Interview with Ashley Jones of "A
Sister's Revenge" on Lifetime 4/23/13
The movie premieres Saturday, April 27 and will
also air on Sunday, April 28.
Here is the audio of my interview with Ashley. She was so
sweet on the phone! I could have talked to her for an hour,
easily. I will be transcribing this very soon as well.

transcribed the interview for me. I plan to go through again
and see if I can figure out the parts she couldn't hear, but
here it is for now.
Ashley seems like a very nice person. She apologized for
calling me a little late after being on another call. I told
her I was very glad to speak to her, because I had followed
her career since seeing her years ago as Megan on "The Young
& The Restless"!
She replied, "Oh, my goodness! You're kidding, wow!"
I told her I had started watching Y&R back in college in
She said, "You've seen me go through several different
I explained that I also starting watching Bold & The
Beautiful in the 90's (where she has played Bridget for
years), so I saw her on there as well as on "True Blood".
She thanked me and said she was glad that I have
witnessed her range.
I guess you usually play the good girl, but "Daphne" was
Daphne was a little different, yes.
1. So you play the wife in this movie of the guy who used
to be a ladies' man?
2. You're playing, basically, a good person, then?
My character in the Lifetime movie that airs Saturday
night is a little bit more like a Megan/Bridget mix, but
Daphne was definitely a variation of what I usually play.
3. Brooke Burns does something to you, and from the
promo it looks like you end up in the hospital.
"What's fun about this movie is it is kind of a typical
mature Lifetime movie of the week thriller that we've seen a
million times, so when you tune into these things, kind of
when you tune into a soap or 'True Blood,' the audience is
ready to go for a specific ride. They know that things are
going to happen. They know there's a bad guy, and there's a
good guy, and there's something -- The beauty about this
movie is there are quite a few twists and turns. What I love
is the way the writer actually, our bad girl Suzanne, and I
love the writer the way that they ditch ? Brooke Lynn's
character, because they give her a real -- Sometimes some
people are bad, 'Oh, he's the greedy money guy that's gonna
be the killer.' And they really give her a great back story,
and we've all been in situations where we've all wanted to
take revenge on someone, or avenge someone's ??, and we are
normal people, and we come up with a different way to handle
it other than removing them from the ??. So you get kind of
more of a variation, 360 degree of a person, instead of just
the one side of the character. And my character, I'm proud
of it, they wrote her smarter than the usual, you know,
housewife who just had a baby and is oblivious to everything
that's going on. And she's a smart cookie, the kind of, you
know, she doesn't want to ?? her husband, she's hormonal,
she just had a baby, she's not terribly secure with her
body, and different things like that, but she also isn't
going to let everything in the world slide.
4. You're executive producer of the movie. How did that
"I have been very blessed to work with Pierre David, that
is one of the head producers and owners of a company called
Imagination Worldwide, and they have a relationship with
Lifetime and have worked with them for a long time and have
had a lot of success with some of their original movies. I
worked with Pierre for a while, and he noticed my
inclination to want to know more and be more involved than
just being an actor on a film. He let me come in as much as
I wanted, and I learned a lot from him. And then he asked me
if I wanted to executive produce with him, and it's a
relationship that I treasure, which is almost like a
brilliant master class or a master's degree and getting the
bird's eye view of producing. So I've been able to shadow
him and learn from him and in time he's been able to bring
me on to other projects and it's been a really great
relationship. And I love the process of starting way before
the actors get on the set, the pre-production, going over
the different scripts, going over the actors' list. Who can
we bring on? Who does Lifetime like? Do you think they can
do this? This is a different role for them. And there are so
many different aspects that go into acting these days. It's
crazy from the way it was 18 years ago. Social media has
really changed the way that networks look at actors, and
it's been such a learning curve and experience for me to be
a part of that."
"In this particular movie, I did not have a say in the
editing at all. And, from what I hear and from what I've
witnessed so far, they've done a really great job editing. I
got the trailer. It was exciting, and I'm eager to see what
people think Saturday night. Everything was done in
post-production, and I'm really proud of that."
5. Did you have fun playing the action scenes?
"Of course. Yes. I love doing that, but these are not
hanging from a building or jumping across from one roof to
the next. Those I would be terrified of. These are more --
you know, you still get hurt, you get bruises, you get your
knees, little cuts here and there, but it's all very
controlled, and you have pads on the floor, and there are so
many people around you to help you. So it's a very
controlled environment. And you learn little techniques each
-- the stunt coordinator has a way of doing things, and you
learn little tricks along the way, and you make things your
own, or you combine different things. I learned a new trick
on this one, so that was fun. Sometimes you film things in
reverse and it helps when you rewind that tape that it looks
like you come up from the ground and stand up and have the
bat meet your forehead in slow-motion, and then when they
fast-forward it, it looks like she really hit you and you
fell to the ground, and it's a safer way of doing it. So
there were quite a few of those that we played around with."
6. And I hear you're back on The Bold & The Beautiful as
"I did a stint, and I'm done with our original little
agreement, so I don't know -- everything is up in the air
right now literally. 90210, I did that and it was canceled.
So I'm a free bird right now, so we'll wait and see kind of
what comes my way. It would be so great to go back to 'The
Bold and the Beautiful.' I just -- rarely do you make such
deep-rooted relationships. To have a series on the air that
long, there's just no way -- they're your family, and
literally exchange with my core family, my biological
brother, mom, and dad. And that's rare on soaps. You have so
many different steps and half siblings, and whatever. ??
with my core family, and I'm really curious to see if the
writers miss writing for Bridget, so --
7. You get to find out what Brooke and Bill have been up
"Brooke does attempt to ?? Of course, Brooke does it in
her perfect loving, every action she does is from her heart,
and it's about love and passion, so she always has the best
intentions, but she can really create a mess.
8. Was it strange filming without Ronn Moss, Susan
Flannery, and Jack Wagner around?
"It was a little weird, I have to say. They come up in
conversation, and we talk about how they're doing, just
things like that. They're such a huge, huge part of the
show. Even if they're not there, they're still there. I just
can't imagine the show going on for another couple of years
and not see them back on some level. Susan can always come
back as a ghost or somebody's self-conscience. And Ronn can
always come back, and Jack can always come back, so -- It
was nice to work with just my family members and Bridget has
such a history with Stephanie and Ridge and, obviously,
10. What have you been doing during your absence besides
filming this movie?
"I've done quite a bit. Another movie that you can now
see the trailer on Facebook and YouTube, and I tweeted it a
little bit. It's a beautiful independent called 'Angel's
Perch.' It's a small little movie, but it has such a huge
heart, and it's such a slice of real life and real issues
and I'm really proud of it. It's going to be theatrically
released this year. I don't have any specific dates yet.
It's fun to watch the trailer, and I want to encourage
people to find 'Angel's Perch' and watch the trailer. It's a
sweet, sweet movie."
11. Do you have any other movies or TV appearances
"There are a couple of things in the works but nothing is
in stone yet, so we'll see about that."
12. Why do you think fans will like "A Sister's
"I think they'll be excited to root for the right team.
This is a great example of the past catches up with you, you
need to be aware of your actions, and that every action does
have a consequence, but ultimately the truth does prevail. I
think that these characters are very relatable, and although
they might be extreme, they can see themselves in these
characters. It's just a great guilty-pleasure thriller, and
I really hope that they want to be on the ride with us.
"You do feel badly for my character for a portion of the
film and then her actions no longer -- are disproportionate
from any emotion that we may have toward her.
