Ashley’s guest arc on the period drama ‘Pan Am’ will start tonight, December 4th, 10 EST | 9 central on ABC! After today’s episode, reruns will play over the holidays and the show will return beginning of January with five more episodes, three of which will also guest star Ashley!
If you are in North America make sure to tune in for all the upcoming episodes. It must be expected there would be a significant boost on Pan Am’s ratings with Ashley coming aboard, and we don’t want to disappoint ;)! Ratings are actually very crucial at this point. ABC announced that they’re committed to airing all the 14 episodes of the season, but whether or not the show will be cancelled afterwards or come back for a second season is still undecided. The ratings for the remaining 6 episodes and the reruns will be the basis for ABC’s decision. If you can’t watch, just make sure to switch to ABC on Sundays at 10 ET and mute the voice, or DVR the show and watch it within the next 24 hours (you won’t be counted otherwise). It’s actually really good and deserves a chance to grow and find its audience.
So, don’t forget to tune in for Ashley’s first appearance tonight, and feel free to come back here and discuss the episode in the comments!

With the beginning of the end of the vampire saga in theatres now, the actress reflects on the experience and discusses what’s to come for her career.
Since she was cast in 2008, Ashley Greene has had the job of stepping into one of the most beloved characters from Stephenie Meyer’s The Twilight Saga novels. As Alice Cullen, she plays Edward’s (Robert Pattinson) closest sibling and possibly Bella’s (Kristen Stewart) fiercest protector next to him and Jacob (Taylor Lautner).
As with any film series based on novels with a rabid fan base, the responsibility must weigh heavily on an actress. For 24-year-old Greene, that seems especially true.
“This was my first real job as an actor and in a million years, I never could have dreamed up what Twilight would become,” Greene tells The Hollywood Reporter.
“I got a crash course in Hollywood, getting to work with four amazing directors, learning the ups and downs of the industry, and growing both personally and professionally,” she continues. “It gave all of us a springboard for our careers and the most amazing and passionate fan base we could imagine. You can’t take one second of an experience and an opportunity like this for granted. I still wake up every day pinching myself.”
On the eve of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1’smassive opening weekend, Greene opened up to THR about the film’s success, her experience being a part of the phenomenon, and what fans can expect from her next.
Sun, 11.20.11 | 8:14:44 am
“Twilight” Week continues here at BAM’s Blog, and with this weekend’s release of the penultimate film in the saga, “Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” series star Ashley Greene is looking beyond the “Twilight” phase in her career.
“I think ‘Twilight’ has given us a really good jumping off point, and one of the things I’m most thankful for — other than the fan base that we’ve developed — is that it gave me the ability to say no and to really sit back and wait for something that was inspiring to me and that was different and that I was passionate about,” she told me in an exclusive, one-on-one interview at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles during the recent press day for the film.
“I think that’s one of most tragic things is when you have to take a (role). You know, it’s hard to say no to a job if you can’t pay your rent, and sometimes that kind of tarnishes someone’s career a little bit, I think. So I’ve been lucky enough to really sit back with my team and say you know, ‘What do we think about this?’ and ‘Does this character interest you?’ and ‘Is the film as a whole great, and who’s directing it?’ and just really look at all the elements. I think the most important thing right now is to kind of create longevity and to be really smart about the choices that I’m making.”
Greene’s post-“Twilight” acting career is starting Dec. 4 with a three-episode arc on ABC’s 1960s-set aviation drama “Pan Am.” She recently signed on for “Olivia Twisted,” an ultramodern female version of “Oliver Twist.”
She also stars in the comedic films “Butter” with Jennifer Garner and Hugh Jackman and “LOL” with Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore.
“I’m very interested in comedy,” she said, adding that “Butter” was the first project “that I was terrified, but it ended being really fun. You know, I took the role and then was like ‘Oh my God, what am I doing? I don’t know what I’m doing.’ You know, it was all very new. I’m still learning every day and taking different parts that I’ve never done.”
Another project she found inspiring: “The Apparition,” the feature film debut from Tulsa writer-director Todd Lincoln. who created the hit deadCenter Film Festival documentary “Biker Fox.” In Lincoln’s thriller, she and Sebastian Stan play a couple terrorized by a supernatural force that feeds on their fears.
“It was really fun working with him, and … you could just tell that this was his baby and he was so passionate about it. And Todd actually fought for me on that movie. I met with him, and he was kind of one of the driving forces that got me that role, so (I’m) very thankful for that,” she said.
She also said that she’s thankful to have one more “Twilight” film coming up: “Breaking Dawn: Part 2″ opens in theaters Nov. 16, 2012.
“I think the end of ‘Twilight’ is like the beginning of the rest of my career. I think inevitably there’s gonna be that piece of me that’s missing. I feel like because ‘Twilight’s’ become such a huge part of my world and it’s all I’ve know for the past four years, it’s like leaving high school a bit. You’re very excited about it, but you still know that you’re gonna kind of miss it. It’s a very huge change that’s going to happen. But I’m very optimistic about it and very excited about it, and I at least know that next year we have another one coming out. So even though I’ve kind of had to shelf the Alice Cullen character — which is a little difficult — I’m still gonna have these events and press junkets and cast dinners and premieres and stuff like that. They’re kind of weaning us off it rather than just cold turkey.”

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.

It was announced, Friday,that Ashley will guest star on ABC’s 60’s drama ‘Pan Am’, and with a bit of help from google, we now have her character’s name and the synopsis of the first of three episodes she signed up for!
Pan Am Episode: “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”:Season 1, Episode 9Episode Synopsis: In London, Ted connects with an old flame (Ashley Greene), and Kate gets in over her head on her last courier mission. Back at home, Dean takes Colette to meet his parents and the two start to realize their feelings for one another.Original Air Date: Dec 4, 2011Guest Cast Jim Coope: Bill Lowrey Ann Dowd: Marjorie Lowrey Ashley Greene: Amanda Mason John Bedford Lloyd: Capt. Dennis Damian Young: Mr. Bolger David Harbour: Anderson Chris Beetem: Chris Rawlings
“Pan Am is about to introduce a woman from Ted’s past — and I mean his distant past. He and the newbie, Amanda Mason, were childhood playmates. Now, since she’s a senator’s daughter, he sees her as hoity-toity. The thing is, she’s not. So maybe a little somethin’-somethin‘ will develop between them over what is being talked about as a two- to three-episode arc.”
Tune in to see Ashley on the show Sunday Dec 4th, 10|9c on ABC!
