In the newest installment of Underrated Beauty, Ashley Madekwe is the subject! Ashley made her official US debut in 2009 as a model on The Beautiful Life, which I thought was great, but was cancelled after a few episodes. In 2011, she was cast as Ashley Davenport on the ABC drama series Revenge.
Before coming to the US, Ashley was born in London, England and attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London where she gained a BA in acting. During her time at school, she appeared in numerous stage productions including King Henry V as Princess Katherine. So not only is Madekwe an underrated beauty, she is also a well-educated, wonderful, English actress.
