Jane Seymour Is Mad That Producers Won’t Let Her Play Her Character At Age 25 In A Miniseries

November 18, 2020 / Posted by:

A great travesty has occurred on the set of the Medieval Times themed miniseries Glow and Darkness! The ageless queen of stage and screen, Jane Seymour, has been replaced with a younger actress! According to Entertainment Tonight, producers pulled a last minute switcheroo when they told Jane they no longer wanted her to play her character, Eleanor of Aquitaine, at age 25. Jane is 69. This cannot stand. It is time now to demand, with full voice and conviction, JUSTICE FOR JANE!

Jane’s character is supposed to age from 25 to 80 throughout the series which co-stars 87-year-old Dame Joan Collins who plays a woman who dies at age 40. Denise Richards is also in this shit. ET reports that Jane is miffed at producers for telling her the day before she was supposed to be channeling her inner ingénue that they were going in a different direction.

Starring as Eleanor of Aquitaine opposite Joan Collins, the 69-year-old actress claims she was originally told she would be playing her character from ages 25 to 80 in the series. Seymour says the option to play the character at 25 was taken away from her and handed to a younger actress.

“They told me that only I was going to play myself at 25, but before I even got round to doing it, the day before, without telling me, they found another actress to play me at 25,” she tells The Times. “It’s something I really don’t understand at all because believe it or not, and you can see on Instagram, they don’t even need to do the facial stuff on me. It works just fine.”

“Joan Collins is 87 and she’s supposed to be playing a woman who dies at 40,” she adds.

You heard her, producers, save the “facial stuff” for Denise, Jane doesn’t need it! Here she is on set with Joan and an actor named Tom Berkeley who plays her husband. The show is being filmed in Spain presumably because they got a deep discount on brocade fabrics and wigs made by blind monks.

That’s right, just makeup, wardrobe and hair. And maaaaybe a little eye-lift, Botox and a teeny-tiny boob job, if we’re being honest. Here’s the actress they brought in to play young Jane, Anna Warke.

Suck up all you want Anna, she’s not going to sign your script for you now. Jane, who posed for Playboy magazine two years ago, says the secret to her eternally youthful glow is in part due to her diet. Jane says she maintains her weight thanks in part to eating meals that sound like they were ripped from the pages of a 1950s Good Housekeeping article titled The Good Wife’s Guide to Keeping Trim For Him.

The actress further explains she weighs as much as she did at age 17 thanks to “rigid self-discipline” and consuming only one meal a day that consists of mainly “vegetables, lean fish or a small piece of chicken and, very occasionally, a thin slice of lean steak.”

This is why I will die fat. But Jane’s lying about her diet anyway because here she is eating up Dame Joan and Denise (who for some reason looks like she’s auditioning for Sutton Foster’s role in a reboot of Younger) during a promotional photoshoot.
