Don't Leave Me This Way

English actress Janet McTeer got interested in acting at age 16 after seeing a production of She Stoops to Conquer at the York Theater, where she worked as a waitress. Gary Oldman, whom she once served coffee to, urged her to apply at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), where he had just finished studying. She then applied at RADA and graduated before becoming an associate member. She then joined the Royal Exchange Theatre.

She later landed more substantial roles on Les Girls, Portrait of a Marriage, The Governor, The Amazing Mrs Pritchard, Damages, Parade’s End, The White Queen, The Honourable Woman, Battle Creek, Ozark and Jessica Jones. On the big screen, she is credited for her work in Tumbleweeds, which earned her numerous awards, Songcatcher, Tideland, Albert Nobbs and Hannah Arendt, just to name a few.
