If you want the full rundown on Ashley in Resident Evil 4, read on below to find out exactly who she is, how old she is in the remake, who plays her, and whether she appears in any other Resident Evil games or not.

Who is Ashley in Resident Evil 4?

Ashley Graham is the daughter of the president of the United States of America. She’s been kidnapped and held captive somewhere in Europe.

Ashley plays an integral role in the plot of Resident Evil 4 and in the remake, she has been upgraded over her more limited depiction in the 2005 original.

In the remake, you have more control over Ashley than you did before and she will now follow you at all times, meaning you can’t hide her away somewhere. You need to keep her safe.

Her character is more rounded out in the remake and she’s less of a damsel in distress than she was in the original game, too. She’s now more believable and serious than she ever was before – perfect for being more of a support character this time around.

How old is Ashley in Resident Evil 4?

According to documents found in game, Ashley Graham is 20 years old during the events of the Resident Evil 4 remake.

The game is set in 2004 and she was born in 1984, so some simple maths gives us our answer. Yeah, we’re surprised she’s not younger, too.

This means that she is roughly seven years younger than Leon S Kennedy, who was born in 1977.

She is, however, spotted as an Easter egg in Netflix show Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness. We get one brief glimpse of her thanks to a framed photo during the show, which is set after Resident Evil 4.

As Capcom continues to remake its classic Resi games, as well as making new ones, it will be interesting to see if Ashley ever appears again. In the meantime, check out our tips for playing the remake below.
