Sketch: Ashley Jensen

Ashley Jensen

 

BAFTA and Emmy-nominated Scottish actress Ashley Jensen found fame alongside Ricky Gervais in EXTRAS and then as Christina McKinney in the award-winning American comedy-drama UGLY BETTY or four seasons. Playing the socially inept Maggie Jacobs in the BBC Two/HBO television series EXTRAS, Ashley won the Best TV Comedy Actress and newcomer gongs at the 2005 British Comedy Awards and a BAFTA nomination. In the 2007 Christmas special she earned an Emmy nom.

After six years amongst the tinseltown glitterati, Ashley moved back to the UK, making her West End debut in Alan Ayckbourne’s A CHORUS OF DISAPPROVAL at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre in the Winter of 2012.  Returning to her roots, she played the role of  Hannah, the repressed wife in the Trevor Nunn directed revival, eleven years after her last stage appearance.

Ashley can currently be seen on the small screen in the British sitcom CATASTROPHE.
