“I was rushing to this audition over a lunch break… I was on a train, that I’d never been on before. I was running late and I like never look at my audition sides in public. I don’t know why, ’cause it feels private… But I was ’cause I was cramming these lines in,” she said on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

“Then I feel this tap behind me, and it’s this girl and she has all these Doc Marten bags and she’s like, ‘I’m so sorry. This is so random. I just saw that it says Emily In Paris and Mindy. I’m actually going to a fitting with Lily Collins right now, and I just, it’s so random. We haven’t cast this part yet,’” she continued.

“And I was like, oh my gosh, the universe, I don’t have to look at these lines,” she said. “It was one of those New York moments that went by so fast. I went to the audition and fast forward, I ended up getting it and I was in Paris, and I told Lily this story.”

“I was like, ‘Lily, this is so crazy. Like it was meant to be, I met this girl and she had the Doc Martens.’ And then apparently Lily told Patricia Field, our costume designer and her team. And one of the associates named Erica was like, ‘That was me on the train.’” she said. “So she came up to me during my camera test and was like, ‘Ashley, I need to tell you something. The reason that I was even looking over your shoulder and saw the sides was because I had just taken a photo of you to send to Patricia as inspiration for Mindy’s fashion in the show.’”
