Jane Seymour

Actress

2/15/1951 (70 years old) Hillingdon, England

This British beauty trained as a dancer (she was sidelined by injuries as a teenager) before becoming an actress with a long career. Although she's tackled a number of memorable movie roles---a Bond girl in Live and Let Die, an early-20th-century stage star in Somewhere in Time, a middle-aged sex kitten in Wedding Crashers---Emmy winner Seymour remains the queen of the small screen with myriad melodramatic miniseries and TV-movies on her résumé, not to mention a six-season stint as a feisty 19th-century feminist on the American western drama Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. But acting is by no means Seymour's only interest: The mother of four has published several self-help and children's books and devotes much of her time to charitable causes. She also briefly returned to dancing in 2005 when she signed on to Dancing With the Stars, a show her mother loved. Her mother passed away while Seymour was competing, but Seymour returned to the dance floor and dedicated her performance to her mother. Aside from the performing arts, Seymour has used her creativity to design clothing, bedding, furniture and jewelry. A prolific painter, Seymour has been painting since childhood and displays her work at art exhibits. Of all of her many passions, Seymour calls painting her "greatest joy."
