British actress Janet Montgomery took the stage initially as a trained dancer, but found a greater calling to acting.  She made her tv debut on the UK teenage drama “Skins” in 2008.  Soon after moving to Los Angeles, she continued to conquer tv, appearing in “Entourage”, “The League”, “Human Target”, “Made in Jersey”, “Dancing on the Edge”, and “Spies Of Warsaw”. From her initial foray in such films as “Wrong Turn 3” and “Accused at 17”, she continued to light  up the silver screen playing ballerina Madeline in the Academy Award nominee film “Black Swan”and love interest Lady Arabella in “Our Idiot Brother”.

As she dances through numerous roles, dramatic and comedic, period and contemporary, this talented actress continues to make her mark in Hollywood.
