Jenny, Trustee and Patron of Born Free, was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and is an English actress.  She rose to fame playing the lead in a TV dramatisation of Barbara Taylor Bradford's A Woman of Substance and the 1983 film Local Hero. She memorably portrayed the character of Jo Mills in the long-running BBC drama series Judge John Deed (2001-07).

Jenny first became involved with Born Free in 1996 with the rescue of two tigers from a squalid zoo in Belgium and from that point her passion and clarity have made her a committed supporter of various campaigns.

Jenny fronted Born Free's high-profile media campaign with GMTV and the Sunday Mirror to rescue three lions from long-term captivity in a beast wagon in a French circus, and transport them to Shamwari Wildlife Reserve in South Africa. She said at the time: “I dream that one day there will be no zoos or circuses, that people will be enlightened and cruelty a thing of the past.”
