Ashley gave E! the exclusive of the first details on her upcoming ‘Pan Am’ role!:
It’s always nice to have a backup plan when you’re one of the stars of a megafranchise that’s about to end. For example: Breaking Dawn‘s Ashley Greene is headed to prime-time television.
Greene just booked a three-episode arc on ABC’s Pan Am, but the details surrounding her role have been sparse. Until now.
Greene fills us in on the part, plus she reveals why she chose this as her first post-Twilight Saga gig…
“I think Pan Am to me, when I look at it and when I watch it, seems like a mix of movie and TV; it’s not quite a film, it’s not quite TV. And it’s a really interesting thing, kind of along the lines of what HBO does,” Greene says. “I think it’s just very beautifully and well shot. And it’s in the 1960s, and I’ve been wanting to do something like that for a while.”
Well, when you’re part of one of the biggest movie series of all time, you tend to be a little too busy to drop in on a television series.
But the Pan Am producers saw their chances when Greene found a space in her schedule after Breaking Dawn: Part 1 premiered.
“They approached me probably a week ago and asked if I wanted to be a part of it, and I read this three-episode arc,” Greene told us. “It’s very interesting; it’s different than anything I’ve ever done. So I’m excited.”
Greene will play Amanda, a childhood friend of Ted (Michael Mosley). “Their fathers are very good friends and [she] may or may not be romantically interested in him,” she tells us. “But she definitely has a twist. I feel like all of the characters have a twist, and so it was a very interesting character that I haven’t done yet.”
Her first episode, titled “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,” airs Dec. 4.
