' heavy (but short-lived) drama, "Desire" (2006) -- and then booked guest-starring appearance as Natalie Faber on CBS's "Shark" (2008). Since her theatrical debut as Alice Cullen, Ashley returned to the small screen in ABC's "Pan Am" (2011) before that series was permanently grounded.
