Jackie Burroughs

Jackie Burroughs (1939–2010) was a Canadian stage, film, and television actor. She appeared as Mrs. Amelia Evans in Sullivan Entertainment’s miniseries Anne of Green Gables (1985), but she is best known for portraying the indomitable Hetty King in seventy-seven episodes of the Sullivan Entertainment long-form television series Road to Avonlea (1990–1996), a role she reprised in the telefilm Happy Christmas, Miss King (1998), later retitled An Avonlea Christmas. She also narrated extracts from L.M. Montgomery’s journals in two documentaries: Terence Macartney-Filgate’s Lucy Maud Montgomery: The Road to Green Gables (1975) and Barbara Doran’s Life and Times: The Many Mauds (1996).
