Five Favorite Films with The Clone Wars' Ashley Eckstein

The voice actor and Star Wars fashion designer also talks about fandom and Lucasfilm.

Ashley Eckstein

Ashley Eckstein is a busy woman these days; not only is she lending her voice to the character of Ahsoka Tano on The Clone Wars animated series, she's also recently launched Her Universe, the first line of Star Wars apparel exclusively for women. We caught up with her to talk about her five favorite films, her clothing line, and what it's like to be a longtime Star Wars fan that gets to work with Lucasfilm.

The Empire Strikes Back

First, I've got to go with Star Wars: A New Hope. Wait, switch that... I actually like Empire better, because that's the movie where the girl finally gets her man.

Notting Hill (1999, 82% Tomatometer)
Notting Hill

I'm going to sound super-cheesy, but I've got to go with Notting Hill. That's probably my all-time favorite romantic comedy. That's high on my list. I've fallen in love with London, and there just something about what I love about London, combined with a romantic comedy. And then of course, Julia Roberts; I mean she's just romantic comedy gold.

Alice in Wonderland (1951, 82% Tomatometer)
Alice in Wonderland

Disney's Alice in Wonderland, not the new one, the old one. The cartoon Alice in Wonderland is high on my list. Alice is my favorite. I grew up in Orlando, Florida, and my dad worked for Disney. So growing up, I actually had the Alice dress, and I had long blonde hair and blue eyes, and so I looked just like her.

The Shawshank Redemption (1994, 88% Tomatometer)

That's my husband's all-time favorite movie. He loves it, and so we'll watch that one together. We really enjoy that.

Legally Blonde (2001, 67% Tomatometer)

I was just watching it the other day, and I just love Reese Witherspoon. I think she's good in everything she does.

Next, Ashley talks about her clothing line and what it's like to be part of the Lucasfilm family.
