As Star Wars fans gear up for The Clone Wars Season 4 in September, Josh Lyons from FilmWatch has posted a San Diego Comic-Con interview with Ashley Eckstein. Their conversation ranged from Ashley's work on The Clone Wars to Her Universe to Ahsoka's status as a role model for young girls. Here's a snippet from the interview where Ashley discusses her performance in the Mortis arc:
JL: What was it like for you playing regular/good Ahsoka versus when she flips to the dark side? What challenges were there to make that switch?
AE: That was a lot of fun! That was probably my favorite episode arc of the entire series. To be able to play present Ahsoka, older/future Ahsoka and then Dark Side Ahsoka in the same episode arc was amazing. Something that as an actress that's the type of material you want cause you can do a lot with it. It's very challenging, but I just had a good time with it. For Dark Ahsoka I definitely had to lower my voice. And Dark Side Ahsoka was definitely difficult cause, I mean, Ahsoka's so positive all the time. It was hard to get her to that place, but I had great direction. Great direction from Dave Filoni. And I had some help from my fellow actors, James Arnold Taylor and just lots of good help.
