Karen is a German sibling. She’s currently at drama school and the mere presence of the camera galvanises her into a frenzy of performing. She overacts, she wangles all her best jokes and characters into the programme and she irritates Dawn and bemuses Ian.
Karen is so intent on turning the Joneses docu into a showreel for herself, even down to telling Michael J Knight angles and light readings. she displays a thoughtless selfishness rare amongst the acting community.
Only at the end does it sink in that her dad’s not her dad and she weeps gratingly. Dawn and Ian think it’s another tedious performance and up sticks.
