Ashley Jordyn is a film, television and theater actress who has trained in New York and London. She got her start in numerous independent New York short films after training with Seth Barrish of "The Barrow Group" and Peter Jensen of "T Schreiber Studios". She has also studied the Lecoq acting method at RADA, LAMDA and New York's Movement Theater Studio. In addition to her acting training, she is also a highly skilled improviser with extensive training and performance at NYC's UCB and The Magnet. Ashley is currently a master class member of industry-renowned camera acting coach Bob Krakower.
Ashley is coming off the heels of her breakout Recurring Guest Star as "Young Carol" on Season 6 of ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK. Her darkly comic and intense work on the show was met with both critical acclaim and an outpouring of fan appreciation.
Prior to her role on ORANGE, Ashley could be seen as a young doctor opposite Mariska Hargitay and Poorna Jagannathan on season 18 of Law & Order SVU. She is the love interest in the Tony Spiridakis produced and active festival circuit pilot GREENPORT.
In addition to acting, Ashley is a writer and producer of the award-winning short film THE SESSION. Acclaimed by HollyShorts as a "strange but beautiful journey" and a cross between "intense David Mamet-style psycho-drama and romantic comedy", Ashley showed both comedic and dramatic chops as a dominatrix on her first night of work. The film won BEST SHORT at the Academy qualifying MONTREAL WORLD FILM FESTIVAL.
Ashley is an advocate who works with EVAWI (End Violence Against Women International) and their campaign of #startbybelieving, which seeks to change the way we respond to victims of sexual assault.
