Ashley Greene Dishes on Her New Movie CBGB and Working With Castle Star Stana Katic

Here’s a small interview with Ashley Greene, who is costarring in CBGB with Stana. In the last question, she has a couple of nice things to say about Stana. 🙂

What do Castle‘s Stana Katic and Twilight’s Ashley Greene have in common? Not only are they both stunning brunette bombshells, but they’re both starring in the upcoming film CBGB, based on New York City’s infamous punk rock nightclub.

Wetpaint Entertainment recently caught up with Ashley on January 16, 2013 at the opening of Andrea’s, a restaurant in Encore at the Wynn Las Vegas, where she dished on the movie and what it was like working with Castle’s leading lady.

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.

What was it like working with Stana Katic?
We didn’t have the chance to spend that much time together, unfortunately, because the cast is so big and extraordinary. But I did get to work with her a little bit and she’s fantastic. She’s so professional and, of course, she’s completely gorgeous.
