“I was rushing to this audition during a lunch break…I was on a train, which I had never been on before. I was late and I like to never watch my audition sides in public. I don’t know why, because it feels private to me… But I was because I was stuffing those lines,” she said on The Kelly Clarkson Show.
“Then I feel that faucet behind me, and it’s that girl and she’s got all these Doc Marten bags and she says, ‘I’m so sorry. It’s so random. I just saw that it says Emily in Paris and Mindy. I’m actually going to a fitting with Lily Collins right now, and I’m coming, it’s so random. We haven’t decided on that role yet,” she continued.
“And I was like, oh my God, universe, I don’t have to watch these lines,” she said. “It was one of those New York moments that went by so quickly. I went to the audition and fast forward, I got it eventually and I was in Paris, and I said Lily this story.”
“I was like, ‘Lily, it’s so crazy. Like it was meant to be, I met this girl and she got the Doc Martens.’ And then apparently Lily Recount Patricia Field, our costume designer and her team. And one of the partners named Erica was like, ‘That was me on the train.’ ” she says. “So she came up to me during my camera test and said, ‘Ashley, I have to tell you something. The reason I was even looking over your shoulder and seeing the sides was because I had just taken a picture of you to send to Patricia as inspiration for Mindy’s fashion in the show. “
