Trivia and Quotes

  • Fantastic comic timing and a natural performer, Ashley brings typical British humour to the show Ugly Betty.

    One of the stand out performers in Extras and Ugly Betty has been Ashley Jensen. She brings with her a light hearted comedic approach to acting and has excellent comic timing.

    It's all the little things Ashley does that make her a great performer - whether it's the delivery of a line or the reactions to others, I'm always entertained.

    Standout moments for me have been in Extras when Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe guest starred (and tried to hit on her) and in Ugly Betty when the staff went to a medieval themed restaurant.

    Whatever the character, Ashely brings a unique portrayal and fun aspect to it.moreless
  • Wonderful actress, lovely person.

    Just seen Ashley in her lead role in "Extras" written by Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant, and she easily held her own against guest star Ben Stiller, and may prove to be the best performer in it, (although the marvellous script helps!)

    Also, ironically, worked as an extra on Ashley's new show "Eleventh Hour" co starring Patrick Stewart, and from what I've seen is equally good in that.

    Got to chat to her and her lovely dog a fair few times as well and she's decidely unstarry, charming, funny, and I fell just a little bit in love.moreless
