The Daily Quarterly: What made you want to be in show business?
Ashley Park: As a child, I always knew that being an actress was something that I wanted very badly. At the time, however, it simply wasn’t in the cards for me. Once my athletic career was over, I found myself yearning for that childhood dream again. I started taking acting classes, and found that I loved it even more than I had anticipated.
TDQ: Who was your favorite actress growing up?
AP: My favorite actress growing up was definitely Audrey Hepburn. I was given the movie “My Fair Lady” at a very young age, and I memorized every song and almost every line of her dialogue in the film, accent and all. I have always been a huge fan of hers!TDQ: What was your favorite movie growing up?
AP: My favorite movie growing up was “My Fair Lady,” but I also loved every Disney movie on the market. I owned practically every Disney princess movie that was released, and I memorized all of the songs. I think I secretly hoped that I would somehow become a Disney princess one day.
