About Janet McTeer
Janet McTeer was born in Newcastle in England. She began her onstage career after graduating from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. She went on to appear for on-camera productions in the middle of the 1980’s with several television shows such as “Gems”, “Theatre Night”, and “Juliet Bravo”. Over the years, Janet has performed in many other TV shows like “The Amazing Mrs. Pritchard”, “Jackanory”, “Hunter”, “Sense and Sensibility”, “Psychoville”, and “Into the Storm”. Janet was already beginning to make a name. Her wealth was also growing with her rising popularity and a growing demand to cast her. She started receiving film invitations and picked a few productions to appear. Janet made her movie debut in “Half Moon Street”.
Since then, Janet’s wealth has come from multiple sources, as she has moved between theater, television and film projects. The films where she has acted include “Wuthering Heights”, “Hawks”, “Saint-Ex”, “Carrington”, “Albert Nobbs”, “As You Like It”, and “Tumbleweeds”. She got the Golden Globe awards for Tumbleweeds, and also for Albert Nobbs. McTeer also received the SAG award for Albert Nobbs. She has also received the Oscar nomination for Albert Nobbs (best supporting actress category). Janet has received the Tony award nomination too for her performance in Mary Stuart.
Interestingly, Janet McTeer wasn’t that well known in the US in her early years of acting. But all that has now changed with the string of nominations and awards.
