Out Actress Ashleigh Sumner Arrives in “And Then Came Lola”: Autostraddle Interview
Ashleigh Sumner is the adorable, every-girl star of the sexy lesbian romantic comedy, And Then Came Lola. Jess chats with her about her first on-camera sex scenes, seeing herself on the big screen, LA vs. San Francisco, gays & superheroes, and her artwork.
Out lesbian actress Ashleigh Sumner is mega-hot and stars as the title character in the new free-wheelin’ lesbian romantic comedy And Then Came Lola alongside Jill Bennett & Cathy DeBuono. This isn’t just another coming out story, it’s a funny guilty pleasure indie flick set in the super gay-ed up streets of San Francisco. And this time, writer/directors of the film went out of their way to cast lead actresses who were all openly gay — amazing, right?
Seriously, just look at that poster. You know you want to go to there. Well, guess what — the movie was just released on DVD so you can order that puppy right now! Along with San Francisco, the music in the film is a character unto itself, with songs by Jennifer Corday and Jessy Moss creating an energy that doesn’t let up as Lola runs, bikes and stumbles her way all over the city.
I chatted with Ashleigh about seeing herself on the big screen for the first time, performing her first on-camera sex scenes, gay life in LA versus San Francisco, superheroes, and her other world as a talented painter at sumnerartstudio.com.
