Jayne Ashbourne is so pretty..
14 January 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I bought this boxset of Agatha Christie thinking that Hercule Poirot is in all of the movies of Agatha Christie. I kept waiting until halfway through the movie, I gave up. But watching Jayne Ashbourne still made it worth watching. Her character here is so lovable. Anyone knows about a fan club of Jayne Ashbourne? I fell in love with her in this movie.... Anyway let me know where can I find any other details about Jayne ashbourne. I was only able to get a handful of her photos in the web and I don't think he has a facebook or twitter account...Anyone who can help me out will be much appreciated. I will be watching the second disc in the boxset tonight and I'm pretty sure I won't be disappointed.
