Tropes Associated with Ashley Eckstein:

  • Dawson Casting: She is currently in her 30s, but when she did Ahsoka's voice in The Clone Wars, Ahsoka was a teenager. This is averted in her appearance in Rebels, which set 14 years later, in which at this point, Ahsoka is about Ashley's age (her 30s).
    • It also creates some irony, as Ashley is actually 2 years older than Matt Lanter, who voices Anakin, who is about six years older than Ahsoka.
  • One of Us: She is a huge Disney fan, and a self-proclaimed geek, Star Wars and Doctor Who fan.
  • Promoted Fangirl: As noted, she's a huge Star Wars fan and becomes voice actress for Ahsoka Tano, one of the main characters in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
  • Star-Making Role: Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Interestingly, this role also helped her start her career as a fashion-designer.
