Episode 248.
"The Suicide Squad"
Actor: Lynne Ashe.
Lynne Ashe is a Georgia-born character actress known for playing quirky characters with big personalities. Classically trained in Shakespearean and British Restoration theatre, Lynne was primarily a stage actress until 2011, when she was approached by a stage director she’d formerly worked with asking her to audition for a film he’d written. She landed a supporting role in “Crackerjack” and thus began her screen career.

Lynne was one of the first two graduates of the nationally acclaimed theatre program known as the Gainesville Theatre Alliance, a joint program between UNG and Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia. Her graduate studies (in Theatre) were at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC, where she studied under the tutelage of James Dodding and thereby fell in love with Shakespeare and Restoration Theatre. Through Wake Forest, she obtained a grant to study for a summer in Stratford-upon-Avon with the Shakespeare Institute and the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.

Lynne is also a writer (poet, playwright and screenwriter) and jewelry artisan, selling her hand-make jewelry under the name “Ashelyn Designs” on Etsy.

Lynne finds it ironic that the southern dialect she strove so hard to overcome/neutralize during her high school and college theatre training was the very thing that helped land her first few screen roles. She had to re-train an accent she’d formerly tried to restrain.

Lynne is an advocate for raising awareness about an adipose-tissue and lymphatic disorder known as Lipedema, which primarily affects women, a condition which causes the body to create a type of fat on the lower half of the body which cannot be metabolized.
