Accent on “nearly” - At the FACTS Comic Con in Belgium, Jenna told fans that she and Peter had nearly worked together once before. She says she probably didn’t get the role because of her inability to do a proper Scottish accent.

I’ve heard Jenna use her Scottish “voice” at many of the panels and conventions and to my American ears it sounds pretty good. But, what do I know?

P.S. I wonder what the project was that she (and all of us) missed out on? I guess we’ll never know.
