Trivia

Running neck and neck with Patty Duke for the title of "The Queen of TV Movies".

She appeared in the music video and sang in the choir on the song "Voices That Care."

Official Spokesperson for UNICEF

International Ambassador for Childhelp USA

Honorary Chairperson for City Hearts

Children with David Flynn: Katherine Flynn (b. 1981) and Sean Flynn (b. 1986). Twin boys, John Stacy Keach and Kristopher Steven Keach (b. 1995), with James Keach.

Was named an Officer of the Order of British Empire (OBE) by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II on New Year's Eve, 1999

Jane and her husband James Keach own a 14th-century manor house outside Bath, England called St. Catherine's Court. Cunard Lines offers a four-night stay at St. Catherine's as an add-on to their Queen Elizabeth 2 cruises. (They don't say if you'll actually meet Jane or James, though.)

Measurements: 35-24-36 (Source: Celebrity Sleuth magazine)

Oldest daughter of John Frankenberg and Mieke van Trigt. She has two younger sisters, named Sally and Anne Gould.

She is the daughter of a British obstetrician and his Dutch wife. Thanks to her mother, Miss Seymour is also able to speak Dutch very well, which she once briefly demonstrated in an interview with the Dutch television.

Her house was used for recording Radiohead's "OK Computer".

Her right eye is brown and her left eye is green.

Was one of two actresses to screen test for the role of Meggie Cleary in the epic mini-series, "The Thorn Birds" (1983) (mini). The other actress was Rachel Ward, who ended up winning the part because producers thought Jane wasn't "vulnerable" enough.

Her house was used for recording The Cure's "Wild Mood Swings".

Became a U.S. Citizen on February 11, 2005; wore a cream-colored suit to ceremony at the downtown Los Angeles Convention Center. She sat between more than a dozen U.S. military personnel who also received their citizenship.

Despite her "very English" public image and name, she has no ethnic English ancestry - her father is the son of Eastern European immigrants, and her mother is Dutch.

Her twin boys were born in 1995, on November 30th. She was 44 years, 9 months, and 15 days.

Christopher Reeve is the godfather of her son Kristopher

She and James Keach's longtime friendship with June Carter Cash and Johnny Cash led to the Cashes guest-starring on Seymour's television program "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" (1993) and to Keach producing the Cash biopic Walk the Line (2005).

Also known to her Canadian fans as an accomplished portrait artist.

She turned down the role of Natalie Jastrow Henry in "War and Remembrance" (1988) (mini) three times before finally accepting it.

Had recently married her first husband, Michael Attenborough when she filmed Live and Let Die (1973). While filming it, she visited a psychic who predicted that she would be married three more times. Though the thought was a shock to her at the time, it proved to be eerily accurate.

Her mother, Mieke Frankenberg, passed away at 92 in England due to complications from a stroke [October 2, 2007]. She was in a Japanese concentration camp during World War II for three and a half years.
