Jane Seymour

(Joyce Penelope Wilhelmina Frankenberg)
actress
Born: 2/15/1951
Birthplace: Hillingdon, England

Seymour was unable to leverage a promising start as a Bond girl in Live and Let Die (1973) into a successful film career, and turned instead to television, where she appeared in 50-odd made-for-television movies and miniseries. She landed a full-time job as Dr. Mike on Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman (1993–98), but after several years of solid support, CBS canceled the show despite a write-in campaign from viewers. The show revived her film career, however, and she provided a voice for Quest for Camelot (1998) and appeared in The New Swiss Family Robinson (1998). Films for television include Yesterday's Children (2000), Enslavement: The True Story of Fanny Kemble (2000), and Blackout (2001). She is the author of This One & That One: Cookies in the Dark (1998) and Jane Seymour's Guide to Romantic Living (1986). In 2005's hit comedy Wedding Crashers Seymour played a hot mama who tried to seduce her daughter's pursuer.
