Ashley Madekwe is our Woman Crush Wednesday this week. The British actress and style blogger currently resides in Los Angeles. She has appeared in TV shows such as The Bill, West 10 LDN, Trial & Retribution, Secret Diary Of A Call Girl, Wallander, Bedlam, Revenge and Salem. Ashley has also appeared in films such as Venus, Cassandra’s Dream and How To Lose Friends and Alienate People.
Least likely to…adopt a typical LA lifestyle. She’s a true Brit and starts every morning with a cup of a London store-brand tea.
Impress her with…a queue jump pass for Disneyland. In an inyterview with Glamour magazine the Salem actress mentioned her biggest perk. She said, “Going to Disneyland for free and having a VIP guide and not having to line up for the rides…”
Mention…her blog. Ashley runs her own successful fashion and personal style blog called Ring My Bell. Ashley started her blog in 2009 while living in New York and it has gone from strength to strength ever since. On Twitter she currently has over 117,000 followers (@smashleybell ) whilst on Instagram she currently has over 310,000 followers.
And another thing…Ashley was born in London to an English mother and a mixed-race father of Nigerian and Swiss descent. In June 2012, Ashley married her long term boyfriend, actor Iddo Goldberg.
