Jane Seymour Slams Producers After They Cast A Younger Actress In Flashbacks



Starring as Eleanor of Aquitaine, Jane Seymour, 69, 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. 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.
