Ashley Williams stars in "Something Borrowed," opposite Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson, as Claire.
 
Ashley Williams will next be seen in the independent film "Margin Call," which debuted at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. The film stars Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons and Zachary Quinto.

Segueing between the big and small screen, Williams most recently wrapped production on the TNT pilot "Bird Dog," a mystery about an unlikely team of cops who happen to be father and daughter. She won over audiences starring alongside Mark Feuerstein in the NBC television series "Good Morning Miami" and in the Lifetime telefilm "Montana Sky," adapted from the best-selling book by Nora Roberts. Williams also had a memorable arc on the comedy "How I Met Your Mother," which was so popular she won an online poll conducted by the production staff as to whom fans would most like to see revealed as "the mother." Her other television credits include a recurring role on the Holly Hunter series "Saving Grace," Lifetime's telefilm "The Front" and guest-starring roles on "The New Adventures of Old Christine," "Retired at 35," "Love Bites," "Monk," "Huff" and "Law & Order: SVU," to name just a few.

Williams got her start on the soap opera "As the World Turns," appearing as a series regular for six seasons.



Born in Westchester, New York, Ashley studied at Boston University's renowned School of Theatre Arts and was a member of the acting company at the prestigious Williamstown Theatre Festival at Williams College. She was an understudy for both Rachel Weisz and Gretchen Mol in Neil LaBute's off-Broadway play "The Shape of Things." At various times during the run of the play, Ashley performed both roles. She also starred alongside Wendie Malick in the off-Broadway play "Burleigh Grimes," at the Dodger Stages.
