For Whom the (Ashley) Bell Tolls?

Ashley Bell
 Ashley Bell is the daughter of Michael Bell, who I wrote about in this post -
Michael Bell from 'War is Hell'

The Last Exorcism (2010). 
Her performance garnered her an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress and an MTV Movie Award nomination, while the film grossed nearly $70 million, worldwide. 
The New York Post praised Bell's performance as "Oscar-worthy" and one of the 10 best performances of 2010 for her extraordinary portrayal of the possessed "Nell Sweetzer", which she will reprise in the highly-anticipated sequel, entitled  
The Last Exorcism Part II (2013), set to be released, nationwide, on March 1, 2013.
 Ashley started her acting career on the TV show Boston Public

And played Tonya in a few episodes of United States of Tara.
 She did some voice work in the movie State of Play,

and also voiced 'The White Queen' in the Alice in Wonderland
video game.
" Prepare to journey down the rabbit hole and into a land beyond your wildest imaginings. 
In Alice in Wonderland, the world of the dazzling Tim Burton film bursts onto your screen, filled with all the whimsical, fantastical adventure of the movie and the classic book that inspired it.

 Ashley also starred in a six minute short called Initiation .
"An assassin trainee struggles with initiation day jitters."
 She plays Mary in a film called The Day,

and plays a redhead in The Truth About Angels.
The cat Erline is voiced by Bell in the video game Sorcery -
" Players take the role of a young sorcerer's apprentice, named Finn, and must master the arcane arts in order to protect his homeland. 
The Nightmare Queen has broken the ancient pact with mankind and threatens to cover the land in eternal night, sending her foul minions across the land. 
Finn, together with the magical cat Erline, must travel through the dark Faerie Kingdoms to save the land from the darkness that has enshrouded it."
Ashley plays Lilly Carter in The Marine 3:Homefront 
and Cathy in The Bounce-back .
 Then Molly in 'Chasing Shakespeare'
In her next film Ashley plays Lady Heavenly in a movie called Sparks.
"A masked vigilante who discovers the dark side to heroism.
