(On her role as Chrissy in Now and Then)
Ashleigh: We are very very opposite, but in a lot of ways we are very much the same. I like to think I am practical and level headed and that's something I share with Chrissy. She's the glue that holds the group together. Even though Chrissy doesn't take a really strong leadership role, their's is a quite bond and everybody kind of knows that if it wasn't for her they wouldn't be together.
