McTeer said the remoteness of her home meant it was easier for her to get into character and revealed she spent time learning lines for Hamlet in her peaceful surroundings.
The space gave her the chance to say her lines and get to know her characters as she walked in their shoes while preparing for a part.
Despite living in America, McTeer has professed her love of English history, telling the New York Times earlier this year how it was “one of my favorite [sic] subjects” when she was at school.
She also hailed writers Alison Weir and Booker Prize-winning author Hilary Mantel for their works on the history of England.
McTeer has also previously said how she “grew up breathing Shakespeare” and the importance of words to her in a world where human expression becomes shorter due to technology.
