Soap opera legend, Ashely Jones, who is known for her notable roles in The Bold and The Beautiful and General Hospital, stars in Lifetime’s thriller film, Homekilling Queen.
In the movie, Jones takes on the role of Connie Manning whose daughter is willing to do anything just to be crowned as the homecoming queen. In an interview, Jones said her character in the new movie isn’t “evil by any means” and that her main objective is “to keep her likable.”
She added, Connie is “smart, efficient and always get what she wants — at any cost. This time, things get out of hand and she questions her choices in life-related to her daughter.”
B&B Star Talks About Her Movie Role
What Jones like about the film is that it is multigenerational. Her on-screen daughter Whitney Manning (Kaitlyn Bernard) will stop at nothing to get the crown. She may even have murdered her major rival Natasha Hart (Kayleigh Shikanai) to get what she wants. Unfortunately, Whitney’s attitude is greatly affected by the environment where she grew up and the people she’s with, her mother and grandmother. She was raised in a home where winning is everything.
Jones played Parker Forsyth in General Hospital for 20 episodes. She said Lexi Ainsworth is doing an amazing job as Kristina. There has been a Parker reference a while back, but she has not heard anything from the show yet. She’s definitely willing to go back if there’s more to tell about the character.
