On Tuesday, we’ll talk with Janet McTeer about her role as Jacquetta Woodville, the cunning mother of embattled Queen Elizabeth, in Starz’s historical epic miniseries “The White Queen.” Join us for our live chat on May 20 at 11:00am PT/2:00pm ET on Gold Derby’s home page.
McTeer earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best TV Supporting Actress for her performance, which is the latest in an impressive history of laurels for the actress. Her awards and nominations span television, film, and stage work.
She lost her Globe race this year to Jacqueline Bisset (“Dancing on the Edge“), but previously won in 1999 for her lead role in the film “Tumbleweeds,” for which she also earned her first Oscar nomination. She later earned Globe and Emmy bids in 2009 for her supporting role in the HBO telefilm “Into the Storm,” and picked up another set of Globe and Oscar bids in 2011 for her gender-bending performance in “Albert Nobbs.”
Her honors also include matching Olivier and Tony Awards for Best Actress in a Play in 1997 for her work on stage in Henrik Ibsen‘s classic “A Doll’s House.”
Will she return to the Emmys this year for “The White Queen”? Don’t miss our live chat tomorrow, and make your Movie/Mini Supporting Actress predictions below:
