Ashley is ecstatic about returning to Portland Center Stage for this show — being in Rent is a dream come true! She is an award-winning, half-Korean actor/producer who co-founded Desert Island Studios to increase artists’ accessibility to film resources. When Ashley was 16, she applied to NYU to study acting. She was admitted on a full merit scholarship, which was good because she lied when she told her parents she had applied to other schools. She ended up training at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. Ashley would like to thank her partner, Joe, without whom she would probably never eat a home-cooked meal. She is grateful to be a part of this incredibly talented team of creators. @ashleysongmellinger @desertislandstudiospdx
