About Jane Seymour

Jane Seymour, a ballet buff, has risen to become one of the most respected televisions and film actresses in Hollywood and throughout the world. Jane Seymour’s name is compatible with class, style, and beauty. Movie-goers recognize her performance as the foxy vixen, ‘Solitaire’ in the quick-paced James Bond masterpiece, ‘Live and Let Die’. Her USP lies in the fact that the characters she takes are just as exciting and numinous as her magnetic personality. From performing Bond’s love interest to the quirky, stimulating Dr. Quinn in ‘Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman’, she has moved from being a simple girl with simple ballet dreams to growing the reigning queen of Television movies in the 20th century.

Although her professional life was profitable, her personal life was not that bright. She has been married four times and has suffered many personal tragedies in her family. Never one to ease off on the work head, her first publication, ‘Jane Seymour’s Guide to Romantic Living’ went on to become a global best-seller and she soon went on to publish a series of other successful children’s books. Whilst still working, she also gives a considerable amount of time to painting and also to her growing fashion empire.

Life Journey

Joyce Penelope Wilhelmina Frankenberg was born in Uxbridge, Middlesex (now section of Greater London), England, to Mieke, a nurse, and Benjamin John Frankenberg FRCOG, a prominent gynecologist, and obstetrician. Her father was Jewish, he was born in England, to a family from Nowe Trzepowo, a village in Poland.

Her mother was a Dutch Protestant (with family from Deventer) who was a defendant of war during World War II and had existed in the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia). Seymour has declared she received Dutch from her mother and her fellow orphans from the Japanese army camp, who often spent holidays together in the Netherlands when she was a kid.

Encouraged by her parents (who sent her to live with family friends in Geneva in order to practice her language skills), she also learned to speak fluent French.

Seymour’s paternal grandfather had come to live in the East End of London after leaving the Czarist pogroms when he was 14. He is noted in the 1911 census as residing in Bethnal Green working as a hairdresser and finally went on to establish his own company.

Seymour’s father Benjamin qualified at the UCL Medical School in 1938, and entered the medical branch of the RAFVR after the outbreak of war, serving in England, Belgium, Italy, and South Africa and completing his service as a group leader with a mention in despatches.

After the war, Frankenberg resumed his career at several London hospitals, including St Leonard’s Hospital, Hackney, the East End Maternity Hospital, the City of London Maternity Hospital, and finally Hillingdon Hospital, for which he created the maternity unit. A close associate of Patrick Steptoe, he served in pioneering discussions on in-vitro fertilization and also published papers on youth and teenage s*xual behaviors.

Seymour was educated at Tring Park School for the Performing Arts in Hertfordshire. She picked the screen name, Jane Seymour, after the English queen Jane Seymour, because it looked more saleable. One of Seymour’s notable characteristics is heterochromia, making her right eye brown and her left eye green.
