Ashley Park, the star of Emily in Paris, gave us a sneak peek of her new role in the third season of Only Murders in the Building and we’re all ears! Unfortunately, she didn’t spill all the tea but what she did say has got us buzzing. According to the actress, her character is a cheeky nod to her roots in the acting business.

"I don't think I'm allowed to say yet, but what I will say, if people know my roots of where I came from, they'll be happy in terms of how I started in this business," Park teased during an interview with ET's Denny Directo at the premiere of her latest film, Joy Ride. We can only imagine what kind of mischief her character will get up to. And with a cast that includes Meryl Streep, Jesse Williams and more, it’s sure to be a laugh riot! "I think what you can expect from season 3, is it's like, that cast with legends, and just the most gracious people," she added. "I laughed so much on that set as well."

Her new movie, Joy Ride, follows four friends who embark on an international adventure. They're a ragtag bunch consisting of Ashley, her childhood best friend, a Chinese soap star, and an eccentric cousin. And things get wild! "I think there are attributes to all of us that are very responsible but we're not -- we're multidimensional," Park explained. "So, we're responsible in some ways but not in others." Sounds like a whole lot of fun, doesn’t it? We're sure Park will add her own unique flair and humor to the film, just like she did in Emily in Paris.

And when it comes to premiering Joy Ride, Ashley was over the moon with excitement. "It's honestly so surreal, but it also feels like, so cheesy, but very real at the same time, mostly because I'm grounded in these people that I've created this with,” she said. "And I think we're so excited to genuinely share. There's so much love and joy that went into it." We can totally relate to the joy of sharing something you've created with the world. We can’t wait to see Ashley Park and her new projects - Joy Ride and Only Murders in the Building - in all their glory!
