Ashlee Heath

Stalking Ashlee Heath on imdb
by JimmyLee Smith

Ashlee Heath is another one of my favorite actors that I have have been fortunate to have worked with.  I follow her career on imdb.

She is amazing on and off the set. Since those days, she has been in McGyver (2019) and Dynasty (2020). She has range. She is excellent in her serious roles, but I have always held that comedy requires even a better actor, and she plays comedy well.  Check out her demo reels. I especially like the commercial about the x-ray.

And back when she was just starting out, we worked together in a fun short called 'Public' by Leslie Kelso. Everyone who talks to me about it calls it "Heather.' That was Ashlee's character. She obviously stole the show. Watch it here on

EarLuminator Interview with Kenny Cook
by JimmyLee Smith

I met Kenny Cook in the reception room at Creative Studios of Atlanta. We were both starting out in the acting business. Since then, I have been fortunate to work on several projects with Kenny. He has great comedic timing and expression. He proved his great skill playing the 'straight' man without laughing at Ashlee Heath's character in the short 'Sober'.

EL: How long have you been actin…

People decorate their houses for the seasons and my table is crowded with the people who aren't here. sometimes just a moment when there's a song on the radio it reminds me i've forgotten to remember you are gone. They say there's just so many days you have to wait but this hole inside my heart does not seem to dissipate. i take each day, i make it good, i try to live it so that people can not see some pieces of my heart are gone. and i do not use those words like home or forever cause the meaning of those words have changed since you've been gone. They say there's just so many days you have to wait but this hole inside my heart does not seem to dissipate. my friend said something, made me laugh, it was so funny i thought i had to tell you cause for an instant i forgot. I saw a snowman in the store around the corner I almost bought it cause i know you'd love it so. They say there's just so many days you hav…
