“Weirdly, I’m shy,” she said in a new interview. “When people first meet me, I don’t talk. I get really nervous in public situations, but once you get to know me, I’m so outgoing. But [at first] I’m very closed off. I hold in emotions. I don’t like to be vulnerable, ever."
We find this so surprising, since we're used to seeing Ashley as Hanna, one of the most vocal characters on the show. Ashley did explain that being an actress helps her overcome her fear of being vulnerable.
"When you’re acting, you get to explore those feelings and those emotions and those moments," she said. "Acting is so fun. I love memorizing lines and I love doing scenes.” It's so cool that she found an outlet to help her get her emotions out and deal with her shyness struggles. You go girl!
