Comments from Sally Knyvette
Sally Knyvette, the actor who portrayed Jenna, commented on her character's relationship with Avon:
Well... they were two strong, bright people with different values. There was also a little bit of sparring, but it could have been taken much further. I mean, Avon and Jenna really didn't like each other much most of the time, so you could have a really good set-to and a break-up of some sort. I would love to do that. Avon is out for himself, while Jenna is much more of Blake's persuasion. She is out to help people, but she's got a tough, ruthless side, as we've discovered. She would always look after herself, when push came to shove.
Fan Reception and Popularity
