Ashley debuted as a baby actress with her sister in the American TV sitcom Full House, which was broadcast from 1987 to 1995 and her success in the series earned her further television roles on shows such as Our Lips Are Sealed, Winning London and New York Minute, where she appeared as ‘Abby Parker’, ‘Riley’ and ‘Jane Ryan’ respectively.
In addition to her acting career, Ashley has a heart for the business. Several products, including dolls, computer games, and clothing lines for Wal-Mart, carry her and her sister’s name, but it was her love of the fashion world that led her to start fashion lines with her sister. They both founded Wal-Mart stores that spread across America and made over a hundred thousand dollars. The clothing line is sold to girls aged 4-14. Ashley also owns a cosmetics line called Mary-Kate and Ashley: Real fashion for real girls.

Is Ashley Olsen Dead?
