Born in Brisbane, Janet studied journalism at the University of Queensland before moving to the UK to become an actor.
She’s best known as Tegan Jovanka, the flight attendant who wandered into the TARDIS in 1981, becoming a companion to Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor, before embarking on many adventures with Peter Davison’s Fifth Doctor.
Janet left acting to become an advocate for women in film and television, a cause she continues to champion. She also worked as a theatrical agent, including representing Paul McGann when he became the Eighth Doctor.
She has continued to play Tegan in a number of Big Finish audio dramas, and in 2022 joined Jodie Whittaker for the Thirteenth Doctor’s final adventure, “The Power of the Doctor”.
