period actress


Senior Member
Hi all,
in the following sentence referred to Gwyneth Paltrow:

"She gets the joke, she's in on the joke, she can make the joke, she's not
someone who's just a period actress, she's not just a corseted girl. She has a lot of range"

Does "period actress" mean "attrice che recita in costume"?

Thanks for your help
