Jenny says ...
"I miss the sunshine of LA and those good friends I made during the 16 years I lived there, but that's about all I miss,"

Jenny began working as an actress when she was still a child. She got her big break playing Bobbie in the classic film, The Railway Children. She then headed for Hollywood where she was enormously successful, appearing in film after film. She even appeared in Equus alongside Spooks co-star Peter Firth. Eventually she headed back to England, where she still lives with her husband and son. As well as continuing her acting career Jenny now devotes a lot of time to campaigning for various causes and charities.
