More IT crowd not on the cards, Jen says

More IT crowd not on the cards, Jen says

Katherine Parkinson doesn't want to ruin 'The IT Crowd's' legacy.

The 37-year-old actress - who played Jen Barber in the cult classic sitcom - admits she is reluctant to reprise her role in the comedy, which ended last year, as the show concluded on such a high note.

Quizzed if she'd do another series, Katherine said: "We've tried before but we've all been a bit unavailable - Richard Ayoade, me, Chris O'Dowd and also [writer] Graham Linehan.

"So, never say never, and we're all friends, but at the moment it's unlikely. It was a good run and we wouldn't want to ruin that."

Katherine has swapped her BAFTA Award-winning comedy role for more serious fare as she plays Maggie Gyllenhaal's cold sister-in-law in BBC Two drama 'The Honourable Woman' and she is enjoying the change of pace.

She told Radio Times magazine: "That's certainly a departure for me. On TV we either have sitcoms or dramas. But I think the best dramas do have an element of wit. 'Breaking Bad' is the perfect example. It's a drama and it's tragic but it's hilarious at times."
