Ashleigh Murray Had $12 In Her Bank Account Before Booking 'Riverdale'

Ashleigh Murray is opening up about her days as a struggling actress.

The Riverdale talent recently revealed that she was completely broke before booking her role as Josie on the show.

“I was $4,700 behind in rent. I lived in New York City, so it was a lot of money. And I was just about to take a break from acting for about six months, until I could get myself back on my feet financially, and then hit the ground running,” Ashleigh told Collider.com. “This was my last audition. So, I went on the audition, and the next day, I was on my way home from the grocery store with $12 in my bank account. I had to call my mom and ask her for an extra $5 because the last of it went to food at Whole Foods, just so that I could get home.”

Ashleigh also said, “This was my first big audition for pilot season, and I was so broke. I didn’t have money to do my laundry, so I was washing my clothes in my bathroom sink. And then, I ran up the street and begged the guy at the laundry mat that I go to, all the time, to please let me dry my clothes there because I had a big audition the next morning. So, he let me dry my clothes for free. I stayed up all night, printing out resumes and headshots.”

    I was paid 104000 bucks last 12 months by doing an internet work while I was able to do it by w­orking in my own time f­o­r several hours on a daily basis. I used work opportunity I found out on-line and therefore I am excited that I was capable to earn such decent earnings. It’s actually newbie-friendly and therefore I am so blessed that I discovered out regarding it. Look out for what I do… http://urlfat.com/4Bd
