      Although primarily known to American audiences as seamstress Christina McKinney on the hit comedy series "Ugly Betty" (ABC, 2006-2010), actress Ashley Jensen had long reached prior notoriety in the UK on screens both large and small. Honing her craft on the stages of London and Scotland, the versatile actress made a name for herself on British TV projects, such as the comedies "May to December" (BBC, 1989-1994) and "Bad Boys" (BBC, 1995-96). Jensen also landed feature film roles, first in Mike Leigh's "Topsy-Turvy" (1999) and later alongside comedic actor Steve Coogan in "Tristram Shandy: A Cock & Bull Story" (2005). She made substantial inroads with U.S. audiences on the Ricky Gervais cable comedy "Extras" (BBC/HBO, 2005-07), in which she played a socially awkward, man-hungry aspiring actress to riotous perfection. Her major stateside breakthrough came with three seasons of "Ugly Betty," followed by more appearances in the UK, as well voice work in the hit animated family adventure, "How to Train Your Dragon" (2010). A true double threat, equally adept in the genres of comedy and drama, Jensen continued to enjoy success on both sides of the Atlantic in roles ranging from ditzy best friend to leading lady.
