Meet Ashley Zachary

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley Zachary.

Ashley Zachary is an entrepreneur, actor, producer, and content creator and originally from Detroit, Michigan and is now based in Long Beach, California. She had her debut on stage at California State Long Beach (CSULB) in a devised piece called Epic In or Out directed by Anna Steers and Juliette Carrillo and she also assisted with its development.

While attending CSULB, Ashley developed a strong relationship with the Multicultural Center where she fell in love with producing and directing. Through a partnership with them, the foundation of her nonprofit organization, Up & Coming Actors (UCA) was created. She produced and directed several theatre productions written by Tahirih Moeller, such as A Sense of Hope: Then and Now, People of Color, No Happy Color, Mainstream the Dream, and Queer Politicking.

Most recently, she has been taking improv classes with Mike Pointer, of Hey I saw your Commercial, where she received the foundation to audition in Hollywood confidently.

Ashley has always desired to be an actress. Her journey began at Los Medanos Community College (LMC) in Pittsburg, California where she obtained her AA in Liberal Arts with theatre Professor Nicholas Garia. Ashley has always learned differently, and it was while attending LMC that Ashley discovered she was being challenged by dyslexia disorder. With this discovery, she was then able to receive the proper assistance to further her education.

Ashley went on and obtained her BA in Theatre Performance Acting from CSULB, where she studied with distinguished, professional, working actors: Anna Steers, Karole Foreman, Asha Kamali, Alexandra Billings, Hugh O’Gorman and Roma Maffia.

Ashley then achieved her MA in Nonprofit Management from Antioch University of Los Angeles. She studied with esteemed professors such as Susan Nero, Bob Lazzarini and David Norgard, where she received the professional guidance to rebrand Up and Coming Actors nonprofit organization.

Ashley is the creator, and producer, writer, and actor in her comedy/drama web series and short film, which are coming soon.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
One of the biggest challenges for me is learning how to find the balance between actively auditioning And providing a roof over my head. Being at a regular job sucks the creativity out of me and I learn that throughout the year.
