While Ashley has been partnered with many characters over the years, it is Davidson's chemistry with Eric Braeden's Victor that has made Ashley, Nikki Newman's lifetime rival for Victor's affections.
The role was not expected to be a long-term one, but the character soon caught the eye of business tycoon Victor Newman played by Eric Braeden.
SoapCentral.com was one of the first websites to set the record straight on rumors that Eric Braeden (who plays Victor Newman) had "pulled the plug" on his future with The Young and the Restless.
The site accurately reported that Braeden and executives at Sony were finally able to reach a deal on a new contract.
Eric Braeden left the daytime drama in late 2009 during a contract dispute.
