Ashley Jones has been a soap opera favorite for many years. As she tackled roles such as; Megan Dennison on 'The Young and the Restless', Bridget Forrester on 'The Bold and the Beautiful' and Parker Forsyth on 'General Hospital', she quickly became a household name. Jones after leaving 'GH' made an attempt to get back into the soap world. This time auditioning for a role on the only remaining daytime sudser she has never been on, 'Days of Our Lives'. 

In a recent blog titled "Let Go, Let GOD", Jones addressed the opportunities that came her way in recent times offering her fans an update on her life and work.  "A wonderful role became available on a soap I've never been on (a network television soap, so if you do the math, it's easy to figure out)," she divulged while not giving too much away. She went on further to share, "I ended up testing with a group of amazing women, most of whom you would know if you are soap fans. For those of you that are curious about the definition of testing? The casting directors, producers and network narrow down their choices to usually two or three (in this case it was more than a handful). Then, you show up on set and shoot a scene as if it were a usual tape day. The ladies testing worked opposite one of the show's stars (not sure if I'm allowed to say who yet, so I'll refrain). I woke up at 4:30am. Did a bit of hair...put on some makeup. I had my bag and dress I wanted to wear already in the car (I later wore the same dress to the Emmy parties the following weekend). My call time was 6am in Burbank at the studios where they have taped this show for years. You rehearse, then wait, then head to makeup for touch ups, then wait, etc. Finally, you're called to set and tape the scene. Around 9am it was all over. The tapes go to all the "heads of everything." Producers, writers, network people, etc. They figure out exactly what works for them at that time. You get one shot, by the way. No re-shoots. It's a lot of build up for about 2-3 minutes of delivery."

Jones highlighted that "It was a great experience and you have to hope for the best once you walk away from your test. Any type of test. I've done this many times. Sometimes you get that job, sometimes life takes you in a "different direction." While she does love the soap word she decided to let it go and let God handle it. "Not gonna lie, it's not always easy to swallow. But, it just means I am meant to be somewhere else. Or back on a show I've been on before? Maybe. Just maybe." she shared.

Jones also discussed another opportunity that came her way. She later dished to her readers, "Something has came up for June. I have to get permission to discuss it, but it's fun and dare I say... creepy! Ha! But, know that I am hoping to be back on your screens soon enough...one way or another."
