Jane Seymour likes to go through the marriage box. The proof: she has been married four times. From 1971 to 1973, she was the wife of director Michael Attenborough. From 1977 to 1978, she was married to Geoffrey Planer. In 1981, the interpreter of Michaela Quinn (aka Dr Quinn) married David Flynn with whom she had two children: Katherine, born in 1982, and Sean, born in 1986. This marriage, presented as a fairy tale in the press of the time, ended after 10 years. David Flynn was a real estate agent, far from Hollywood and show business. In an interview, he explained that he had not taken all the pressure from the community.
The couple saw each other little because Jane Seymour was often on the sets. And since David Flynn, rather shy, did not feel comfortable in front of photographers and cameras, he carefully avoided all the social events to which his wife was invited. In 1992, they opted for divorce. Their separation made the headlines of the time because the couple had a lot of animosity, especially regarding the custody of their two children. Water has since flowed under the bridges, and they seem to have reconciled: the actress remarried in 1993 with actor James Keach, they had two children, twins, John and Christopher, born in 1995. A beautiful and long story, which was punctuated by a 2013 divorce.
What movies did Jane Seymour play in?

But she is most famous for her role in the cult series Dr Quinn, woman doctor, from 1993 to 1998, which made her a star!
