We are quite devastated by the death of Ashley. It feels like we have lost one of the family, probably because she joined us every evening as Leone Haines. We will miss her style and beauty, and I wish her family and friends my prayers over this difficult time. If we miss her so much having never even met her, how much greater your loss must be. Thanks for sharing her with us.
I never knew Ashley but, the woman who portrayed Leonie Haines in Isidingo really captured my heart. When I heard about the accident I felt bad, now death, it is so unbelievable, another star taken from South Africa, why, quite unfair. I wish to extend my sincere condolences to Ashley’s family, her colleagues and, loved ones. Though I did not know her personally I feel bad to know she is no more. I can imagine what they are going through. I know when I watch Isidingo I will see “Lee” still but, they will never again share a smile, laugh or chat with Ashley. May the Lord be with you through this difficult times. I loved “Lee Haines”, Ashley: May her soul rest in peace.
girl just be strong god will make a way,he always does
just found out that she left us my deepest love to her family south africa will miss her so much she could never be replaced.rest in peace ashley
I can not watch this video with sound because I know I am not going to be able to stop crying.
Ashley, you have to be one of the most beautiful woman in South Africa, inside and out. We are going to miss you so much. Every time I think about it, I just want someone to tell me that it is not true. We are in Scotland and will not be able to attend or even see your memorial on tv, but we will be thinking of your family and friends and will keep you in our hearts forever… rest in peace…
may her soul rest in peace
I have been watching Isidingo as long as i can remember.Ashley’s death has come to me as a shock. With her strength potrayed on the screen, i was confident she was going to survive the accident. I do not want to imagine how isdingo will be without her.
As fans all we can do now is to allow her soul to rest while letting her flame burn.

Love Melinda lourens
It’s not ever going to be the same watching Isidingo again, I was truly shocked when my daughter rushed to me giving me the shocking news, I refused to believe her, until I saw and heard it on the news. I adored “Lee” I am truly sad.
Hi.Im really upset this morning. They saying Ash caused the accident, they would say that now that she is not here to defend herself. This is so unfair to her. They cannot do to this.
Hi PC. Who said this? Did you read it somewhere?
I am ashleys cousin – for the record she was hit by a DRUNK 17 year old who was driving the car – he went through a red light. She did NOT cause the accident.
Do not spread such horrible lies. thank you.
I think action needs to be taken. Its spread all over the papers that Ashley was driving on the wrong side of the road, I myself cannot beleive this. Is there anything that can be done? Its terrible how they are spreading these stories and Ashley is not here to defend herself, she will never have the chance to explain what happened.
Lucinda, if you are who you claim to be, I am sorry for your pain, truly. But the circumstances are still being investigated – please, we have really made an effort in the last 12 hours to not turn this wonderful site into a place of (questionable) accusations. I am creating a seperate blog as we speak, and I hope that Pat will be happy to point people that way if the message doesn’t meet up with the description of condolensce.
Come talk to us there, ok?
I heard it on Highveld this morning…
A TRIBUTE TO ASHLEY
In Loving memory of our Dearest Ashley Callie
Sometime still loves you, Someone still cares,
Sometime still whispers your name in their prayers
though absent, you are still near and loved very dear,
You shared your life, our love, hope and tears.
Deeply mourned and forever missed by her Family, Friends, collegues adn her fans.
I still can’t believe you have gone and it is still sinking in.It is very hard watching Isidingo and seeing you and knowing you are not with us anymore.I can’t stop thing about you and i have this feeling of emptyness inside of me. It is really hard losing someone you love.( I lost both my grandparents in a short space of time recently)
Rest in peace your Beautiful Princess
Lots of love and miss you always and forever
To Ashley Callie
May your soul rest in peace.
From the Isidingo soapie you were very kind,considerate and most of all a brilliant and exceptional actress. To be honest I got a lot of dressing tips from her, If she had a specific top I would go buy something similar I still cant believe you gone,when I switch on my television set and you are still acting your role full of life my heart is so sad when i come to think of it that one day you wont be on our screens to your family we feel for your loss because Ashley Callie was the most beautiful women
from my husband rakesh and prabashinie
Ashley i didnt know you yet your death has touched me so completely i can only imagine the incredible pain your family and friends must be going through ; i was feeling so down and going through such a terrible time crying over my material losses when my sister reminded me that someone out there has just lost a sister and a daughter.Ashley may you rest peacefully amongst the angels!
Dear Callie Family
I feel like someone died in my family,I always looked up to Ashley,so pretty and a real angel,where Im sure she is right now,in the company of God and His Angels.Lots of love to Ashley,and for her family
Ashley we will miss you, its like I’ve lost a sister no one will ever replace you in Isidingo. I still don’t believe you not alive.
Great is the power of might and mind,but only LOVE can make us kind. “Lee”, i did not know you personally, but the kindness that you had inside shone through your character.
May your family be shown love in this difficult time.
Rest in peace.
I just wanna say to the deceased family, May the Almighty God Comfort you as you are passing through this tough situation.
There are no words in the dictionary which could be expressed as be comforted, However, let the Almighty God cover you (family) with his Love. The Hope that we have is that one day we shall see her when the last trumpet shall be heard. we shall really miss Her, and may her Soul rest in peace. From Rev. E.F. Phiri, JEPPESTOWN ALLIANCE CHURCH, JHB.
My heart breaks for Ashley;s family. I still cant believe she’s gone. We’ve grown to love her over the years of her acting profession.
My sincere condolences to the family.
This is truly a great loss to the whole world.
i realy adored her she was my favourite caracter on isidingo im devastated by her death i cnt believe that this happened 2 such a inspirational person although she didnt know me i was 1 of her biggest fans.asley where u r rest in peace
To the dearest Callie family,

I am deeply disturbed by Ashley’s passing, it left me in a complete state of shock, but to the family and friend i want to say that “those who trust in the Lord are like mount zion, they are neither shaked or moved” even in these current state of affairs, let us be still and trust in God.
To the Callie family:
I never thought of your beautiful daughter being no more but i guess that all the beauties belong to heaven. She was an inspiration to the most South Africans, loved by every one as Lee in Isidingo but mostly “I LOVED HER WHEN SHE WAS INVOLVED WITH RAJESH”. She definately will never be forgotten & may her beautiful soul rest in peace. LOVE U ALWAYZ ASHLEY!!
God has given and he has taken you away from us, but it is not fair because we would have loved to be with you a bit longer. i used to love the character she was playing and wanted to meet with her one day i wish God would have granted me that wish, but she is no more. all to her friends and family as south africans we are all grieving. girl MAY YOUR SOUL REST IN PEACE. to her family never loose hope because our God is a wonderful God.
God has given us Ashley but he has taken her, to all Ashley’s family God does not forsake u.May her soul rest in peace
We will miss you, what will Isidingo be without you, you were the reason we watched! God bless.
God has rightfully reclaimed you back and who are we to question his decision. You will be solely missed but never forgotten.
We will miss U!!! We will meet again soon!
I never had the pleasure of meeting Ashley in person, but having watched her for so many years, everyday, she became an old & welcome friend. The loss is felt the same, like that of an old & very dear friend. I have cried more tears since her accident, than even I expected to. Didn’t realise just how deeply you’d touched my life, Ashley, till you weren’t there anymore. How amazing you were, making such a loving & lasting impression on so very many people & most of them, like me, never having met you. You really were an angel, just on loan to us, to teach us all something. May your memory live on for ever! Rest in peace, Ashley.
Its sad that we wont be seeing ashley any more, she was such a good actress..and it seems she was also a great person. To her family, friends and everyone who knew her I am really sorry for your loss…isidingo will not be the same again…..
YAH WE HAVE REALLY LOST AN ANGEL!!!
I was so shocked to hear about Ashley’s death,I’ve been a fan of Isidingo eversince it started,and Ashley was my favourate! Imagine I’m Tanzania but it’s as if I knew her, she was part of me through TV. may our dear GOD rest her soul in eternal peace ,until we meet again AMEN!
My condolences to the family who are going through a very difficult time,Fans and the Isidingo family God will all see you through! you’ve really been a family! Stay blessed always!
