    • Ashley: Whenever I have time off, there is a University called Athabaska University, which you can do courses on line, which are transferable to Universities if I ever physically want to go to a University. So I can get courses along the way and continue to act. At least I have something to fall back on, if I change my mind.

    • Ashley: I just like coming to work and not feeling like I'm at work. It's a passion of mine. It's nice to get to do a job you love and go to work with your best friends everyday. It's just like a big family and there are no egos. No one is pulling a big diva act. You can tell in the product of the show that we just all get along so well! I've been so lucky. And especially, on joining Life with Derek three years ago, I couldn't have asked for a more amazing production team. I love it there. I love every person, and I've never had a bad day on the set. Mike and I are brother and sister pretty much and Jordan plays my little sister. It's just like my real family.

    • Ashley: My dog actually thinks he's a cat. They just hang out and get along. I actually can't get him to eat dog food. He will only eat cat food, so it's very strange.

    • Ashley: It's seems to be that I only get recognized when I've just gotten out of bed or just had a shower, and I have no makeup on and my hair is a mess. Everyone's like, 'Oh, can I get a picture with you?", and I'm like, 'Sure,' then these pictures make their way on to the Internet. And then there'll be nights where I just get all dressed up, and someone will come up to me and say, 'Oh my gosh, you look just like this girl on TV,' then walk away. So I'm like, 'Take my picture anyway, please!'. It's funny.

    • Ashley: There's a few kids on the Myspace that have said to me, "You're my role model." That's a huge responsibility! But it's really special, and really sweet that they would look up to me like that. I don't think I deserve it, but it's nice.

    • Ashley: There's no going too far with being the villain. Your job is to make people hate you.

    I have the up most respect for this actress. Not only because her acting was portrayed brilliantly on Life with Derek, but just because she's just as good at everything else, not just acting. For some reason, I have more respect for Canadian actors rather than American ones, and you can only guess why...



    Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton. What do you think of when you hear these names? Pretty much girls that have partied most of their life away, and can't get an acting job to save their life nowadays. Ashley Leggat was never a party animal, she is an overachiever at everything she does.



    Lets see... where do I start, she's a great actress, she has taken dancing lessons since she was young which you also get to see on Life with Derek, oh yeah, and she sings too. The three actresses mentioned above, I have no respect for them nor am I attracted to them in any way.



    I am very attracted to Ashley Leggat and I hope she gets more gigs, she is definitely an under appreciated actress, and she's just a great role model.moreless

    Ashley is a really talented Canadian actress that knows how to dance and act. She really knows how to act. She really acts good on Life With Derek and I like that show it is really funny and she is close friends with Michael Seater that plays Derek Venturi. She plays Casey on the show and she does it really good. She started to dance at the age 2 in a half and that is really young and the reason was that she did is because she is talented. I really want to meet and go behind the scenes of the show Life with Derek.moreless
