You know Jane Seymour from the James Bond film Live and Let Die and her long-running TV series Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, but there is much more to her than you ever imagined.
She explains why making a difference in the lives of others means so much to her and how her mother, who spent more than 3 years as a prisoner in a Japanese concentration camp during World War II, also encouraged her to keep her heart open during life’s harder times. Jane tells Growing Bolder how those conversations with her mother inspired her first open heart art piece, which later led to the now famous necklaces and, most importantly, the Open Hearts Foundation.
You may also be surprised to learn about the trials Jane herself has survived, including three brushes with death. She reveals how she survived but what she learned about what’s really important in life.
The 65-year-old actress also talks to Growing Bolder about surviving in her ageist industry and why she made the “controversial” decision to not do anything to her face, which has allowed her to actually portray women her own age. She explains why she values authenticity above nearly everything else in life and how she encourages her children and grandchildren to be authentic.
