Biography

Beautiful, erudite and seemingly ageless, British actress Jane Seymour transitioned from young ingénue to mature leading lady and dependable supporting player in over 100 film and television productions. After making her screen debut with an uncredited turn in Richard Attenborough's "Oh! What a Lovely War" (1969), Seymour found herself in high demand. She achieved instant fame as Solitaire, one of the more popular Bond Girls, opposite Roger Moore in "Live and Let Die" (1973) and solidified her status as a fanboy favorite in such genre movies as "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger" (1977). Her performance in the cult-classic "Somewhere in Time" (1980), as an early 20th-Century actress in love with a man from the future (Christopher Reeve), endeared her to scores of hopeless romantics as well. Seymour's most enduring role, however, would be that of the indomitable, pioneering 19th-Century physician, "Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman" (CBS, 1993-98), which earned the actress a Golden Globe Award. She later had fun skewering her prim onscreen persona with a hilarious turn as the mercurial cougar "Kitty Kat" Cleary in the smash comedy "Wedding Crashers" (2005). Happily married to actor-director James Keach for years, a middle-aged Seymour settled in to the successful TV movie franchise with the comedic mysteries "Dear Prudence" (Hallmark, 2008) and "Perfectly Prudence" (Hallmark, 2011). More than 40 years after beginning her career, Seymour remained as luminous and vibrant as ever, but far more adventurous than many of her peers.
