There's a whole bunch of exciting TV on this week, but amid all the season premieres and big second episodes, I'm excited to cozy up with a new installment of my darling Greek. Recently, I got to join a group of TV reporters in a chat with Amber Stevens, who plays Casey's stalwart best friend (and shopaholic), Ashleigh. We talked a little about her friendship with Casey, her hopes for the show, and her favorite Ashleigh moments. Here are the highlights:
What surprises can we expect during initiation and Hell Week coming up this season [Oct. 28]?
Ooh, well, we do have a special surprise — well, I guess it’s not a surprise anymore — that LC will be on the show in that episode. That’s something to look forward to. It’s kind of a really exciting episode because it’s what you’ve been waiting for the whole time; you really want to see how Rusty handles it. There’s a huge surprise with the ZBZ initiations. I can’t go into detail, but it’s really exciting and it shocked all the actors on the show. We got the scripts and we were calling each other, freaking out, going, "Oh, my God! What is this?"
Ashleigh’s had a lot of wackier antics on Greek over the past couple of years, including the flip flop incident. I’m wondering if you have a favorite Ashleigh plotline that’s been the most fun for you to play.
I really, really liked [the episode] when Ashleigh becomes the tour guide. Gil Younger directed the episode, who directed our pilot and our first two episodes of the show ever, and I just had a lot of fun working with him. He came up with the whole thing where I’m giving the tour, and we’re walking, and we’re walking, and I had to take the whole group through and then introduced my friends. I just thought that was hilarious. She gets to be the leader for once, and kind of tell people what’s cool around campus and she just has fun with that.
