With Ashton, the question on everyone's mind was Mischa, and he assured everyone that she has not been recast or missed a day of work.
To see quotes from Ashton on Mischa as well as what Ashlee had to say about her character and Bronx just
- Ashlee on what Pete and her family thinks about the show: He loves it! He's happy for me. He's seen the pilot. He's like my best friend so I do tell him the storylines — I don't tell anyone else! My whole family has seen the pilot and they love it. I never really watched too much TV until I got pregnant, so I'm excited to be a part of that.
- Ashlee on the chance of Jessica guest-starring on Melrose: No, no. I mean, that would be so much fun, but I think we've mixed enough family and work, so for now we're good just being sisters.
- How Ashlee celebrated getting the part: I went to sleep at 10 with my son!
- Ashton on Mischa's role: The great thing about Mischa for this show is that she's done it before. We have a lot of young cast members and her navigation and guidance is essential for us as a unit. Mischa will be very prominent on the show. She's one of the lead characters.
