      Equally at home on stage or on camera in both period pieces and modern dramas, actress Janet McTeer proved to be one of the more versatile actresses to cross over from the U.K. to Broadway and American film. Having made a name for herself on the stages of London and on British television, McTeer found her breakout role when she was cast as Nora in a West End revival of Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll's House" in 1996. The lauded production's move to Broadway the following year not only won the actress multiple awards, including a Tony, but also led to her being cast as the lead in the independently produced drama "Tumbleweeds" (1999), which earned her a Golden Globe. Another winning role came with the Sundance Film Festival favorite "Songcatcher" (2001), followed by turns in the Terry Gilliam-directed "Tideland" (2005) and such acclaimed miniseries as "Five Days" (BBC1, 2007) and "Into the Storm" (HBO, 2009). After earning more raves on Broadway in mountings of "Mary Stuart" and "God of Carnage," the actress stunned audiences and critics alike with her convincing portrayal of a woman posing as a man in Victorian-era London opposite Glenn Close in "Albert Nobbs" (2011). Undeniably talented and exceptionally adaptable, McTeer had rightfully earned her reputation as one of the most dependable actresses on either side of the pond. Her later work included strong performances on television series ranging from British miniseries "The White Queen" (BBC 2013) and "The Honorable Woman" (BBC 2014) to American police comedy-drama "Battle Creek" (CBS 2015) and Marvel noir "Jessica Jones" (Netflix 2015- ), showcasing her ever-increasing range.
