About Jane Seymour 

Jane Seymour is a British-American actress, entrepreneur, and novelist whose real name is Joyce Penelope Wilhelmina Frankenberg.

Jane Seymour was born on February 15, 1951, in Hayes, Hillingdon, England. She is most popular for her appearances on television shows.

She is of Polish (father) and Dutch (mother) ancestry. When she first began in show business, she went by the stage name Jane Seymour, which was simpler for people to remember (and also the name of one of King Henry VIII's wives). After appearing as an uncredited extra in the 1969 musical comedy-drama 'Oh! What A Lovely War', Seymour quickly advanced to leading roles in film and television. She rose to popularity after starring in the television show 'The Onedin Line' (1972-1973) and as a psychic Bond girl in 'Live And Let Die' (1973), a famous James Bond movie.

Her parents were Mieke van Tricht, a nurse, and Benjamin John Frankenberg, a prominent gynecologist and obstetrician. Her father was Jewish. He was born in London to a family from the Polish hamlet of Nowe Trzepowo. Her mother was a Protestant Dutchwoman from Deventer who had been a refugee during World War II and had resided in the Dutch East Indies. Seymour has indicated that she learned Dutch through her mother and fellow Japanese concentration camp survivors, with whom she spent many holidays as a kid in the Netherlands.

Seymour went to Tring Park School for the Performing Arts in Hertfordshire, where she acquired her education.

Jane Seymour has had four marriages and divorces. Her first marriage, from 1971-1973, was to Michael Attenborough, the son of movie director and writer Richard Attenborough. From 1977-1978, she was married to Geoffrey Planer, a friend of Attenborough's. 

Seymour then married David Flynn in 1981. Katherine Flynn, a former actress who is now a cyber security entrepreneur, and Sean Flynn are the couple's children. David Flynn had brought her into the housing market, which had left her totally insolvent. In 1992, they divorced.

Career And Professional Highlights

Jane Seymour made her feature film debut in the 1970 military drama 'The Only Way.' She portrayed Lillian Stein, a Jewish woman fleeing Nazi persecution. In 1973, she landed her first significant television character as Emma Callon in the popular '70s series 'The Onedin Line'. In 1980, Seymour was cast as the teenage stage performer Elise McKenna in the historical drama 'Somewhere In Time'. Despite the fact that the picture was shot on a shoestring budget, Seymour was drawn to the role since it featured a personality she felt she knew. The project departed from her previous work, and it marked the beginning of her association with co-star Christopher Reeve.

However, actress Jane Seymour has built a reputation for herself in a variety of different fields. Since 1973, when she played a Bond girl in 'Live And Let Die' at just 22 years old, she has been a versatile performer and has risen to worldwide prominence. But she's much more than simply a performer. Jane Seymour has made a name for herself outside of Hollywood, notably as a spokeswoman for a skincare company named Crepe Erase. Her website, janeseymour.com, features her novels, fine art, and festival ballet, which she learned at London's Arts Educational School.
