the character .
PLAY BY: JESSY SCHRAM
name: Ella (Ashley Boyd) age: 21 ( 19 ) birthdate: month, date, year kingdom of birth: Cendrillion species: human, sorcerer, mermaid, etc occupation: ( Princess ) & storybrooke: Waitress/Teacher Mummy and me classes affiliation: good sexual orientation: Straight powers: if your character has magical abilities – explain what they are here.
height/weight/body: Ashley is of average height, and, doesn't really make herself look any differently by wearing those heels or any other things like that. Ashley is of average weight as well, but, at times she is underweight, especially before meeting Thomas due to how she'd been when living with her step-family.
hair: Her hair is a light blonde colour, which she got from her mother. Back in the Forest, she normally had it out, and, sitting on her shoulders, held back out of her eyes. Now being in Storybrooke, she normally favours a ponytail to hold it back.
eyes: Her eyes are a dark brown colour. They are small, and, slightly round shaped. They line up well with her face, and, stand out as a good feature.
distinguishing features: N/A
style: As Ella, she was once forced to wear rags as a way to allow her step-family to own her, and, make her just the maid. After the deal with Rumplestiltskin Ella started to dress the way a princess should with ball gowns and all the stuff that came with the title. When she became Ashley, suddenly she'd gone back to rags. After having her daughter, Ashley went to a more casual style.
trying to be a mother:
At first Ashley thought she'd never had any thought that she could take care of her baby, and, be the mother it deserved. After making the decision to keep her daughter, Ashley stepped up, and, did everything in her power to be the best mum she could be.
knowing what she wants:
While Ashley isn't able to stand up for herself alot of the time, she at least knows what she wants in her life. She'd gone by some desperate measures to get them, but, she's known what she wanted when she did it.
Despite her naivety, one thing she has is will power when it comes to certain things. When she makes a decision she has the will to go through with those things, especially when it came to the actions needed to be able to keep her baby. They may have been dramatic, but, she had kept up the will power to complete the actions needed.
Alex and Sean:
The only real family she's had since her father's death, Ashley will do anything to keep them protected and with her. Back in the Forest, she already lost Thomas once thanks to Rumplestiltskin, and, almost lost her daughter because of him too. But, now that she has both of them back, she would do anything for them.
Being as young as she is, Ella is naive, as both Ella and Ashley. She is just desperate for certain things, and, makes some mistakes and gut decisions. Her biggest moments of naivety is when she met Rumplestiltskin, and, made that deal with him. As Ashley, she was still just as naive, but, alot more in a fragile teen mum kind of way. It isn't as obvious anymore, but, it's still there inside her.
Unable to stand up for herself:
While she knows what she wants, she has trouble standing up for herself and finding a way to get it. Due to her young age, and, her vulnerability she struggles to defend herself, and, get her freedom. Her gut tells her to do it, but, she's unable to find the strength to face all of them.
Due to being in rags for most of her life, Ella is excited to know that she doesn't have to go back to them again. The whole look of the ballgowns and the way she feels when she's in them makes her feel happy, and, reminds her that the life she had as a maid is over.
Ever since she was a child Ella had enjoyed watching the fireworks from her home, with the view of the palace. Something had always told her that it was the sign that something special was going on at the palace. Ella kept hoping one day something special could happen to her. When she got married to Thomas, suddenly the fireworks were for her, and, she took herself outside to watch them up close.
This is one thing that Ella didn't have for most of her life, until she met Thomas. Being a royal princess, Ella got the ability to make choices, and, was allowed to make some for other people, but, she doesn't like doing that though. When she became Ashley, her choices became limited until she made the decision to stand up for herself and keep her child. She just enjoyed the feeling of having a freedom and choice.
Ashley has a dislike for her step-family due to everything they'd done to her. Ever since her father's death, her step-family had treated her like a slave in her father's own house. All she'd wanted was a mother, and, sisters, but, they didn't seem to want that.
No-one believing in her:
One thing she really hates is people not believing she can do anything. She may be young, but, she did have the ability to do things others would only dream of. The biggest one being that she didn't have what it takes to be a mother, a part of her at first believed that they were right, but, then she became determined to prove them wrong.
after everything her step-family had put her through, Ella has a strong dislike for cleaning. She didn't want to have to do anymore if she could help it, since she had had enough of it to last her a life-time. When the curse made her a maid once again, Ashley somehow felt like there was a reason she disliked it so much, and, why she worried so much about messing things up.
icing on the cake .
worst fear: Losing Thomas and Alexandra again. deepest secret: Ashley wants to see her step-family again. deepest desire: She wants to see her family happy special skills: None
overall personality .
As Ella, she has a like for ball-gowns and fireworks, since they indicated something special, and, the ball-gowns showed that anyone can be special and beautiful if you wear them, and, she was just someone who wanted to feel that way. But, Ella eventually develops a dislike for cleaning, due to the years of being forced to do all the cleaning for her step-family.
Her step-mother had raised her to think that young girls and children should never have or be allowed choices, so, for most of her childhood, she had been forced to only do what her step-mother and step-sisters told her to do. When she met Thomas, she had been surprised to know that choices were actually available, and, she now had some of her own.
When she learnt she was pregnant, she had become nervous because she didn't know if she had what it took to be a mother, and, no-one else seemed to belive in her either, leading to more self-doubt, before a determination kicked in to prove everyone wrong.
Due to her young age, she is quite naive when it comes to certain things in her life. She doesn't really have much of a talent for standing up for herself, which makes life hard for her sometimes. One of her biggest weaknesses though is the family she now has with Alex and Sean.

Before the Curse
Cinderella was born in a happy family with her mother and her father, but, things started to go downhill when her mother died, and, her father married someone else. While she was still paid attention to while he was alive, Ella was hated by her step-mother and two step sister Anastasia and Drizella.
After her father died, Ella was forced to become a servant and maid to her step-family doing the chores and house-work in the house that was once hers and her father's.
While doing work one day, Ella met some strange little mice by the names of Jaq and Gus. They treated her with a kindness that she wasn't expecting, and, hadn't been shown in a long time. That was the part that surprised her, not so much the talking thing.
"I'll give you whatever you want. Just get me out of here"
Soon news spread around the kingdom of a ball being hosted by the prince Thomas, and, her step-family became quite excited for it, but, her step-mother forbade Ella from going to it, since she had work to do before midnight.
After finishing most of the chores, and, sweeping in the backyard. She made a wish that she could go to the ball. Almost instantly a fairy god-mother appeared in front of her to grant that wish, unfortunately that didn't last long, and, she was met by Rumplestiltskin instead.
Ella was confused by who he was, and, where her fairy god-mother had gone. After admitting he killed her, Rumple introduced himself to her, and, offered to give her what she wished for, in exchange for something later on. Ella was both desperate and naive, and, she agreed to give him whatever he wanted if he would just get her out of there.
After signing the contract, she was offered, Rumplestiltskin changed her clothes for her, and, sent her to the ball hurriedly since the magic had a time limit. Ella became excited as she hopped into her carriage and headed to the castle of the prince.
"Every year when I was growing up I used to watch these fireworks from afar, and, I knew what they meant. Something special was happening at the palace. Now they're for me"
Almost as soon as she stepped in there, Ella was sighted by the prince, and, she introduced herself to him before the two of them began to dance. Ella hears the clock strike, and, she goes to rush out, before the prince asks her to stay with him, and they later end up engaged.
But, this is where her happy story ends.
When their wedding ball arrives, Ella and Thomas are delighted to welcome everyone, but, Ella is surprised by an unexpected guest. Rumplestiltskin was back. Ella wondered what exactly he wanted from her as a payment for their deal, and, she is shocked to learn that he wants her unborn child.
Teaming up with Thomas, Snow and Charming, Ella finds a way to stop Rumplestiltskin before he can get her child by tricking him and paralyzing him, but, not before he poofs away Thomas until Ella gives him her child. But, Ella refusing to give up, she's not losing either of them.
During the Curse
When the curse is cast, Ella has become Ashley Boyd, a waitress at Granny's Diner who is pregnant at 19 years old. After her boyfriend Sean Herman is banned from seeing her by his father, and, he is unable to stand up to him. Ashley realises she is all alone with this baby. Unsure she can give the baby the life it deserves, Ashley makes a deal with Mr. Gold to sell him her baby and allow him to make sure it gets a good home.
"No-one thinks I can do this. No-one think I can do anything. Maybe they're right."
After Emma arrives in town however, Ashley is inspired by her and changes her mind about the baby, deciding she wants to keep it, and, breaks into Gold's shop to recover the contract, spraying him with pepper spray as she leaves.
Knowing that someone would possibly come after her for breaking in, Ashley asks her friend and co-worker Ruby to borrow her car so that she can escape to Boston and start a new life with her child.
Just before she got to the town-line though, Ashley felt her water break, and, she pulled over as quick as she could, and, climbed out sitting on the ground, hoping someone would show up soon.
Luckily Emma and Henry showed up, allowing her to be able to get to the hospital and have her child. After the child was born Ashley becomes worried about Gold coming back to get the baby.
"A perfect fit"
Alexandra and Sean
Ashley just sat there, holding her daughter as Emma came back into her hospital room. Hearing that she was allowed to keep her baby, Ashley smiled softly, and, thanked her for everything.
Looking up at the door, Ashley smiled as she saw Sean walk into the room. Ashley is confused, but, happy when Sean says he finally stood up to his father. Ashley showed him their daughter, and, she is amused when Sean brought Alex a pair of shoes that happen to fit perfectly.
After the baby's born, Ashley is desperate for some time by herself, so she goes out with Mary Margaret and Ruby for a night out, while Granny babysits Alex. However, she isn't happy because Sean spends all of his time working instead of with her and Alex.
Later on in the night however, Ashley is surprised by Sean who turns up at the Rabbit Hole, and, proposes. Happily she says yes, and, the two of them drive off for a romantic night.
