6 Big-A** Movie Roles One YA Actress Tried (And Failed) to Land
Ever since her breakout role in The Twilight Saga as Alice Cullen, Ashley Greene has been in search of the next big thing. NGL, she kinda disappeared after starring alongside Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart! Yes, she acted in some smaller movies, but she’s still waiting for her post-Twilight break.
While the 28-year-old actress revealed to E! News that she’s totally DONE with teen movies, she still need to keep her options open and work on the whole auditioning thing, especially considering the number of roles she’s gotten close to, but still didn’t end up landing in the past!
Here are all of the films we could’ve seen this YA actress in:
Bella Swan, Twilight
We all remember Ashley as Alice Cullen in the book-turned-movie series, but did you know she was originally up for the role of Bella Swan played by Kristen Stewart?! How did that happen?? According to Ashley:
"I went in and auditioned and actually they called me back in and said, 'No, you're not right for Bella,' so I was bummed, and then they brought me back for Alice. I worked more on it — that was all I did for a couple of days before I went in. I came in probably like five times before I actually got the role — and then I went home for Christmas and literally just had to wait and wait. I thought that I didn't get it again, and then I got the call that I was Alice and I freaked out and called my dad and mom," she told Saturday Night Magazine. At least she still got into her favorite book!
