What can you tell me about Ashley Fink, who plays Lauren Zizes on Glee?
—Hayley Stompanato, Leesville, Md.
Fink, 24, has been acting since she was 4, when she landed the lead in her school play in Houston. When her family moved to Los Angeles, she attended an arts high school, where she starred in the plays The Wizard of Oz (as the Lion) and You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown (as Lucy).
Before landing Glee and Glee: The 3D Concert Movie, Fink was one of the stars of ABC Family's Huge. The plus-size actress admits to being a big fan of Glee prior to joining the cast and says that hasn't changed now that she is a part of it. "I get to watch what I think are the future's brightest stars, and watching them is amazing. Where everybody else watches it on TV, I'm actually in the room, so I'm getting a personal performance."
Fink's film credits also include Fat Girls, You Again and the indie horror cult hit All About Evil.
