Janet Fielding played the Australian air stewardess Tegan from 1980 to 1983. She started working with Tom Baker and then did every Peter Davison story except his last two, one of which he ALWAYS chooses as his favorite story. Luckily Janet is not overly sensitive and is in no way hurt by Peter’s choice of a story she is not in. She does however look forward to being asked, ‘who is your favorite Doctor?’
Janet is a founder of Women in Film and Television UK which she ran for the first four years. It has been an incredibly successful campaigning organization for 25 years and its members include some of the most important women in the film and television industry.
When legendary London agent Marina Martin was ready to retire she recruited Janet to take over her eponymous agency. As an agent, Janet’s clients included Simon Callow, Rhys Ifans, Hugh Bonneville, Paul McGann, Bill Paterson and Anne Marie Duff. Janet sold the agency to the women who worked for her. In 2008, she moved to Ramsgate and started Project MotorHouse which is a charity and social enterprise that works with local deprived youth and is saving a building set into the cliffs overlooking the English Channel.
