Nanette from "Gnomeo and Nanette" is a character in the animated film. Nanette ("Gnomeo and Nanette) is voiced by actress Ashley Jensen.

Gnomeo and Juliet's quest for true love is aided by Juliet's best-friend, the romance-obsessed frog Nanette, voiced by the incomparable Ashley Jensen ("Extras"). "Ashley brought her Scottish accent to this part," says director Kelly Asbury. "She gave Nanette that sort of love-struck, hopeless romantic quality."

It seems Jensen gave Nanette something else. "The first image that I saw of myself I thought, 'That's amazing. That's great,' says Jensen. "But then the next time I went in, they said, 'We've kind of gone this way with it.' They had made me more feminine with lovely long lashes and voluptuous lips and they had definitely made my mouth bigger because—well because I have quite a big mouth."

Says co-producer Igor Khait, who worked hand-in-hand with the animation team, "Nanette has some of the funniest, subtle, scene-stealing moments. Watch her in the background of the sequence when Gnomeo sneaks in to visit Juliet in the Red Garden and is almost discovered by Lord Redbrick. It's one of the best examples of ensemble acting in the movie!"
