Ashley animated over film projects

Ashley Jensen says she's pleased to be in two animated films - as some of her other work is unsuitable to show her son.

The Extras actress voices parts in forthcoming animations Gnomeo And Juliet, Arthur Christmas, which is due out next Christmas, and Pirates with Hugh Laurie.

She will also be seen on screen opposite Maggie Gyllenhaal in Hysteria, a film about the invention of the vibrator.

Ashely said: "I'd always wanted to do an animated film, in fact I'm doing three, I've got a tiny wee part in a thing called Pirates, that's with Hugh Laurie. It's good - I'm able to do these things as they'll be things I can show my son, as he'll not be watching the vibrator film."

Of Gnomeo And Juliet, she said: "It has a great cast - Michael Caine, Emily Blunt, Maggie Smith are all in it, but I didn't see anyone when I went in to record my bits."
