gallery The underused comedy actress

Jenny Bede should be cast as the star of an English or American movie. She may not be classed as undiscovered, but she can be identified as underused, especially considering how charismatic she is:


She was especially underused in Edgar Wright’s The World’s End. Her role was thankless. It could’ve easily been played by a mute supermodel. The role is an ideal example of what it means to be window dressing.


In an episode of Hollywood’s Best Directors, Doug Liman mentioned about casting Jennifer Aniston for Getting In, but the producers said that “She wasn’t a name, she was a nobody” before mentioning that they wanted Kristy Swanson (who had was in a couple of John Hughes movies). I hope that the same thing doesn’t happen to Jenny, but it would be easy to imagine her being dismissed as no-one or nothing.


The closest that she’s been to being in a mainstream movie is the personification of a truly thankless (silent) role in The World’s End (2013). She played a fitness trainer. It was a role that anyone (from extras to models) could have played. Edgar Wright should be ashamed of himself for not at least giving her the opportunity to reveal some facial expressions if not revel in humour-heavy dialogue.
