Ashley Fuller Olsen is an American actress, producer, executive producer,
fashion designer and fashion model. She has had a successful acting career
beginning at a very young age, in roles with her twin sister Mary-Kate Olsen. Ashley Olsen began her career at the age of
nine months, when she and her sister Mary-Kate were hired to share the role of
Michelle Tanner on the popular television series Full House in 1987. To comply
with strict child labor laws regarding child actors, Ashley and Mary-Kate took
turns during taping of the show. Both girls were credited as "Mary Kate
Ashley Olsen" in an attempt to deter audiences from coming to the
realization that the girls were in fact twins playing the role of Michelle
Tanner. Following Full House, Ashley released a string of successful
straight-to-video movies and became a popular figure in the preteen market
during the late '90s and early 2000s. Her name became a cottage industry, with
her likeness seen in clothes, books, fragrances, magazines, movies and posters.
There were even fashion dolls of her made by Mattel from 2000-2005. She starred
in the video series The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley, the ABC show Two
of a Kind, and ABC Family's So Little Time. They were ranked number three on
the VH1 program 100 Greatest Child Stars. In 2004, Ashley appeared alongside
her twin sister in the theatrical light-hearted romantic comedy, New York
Minute, also starring Eugene Levy. Both Mary-Kate and Ashley work on their
fashion line called Elizabeth and James, which is named after their brother and
sister. In 2008, Mary-Kate and Ashley released a book titled
"Influence", which contained interviews with many creative and
influential people including Karl Lagerfeld, Terry Richardson, Diane von
Furstenberg and many more. The book received positive reviews not only by
critics but also by fans of the twins.
Born June 13, 1986 her primary personality traits are represented by the
Chinese Zodiac elemental animal sign, the Fire Tiger. Fire plus Tiger equals a
stick of dynamite, a human dynamo. In addition to the Tiger's usual passion and
creativity, she has seemingly endless energy. She is among the greatest risk
takers and does not hesitate to push the limits in almost anything she does.
When she controls her temper and penchant for melodrama, she is among the most
colorful, fun people to be around. Depending on her level of common sense she
can do big things or fail spectacularly.
