The two on-screen sisters premiered their new film, Deidra & Laney Rob A Train, during the annual festival in between gifting lounge and portrait studio stops.
“The thing that’s really nice about this film is particularly the diversity of this cast,” Ashleigh shared in a recent interview. “This, like Riverdale, is not diverse for diversity sake, it’s just a picture of life and the circumstances that happens to these people- it has nothing to do with their background, it just happens.”
She adds, “It’s so bizarre, and you get to see the underdog come out on top, and it’s just wonderful. There’s a great line where the antagonist tells Deidra that he ‘doesn’t need proof, all he needs to do is make a phone call.’ I think that speaks so many volumes for what is going on in the world, and I think it will give people some hope and enlightenment that it doesn’t matter what walk of life you come from, or if you look like your parents or not, you can still succeed even in the worst of conditions.”
