Newsarama Interviews Ashley Eckstein

Posted By Mike on April 19, 2009



Click here and visit Newsarama for an interview with the voice of Ahsoka Tano on The Clone Wars, Ashley Eckstein. Check out the excerpt below:


"This love of baseball goes way beyond her now being married to current San Diego Padre David Eckstein. She sees some of America’s past time in the character she plays on Star Wars: Clone Wars, Ahsoka Tano.

“I definitely relate to Ahsoka in a lot of ways,” says Eckstein. “Now I’ve grown and become more of a girly girl, but at times deep down we’re both tomboys. Ahsoka is who I was when I was her age, 14. You couldn’t get me to wear a dress. I just wanted to be like my older brother and hang with the boys.

“Because she’s so small, I think second base; second or short. She’s such a spark plug, agile and cat-like she would be a natural. She can jump and dive, so she can definitely handle the double play. It fits her temperament, and not only because she’s such a sparkplug. She’s also very smart. She knows how to strategize. That’s something I didn’t even understand until I met my husband. I love baseball, but I was just a casual fan. He taught me just how much strategy goes into the game. Now I’m a total baseball junkie so I really appreciate strategy. In fact, I was taught a lot of it by Mr. La Russa (a.k.a, Tony, Eckstein's former manager on the St. Louis Cardinals). Suffice it to say, ESPN is on constantly in our house."'
