With five major studio films slated for release in the next two years, Ashley Greene – who takes the lead female role in A Warrior’s Heart as Kellan Lutz’s love interest, Brookly Milligan – has ascended the ranks of Hollywood’s most sought-after young film actresses.
Greene is best known for her role as Alice Cullen in Summit Entertainment’s wildly popular Twilight film franchise. Based on the #1 New York Times bestselling series by Stephanie Meyer, the Twilight series is a collection of vampire novels that evolved into a global phenomenon after the release of the first movie in 2008. Its sequel, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, released in 2009, was the year’s third-highest grossing box office film. And the phenomenon continues in Nov. 18 with the fourth release in the series, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part I). Part II is scheduled for release in 2012.
Also on the horizon: Greene will star in Butter, a Weinstein ensemble comedy co-starring Jennifer Garner and Olivia Wilde; the Lionsgate film L.O.L., with Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore; and The Apparition, a Warner Brothers/Dark Castle thriller.
Greene is the global ambassador for Avon’s “mark line.” Her first ad campaign debuted in September 2010. She is the spokesperson for mark’s “m.powerment” campaign to stop dating abuse and partner violence affecting young women. In February 2010, Greene was the celebrity spokesperson for SOBE Lifewater’s two new zero-calorie flavors. The advertising campaign premiered in the 2010 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition.
Greene was the recipient of the 2009 Teen Choice “Fresh Face Female” Award and the 2010 and 2011 Teen Choice “Scene Stealer” Award. She is the national spokesperson for DonateMyDress.org, a charity organization that connects less fortunate teens with gently-used prom dresses.
A Jacksonville, Fla., native, Greene currently resides in Los Angeles.
