Former Australian soap star Ashleigh Brewer will debut on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL in July as Eric’s nice, Ivy, the daughter of the designer’s younger brother John, who has been living in Sydney. Soaps In Depth caught up with Brewer following her first few days of taping to find out how she’s settling into the role.
“My first day at work was last Friday, and it was a whirlwind day,” says the Queensland-born actress, whose previous acting role was a five-year stint on the Australian soap NEIGHBORS. “I was lucky in that a lot of my scenes were group scenes, so there were eight or nine of us on set. I got to meet a big handful of the B&B cast all at once.”
Brewer admits her life has been a whirlwind since her casting was announced, and she’s even been invited to join B&B’s retinue in Monte Carlo at the annual International Television Festival in June. “I feel like I’m not even deserving of it yet, because I’ve only worked a few days like I’m cheating the system,” she jokes. “I’ve gotten all of these incredible perks before I even officially started airing. It’s as if I’m dreaming all of this a little bit!”
