Ashley Wade is a hard working, faith driven sweetheart with a larger than life personality and enormous raw talent. A native of New Jersey, Wade found her love for the arts at a very young age while singing solo’s in church and starring in school plays. Her favorite stage moment to date was starring in the plays Hello Dolly as Dolly and Ain’t Misbehavin’ as Nell Carter.
During Wade’s senior year of high school she was awarded a full tuition scholarship to pursue a three year nursing program. Upon graduation she enrolled into college and started nursing classes. After a year and a half of core courses she discontinued her nursing pursuits to follow her true passion, acting.
While auditioning and stomping the pavement of New York City to seek out work on television pilots and feature films, Wade realized that there was so much to learn about the entertainment industry. In order to further develop her craft, she decided to go back to college, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.
While attending college, Wade worked at the Borgata Hotel and Casino as a print model and cocktail waitress. Quickly after earning her degree, she realized a move was necessary in order to fulfill her dreams. Wade now resides in Los Angeles, California.
In only three months, Wade landed her first featured role on 2 Broke Girls. She continues to work hard auditioning, while steadily being featured in a variety of television shows and films, body doubling different actors and attending ongoing trainings and acting classes.
