Originally a ballet dancer, Jane Seymour made a small splash as Roger Moore's virginal tarot-telling girlfriend in the 1973 James Bond film Live and Let Die. Afterwards she built a career as a soft-focus romantic actress until her surprising success as a plucky frontier doc in the hit TV series Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman (1993-98).

Extra credit:

Yes, Jane Seymour was also the name of Henry VIII's third wife. The two Janes are unrelated... Seymour married the actor and director James Keach in 1993; he is the brother of actor Stacy Keach.
