Janet McTeer, The Younger Years
9 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

If you are a fan of Janet McTeer, as am I, then this British TV series, The Governor, now on Acorn TV, is a gem of her years as a young actress in B-movies in which she steals all of the scenes. Her performance in The White Queen caught my attention and I searched IMDb for more. Through her filmography that is available on Netflix, Amazon, and Acorn, her growth into a mature actress is a wonderful thing to watch.
