Ashley Clements was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. From an early age there was no stopping Ashley from performing, and despite receiving lots of good advice not to, she decided to pursue acting professionally. She studied undergraduate theater at Ithaca College and learned that snow is very cold, so after receiving her MFA in Acting from The Old Globe/University of San Diego Graduate Theatre Program, she moved to Los Angeles to be unemployed.
Ashley did not stay unemployed for long, however, as shortly after moving to Los Angeles she was cast in her break out role, Lizzie Bennet, in the ground-breaking digital series, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. The show was the first YouTube series to win a Primetime Emmy, and Ashley won a Streamy Award for Best Actress. She went on to appear in many other web series, notably Edgar Allan Poe's Murder Mystery Dinner Party, Inside the Extras Studio with Barry Bostwick, Video Game High School, BlackBoxTV, Muzzled the Musical, and in multiple series for HelloGiggles, one of which she wrote.
Her features include Non-Transferable (Best Actress - International Independent Film Awards), Call of the Void, and August Falls with Fairuza Balk and Alanna Ubach.
She has extensive theater credits that no one in LA cares about and she has performed at Carnegie Hall, which was just really cool.
Her latest endeavor, SONA, a sci-fi series she created and stars in, was acquired by Legendary Digital Networks and is now available on their SVOD, Alpha.
Ashley's upcoming projects include the series Wayward Guide for the Untrained Eye, the Christmas horror film All The Creatures Were Stirring, with Constance Wu, and shouting into the unknowable void.
In her free time she enjoys baking.
