As an adept actress and writer, Jessica Hynes has worked in film, television, and theatre. At the age of 15, Hynes was accepted into the National Youth Theatre, where she made her first stage appearance, in Lionel Bart's "Blitz." Hynes and her costar, Katy Carmichael, with whom she'd later team up for "Spaced," performed together as comedy duo "The Liz Hurleys." In 1996, Hynes appeared in the television drama "Staying Alive" and a number of sketch shows with a brief shelf life, including "Asylum." Although it may have had a short run, it was "Asylum" that brought the notable "Spaced" cast together for the first time: Hynes, Edgar Wright, and Simon Pegg. In 1999, Hynes co-wrote and starred in "Spaced," the project for which she is most recognized and acknowledged. She would later rejoin "Spaced" friends and co-stars Pegg and Wright for the zombie comedy "Shaun of the Dead." Hynes also appears in the films "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason" and "Magicians," with David Mitchell and Robert Webb, and has a voice credit in "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix." Going back to her theatrical roots, Hynes earned a Tony nomination for her Broadway debut, in 2009's "The Norman Conquests." Subsequently, she was featured in the ensemble comedy series "Twenty Twelve," which focuses on the preparations for the 2012 Olympics in London.
