Ashley Greene talks about her work on the film 'CBGB'
The film chronicles the rise of the famous NYC bar
Wetpaint Entertainment: What can you tell us about your role in CBGB?
Ashley Greene: I play a character named Lisa Crystal and she, in real life, is one of the producers on the film. So I get to play someone who’s there, who’s alive and on set, which was equal parts amazing and intimidating.
We're used to seeing you as Twilight's quirky vampire Alice. How did this role challenge you?
It’s a very different character than ones I’ve played previously. She’s a hard New Yorker, very business-oriented. She’s the one who really started CBGB. She’s his daughter. Alan Rickman plays my dad and it was just really great to work with him. They have a very love-hate relationship. She kind of was the adult in the relationship. He was very artistic and very passionate and she stepped to take over the business side. It was a very, very fun role to play.
