RP / SOUTH AFRICAN (Afrikaans). Distinguished classical actress. Warm, wry, humorous authority. Oscar & Golden Globe nominee.

Janet was raised in South Africa and is the niece of staunch South African anti-apartheid activist Helen Suzman.  She has RP and South African accents and can speak Afrikaans.

She has received The Evening Standard Award for both Masha in Three Sisters, and Hester in Hello And Goodbye, as well as Academy Award and Golden Globe Nominations for her Czarina in Nicholas And Alexandra.  Her Hedda Gabler was chosen as the BBC's 50th Anniversary Classic Drama Repeat.  With such awards and nominations it is hardly surprising that she has a huge classical repertoire and background and brings unique authority to a read.  Her experience includes LAMDA and frequent periods with the RSC.  

More recently she was appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) in The Queen’s 2011 Birthday Honours list, for her services to drama.

On film she was in Max, Leon The Pig Farmer, Nuns On The Run, A Dry White Season, E La Nave Va, Greenway
's The Draughtsman's Contract, Priest Of Love with Ian McKellen, Nijinsky, Voyage Of The Damned, and The Black Windmill.  On TV she’s appeared in Front Seat, Hildegard Of Bingen, Nobody Here But Us Chickens, The War Of The Roses, Inspector Morse, Mountbatten: The Last Viceroy Of India, Denis Potter's The Singing Detective, Bright Smiler, The Zany Adventures Of Robin Hood with George Segal, The House On Garibaldi Street, and Arnold Bennet's Clayhanger.

Janet’s voice work includes innumerable documentaries such as Hitler Youth,
Hiroshima, Cleopatra, Marco Polo and The Windsors, promos for the BBC, and corporates for NKFP.  She has also voiced the Ostrich in the gorgeous animation series Tinga Tinga Tales, and narrated two of Sally Gardner’s books, The Silver Blade and The Red Necklace.

Outside of acting and voicing Janet is an accomplished director with performances including Othello (The Market Theatre,
South Africa, and a TV film for Channel 4), Feydeau (Chelsea Centre) and Death Of A Salesman (Theatr Clwyd) with Timothy West – this one winning her the Liverpool Echo & Daily Post Best Production Award.  She also has an Honorary Masters Degree from The Open University, and Honorary Doctors of Letters from the University of Warwick and the University of Leicester.
