Ashley Michele Greene was born on February 21, 1987. It was announced on February 19, 2008 that she would play Alice Cullen in the Twilight movie. She originally auditioned for the role of Bella Swan, but later got a call that she had been given the role of Alice Cullen. Author Stephenie Meyer said that Greene was the actor who came closest to her vision for their character. Meyer said, "I saw a picture of her and just thought, 'You found Alice! Oh my gosh!'"
Early lifeGreene was born in Jacksonville, Florida, the daughter of Michele, who works in insurance, and Joe Greene, a U.S. Marine who now owns his own concrete business. She grew up in Middleburg and Jacksonville, and went to University Christian School before transferring to Wolfson High School when she was in tenth grade. She moved to Los Angeles, California, at the age of 17 to pursue an acting career. Greene has one sibling, an older brother named Joe, who still resides in Jacksonville with his parents.
In 2005, Greene appeared on Punk'd, followed by appearances on Crossing Jordan and Desire in 2006 and King of California in 2007.
Her big break came in 2008 when she was cast as Alice Cullen in Twilight, after finishing Shark and Otis and appearing in the post-production video of Radio Free Albemuth. She went on to film Summer's Moon and Skateland, both of which were released in 2009, as well as returning as Alice Cullen in New Moon and Eclipse. She also plays the characters Alice in both parts of the Breaking Dawn films.
Greene will also make the move to television, having been cast in an upcoming ABC drama series called Americana in which she will portray a young up-and-coming fashion designer. She recently appeared in 3 episodes of another ABC series, Pan Am. However, Americana was passed over by ABC.
Greene's love life has also started to receive a lot of attention from the press. Her most high-profile relationship was with singer Joe Jonas, whom she dated from fall 2010 to March 2011.
