Katherine Parkinson

Katherine Parkinson stars as Jen Barber on the popular British sitcom, “The IT Crowd,” a role which earned her a BAFTA nomination for best Female Performance in a Comedy Role in 2011. The Cambridge-born actress/writer had features roles in “The Old Guys,” “Whites,” and “Psychoville.” On the silver screen, she’s appeared in “Pirate Radio” and “Easy Virtue” opposite Colin Firth and Kristen Scott Thomas.

Pals with Katy Brand since their days at Oxford, Parkinson can be seen channeling an awkward teenage Stella McCartney and cheeky newscaster Penny.
