Cultural Spotlight: Keeping Up With Revenge Star Ashley Madekwe!
Revenge is returning back to ABC on Sunday September 30th so I thought I should give CulturalToast.com readers what they really want and it’s their most searched for person from the hit show – British-Nigerian actress Ashley Madekwe. I’ve read the e-mails, you all are just as obsessed with Ashley’s style as I am.
Last season we witness Ashley’s character Ashely Davenport hook up with Grayson’s heir Daniel. Ashley has truly played her cards right from her days as being labeled Revenge’s favorite Chief social planner and Victoria Grayson’s party planner/assistant/Grayson Family spokesperson! Anyone else enjoys the idea of Daniel being with Ashley? She made her move during the cliffhanger of Revenge’s season 1 finale and Daniel took it.
In Revenge Season 2 premiere – “Destiny” Ashley and Daniel shared an awkward encounter with Daniel’s ex fiancé Emily Thorne/real Amanda! Ashley continues to prove that life after Tyler drama is good when you rubbed elbows with the right person. To think she spent the entire season trying to make good with Victoria Grayson to get into that elite lifestyle when she suddenly realizes that Daniel is her ticket in. Thanks to the good folks at Wet Paint Revenge here’s some Revenge season 2 spoilers! FYI: Mike Kelly is hinting at Daniel and Ashley being the new younger generation of Conrad & Victoria Grayson!
Mike Kelley on how the Daniel & Ashley relationship will foreshadow Daniel’s evolution into his father, Conrad Grayson:
“This whole Ashley bit with Daniel is going to play out in a really fun way for us next season. He’s not a pawn any longer. He’s made some pretty dark choices, and I don’t think that feeling misled by Emily is going to make him any nicer. We’re going to continue the ride to the dark side with Daniel. Emily is kind of the odd man out now, right? That’s not going to sit well with her. think Ashley is going to get perilously close to making herself a target to Emily. You know, the fun thing with Ashley is that there are some surprises that we’ve been holding on her. I can’t wait to bring to light something about Ashley that will make everyone go, ‘”Oh! That’s why she’s hanging on!'” (E!)
I would definitely raid Ashley’s closet because her Revenge TV style is amazing! Is that a Azzedine Alaia dress? That’s all I’m giving you now on Revenge! Tune in on Sunday September 30th! When Ashley’s not busy shooting season 2 of Revenge, she’s balancing being a fashion blogger via her blog Ring My Bell with gorgeous street style photos taken by her husband Iddo Goldberg. These two have great chemistry and it shows through the photos. Her blog is worth checking out! Ashley and Iddo got hitched over the Revenge hiatus Summer break!
