A true-blue Southern girl, Ashley McCall Scott began her career as a model. With her blonde All-American looks, she segued smoothly into acting, getting parts on high profile series like "Birds of Prey" (The WB, 2002-03) and "Dark Angel" (Fox, 2000-02), before landing her breakout role as Emily Sullivan on the post-nuclear holocaust drama, "Jericho" (CBS, 2006- ).Born on July 13, 1977, Scott was a child model and became so enchanted with that career choice, that by her high school years, she moved to New York City to try her hand at high fashion modeling. As an international model, she walked the catwalk in fashion shows in Milan and Paris, before changing career lanes, focusing instead on acting as a career. At her first audition, she worked opposite Al Pacino for a part in the feature film, "Simone" (2002) but did not get the gig. After landing the role of Gigolo Jane in Steven Spielberg's "A.I.: Artificial Intelligence" (2001), she scored the role of Asha Barlow on the edgy sci-fi fantasy series, "Dark Angel."

Born on July 13, 1977, Scott was a child model and became so enchanted with that career choice, that by her high school years, she moved to New York City to try her hand at high fashion modeling. As an international model, she walked the catwalk in fashion shows in Milan and Paris, before changing career lanes, focusing instead on acting as a career. At her first audition, she worked opposite Al Pacino for a part in the feature film, "Simone" (2002) but did not get the gig. After landing the role of Gigolo Jane in Steven Spielberg's "A.I.: Artificial Intelligence" (2001), she scored the role of Asha Barlow on the edgy sci-fi fantasy series, "Dark Angel." The writing team was enamored enough by Scott that they fashioned the character to fit her real-life personality, quickly moving her from guest star to regular character status.

Because of the large price tag per episode, the James Cameron-produced show was cancelled. Scott landed on her feet, however, nabbing a role on another sci-fi series, "Birds of Prey," a comic book spin-off about three female superheroes who join forces to protect New Gotham after Batman mysteriously vanishes. Scott played The Huntress, leader of the crime-fighting trio and daughter to Batman and his secret love, Catwoman, who takes up her father's mantel to protect the innocent and bring the city's criminals to justice. The series was cancelled after its first season, leaving the young actress to find work once again.

This time, she moved easily into the feature world, landing a small role in "S.W.A.T." (2003), before earning meatier parts in "Walking Tall" (2004) and "Into the Blue" (2005). In 2006, she returned to the small screen in the hit series, "Jericho," the story of a small town in Kansas struggling to survive and maintain order after much of America has been destroyed in a nuclear war. Scott played the ex-girlfriend of a one-time do-nothing (Skeet Ulrich) who returns home after a mysterious absence, just in time to see mushroom clouds over Denver. Though slow to start, "Jericho" gained momentum and a loyal audience throughout the fall, earning a full 22-episode order for the season.
