Interview with Star Wars: The Clone Wars actor Ashley Eckstein, celebrity co-host of 2011 Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

It’s the time of year on the Walt Disney World calendar when Storm Troopers, Jedi, Ewoks, droids, and all sorts of alien life forms make their way to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekends.  I recently chatted with one of the hosts for this year’s event, actress Ashley Eckstein, voice of Ahsoka Tano from the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and founder of the Her Universe clothing line.

Now before you say, “I’m a Disney fan and could care less about Star Wars.”  You should know that Ashley is as big of a Disney fan as they come – with growing up in Orlando, first job at Hollywood Studios, and wedding reception at the Grand Floridian, just a few of her relevant fan credentials.  Click here to read and listen to just how much pixie dust runs alongside the midi-chlorians in Ashley Eckstein’s veins.
