Welcome to the official website for SAG Actress,
Voice-Over Artist and Model Ashly Covington.
Thank you for your interest.
Growing up in Virginia, Ashly’s first love was acting and she started pursuing her dream at a young age. When she was 12 she landed a spot as one of the co-stars for the Saturday afternoon children’s TV show WTVR TV 6’s For Kid Sake Ambassadors, where she learned about public speaking and news broadcasting. Ashly acted with the Virginia Commonwealth University’s Theatre with Children for Children program and in many productions throughout her high school and college years. She attended James Madison University, where she was active as a Theatre Major working in all areas of production from lighting & costume design to directing.
As an actress at JMU, Ashly played a wide range of characters including Arkadina in The Seagull, Climene in School for Wives and (her favorite) Lady Nannycoo in The Frog Prince. After college Ashly planned to pursue acting, but then her hands were noticed by a local agent. The agent suggested a place for Ashly to experience her very first manicure and within a few weeks booked her on her first hand job. Quickly, Ashly’s career as a hand model began to take off. Ashly later found out that she was a Legacy hand model – following in the footsteps of her grandmother whose long and graceful fingers had shown off typewriters ads in the 1930’s.
