Ashley Graham (The Resident Evil character, not the Supermodel) is one of the most unique female characters in Resident Evil. The Whole RE lore has strong female characters. Jill Valentine, Claire Redfield, Ada Wong, Rebecca Chambers, and Sheva Alomar are all able to survive a Zombie Apocalypse on their own.
However, Ashley is the spoiled and sheltered Presidential daughter because of that she is more fragile. She is a complete damsel in distress who needs someone to rescue her. Sherry Birkin, who was a little girl, is more competent than her.
She is the first pure Damsel in Distress in the whole series. She needs Leon Kennedy to save her from the Ganados. Villagers who succumbed to an old mind-controlling parasite. Resident Evil 4 is an Action-horror escort mission where the player has to protect her at all costs. If Ashley dies, it’s game over.
Japan-based Instagram Model Ella Freya confirmed that she would be the new face of Ashley Graham in the Resident Evil 4 remake.

In the Original Resident Evil 4, Ashley got portrayed by the Model Brooke Elizabeth Mathieson.
Leon Kennedy was played by fashion model Christian Duerre. He was a fan favorite but never returned.
Christian and Brooke both appeared in the Nintendo Wii commercial for Resident Evil 4.
If Capcom goes with consistency Leon Kennedy and Ada Wong’s Model from Resident Evil 2: Remake will reprise their roles, but there is a chance of recasting. The Models teased from the Trailer look like Adriana and Eduard Badaluta.
Carolyn Lawrence, who voiced Sandy Cheeks from SpongeBob Squarepants, was Ashley’s original voice actress.
Capcom stopped hiring actors and models who joined the Union, so with that, a new voice actress might be voicing Ashley. Ashley Graham’s personality might get some tweaking in the remake, and try to make her less annoying because she was a liability in the original. There are fans who wants Paul Mercer or Matt Mercer to voice Leon but they are not returning. Nick Apostolides who voiced Leon Kennedy in Resident Evil 2 will reprise his role.
