According to Jensen, she was used to getting around just by walking, having lived in Scotland and London prior to moving to the Unites States to star in Ugly Betty
. She said, “I'm used to walking everywhere but you just can't do that in LA - everyone drives. "On one occasion when I did stride out, a guy in a Porsche pulled up. I was quite flattered - until I discovered he thought I was a hooker."
Jensen, a 37-year old Scottish actress, got her training at the Queen Margaret University. She landed her first break on the BBC comedy series May to December
. Following this, she acquired numerous acting projects such as East Enders, Eleventh Hour, Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story, Friday Night Project
, where she received the best television comedy actress and newcomer awards at the 2005 British Comedy Awards.
On Ugly Betty
