Ashley McCall Scott is an American actress. She is known for her work on television and in film, including her roles in the television series Dark Angel, Birds of Prey, and Jericho.
Looking at Ashley Scott for the first time, one has to adjust their eyes. She seems too perfect, almost like a high-end store mannequin. And with her seemingly eternal smile, she always looks approachable and playful. She's a Southern belle with an edge, thanks to her two tattoos.
Ashley Scott began her career as a young girl when she began modeling. While living in Charleston, South Carolina, she entered a Millie Lewis Convention. Though she forgot her TV commercial, she was so good on recovery, that she won her division. After Millie Lewis and her sophomore year of high school, the 15 year old went to New York City to pursue her modeling career. She traveled, trying different markets and eventually became a Model for Elite Miami. She settled in Miami, was an active catalogue model, and a Giorgio Red Spokesmodel. As a young woman, she modeled internationally, and graced the runways at fashion shows in Miami, Paris and London.
She has appeared on the cover of the prestigious Hollywood Reporter and has been tracked by photographers from such publications as WWD, US Weekly and Cosmo Girl.
Ashley decided to give acting a go and one of her first auditions was with Al Pacino.
She didn't win the role, but her audition tape for the Al Pacino film landed in the offices of DreamWorks. She was then cast in another film that led to her first significant big screen credit, a few eye catching seconds as Gigolo Jane in the feature film AI: Artificial Intelligence where she shared screen time with Jude Law's Gigolo Joe.
In 2001 she also broke into TV when she was cast as Asha Barlow in the second season of FOX's hit sci-fi show Dark Angel. It was her first real acting role. Her character was an ally to cyber journalist Logan Cale (Michael Weatherly) and part of a group formed to expose government corruption. The Dark Angel people liked her enough to try to revise the formerly bookish character to fit Ashley's personality and they also quickly upgraded her from a guest star to a cast member.
In February 2002, while still featured in her recurring role on Dark Angel, the announcement came that she was cast as Helena Kyle a.k.a the Huntress in the pilot for the possible upcoming WB series about post-Batman Gotham and a trio of female crime fighters known as the Birds of Prey (a series loosely based on the DC comic of the same name). Ashley did do most of her own stunt work for the pilot episode of Birds of Prey.
She gained a few fans as Huntress in the WB's Birds of Prey in the Fall of 2002, but the show had a short run and ended mid-season. Ashley followed her work on Birds of Prey with feature films and has been in such films as S.W.A.T., Trespassing, Walking Tall, and Into the Blue.
She was originally cast in the pilot of the NBC Matt LeBlanc sitcom Joey in 2004, but she was replaced by Andrea Anders. She had a minor role in the movie Just Friends, as a nurse. From 2006 to 2008 she played Emily Sullivan in the CBS drama Jericho, during its entire two season run.
Her latest project is the movie 12 Rounds (film), which was released in theaters on March 27, 2009.
About her dyslexia
It was really difficult and frustrating back when I was really young in school. We finally figured out what it was when I was in third grade, probably like 8-years old, which was relieving, because when you are young and you have troubles like that early, people think you are stupid. Over time I had just learned little tricks. For some reason when I write in cursive, it's easier and flows better for me to read that when I print. I'll try to get a script a week early if possible so that I can get a head start. With this you just learn ways to do things that work best for your mind. I'm trying to create awareness and it's nice to be a voice for others.
Ashley Scott quotes
“Everyone checks out my mom. My mom's hot.”
"I have my own great relationship with God. I may not be at the end of my bed praying every night, but he hears from me at least five, six, times a day. I might be hollerin' at him, but I'm still talking to him. God's got a great sense of humor."
" I loved watching The Hulk. But people asked me what my favorite comics were and I was just like "The Incredible Hulk?" He's bad ass and he scared me"
"I like pretty, but not too feminine. I don't like gaudy, I don't do lace, I don't do ruffles. I like to go rocker, sometimes, or really hippied out. I have a wide range."
"If there`s something in your life that you want to change, change it. Quit complaining. It makes your life miserable; it makes everyone else`s life miserable around you. That`s the way I live. it makes me a happy person. "
"My mom used to say, "Don`t bring your bad mood in the house. Take your bad mood coat off and put it outside the door and come inside. If you want to put it back on when you leave, that`s fine." I used to hang my coat a lot. "

When asked if she read comic books on a regular basis
No. I did my research for Birds of Prey. I wasn't into comic books. My brother wasn't into them and so it was just never around. Dungeons & Dragons is the closest I got to stuff like that.
