Jane Seymour watched ‘Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman’ with her grandchildren amid the coronavirus lockdown.
The 69-year-old actress plays Dr. Michaela Quinn-Sully on the TV drama series, and she revisited the show – which ran on CBS between 1993 and 1998 – during the health crisis.
Jane shared: “The parents don’t usually let them watch TV.
“Every once in a while, they get to either watch ‘War With Grandpa’ or ‘Dr. Quinn’ or something.”
The actress joked that the show feels “very appropriate right now”.
Speaking to Us Weekly magazine, Jane explained: “I couldn’t believe that episode two is about an epidemic. We made that how many years ago? Way ahead of our time.”
The film and TV star has also killed time amid the health crisis by having fun in her garden.
She said: “We have an organic garden at the backside of our property.
“We go down, we pick vegetables, they cook with us, it’s been magic. We have enough space here that everyone is safe.”
Meanwhile, Jane previously admitted that she still gets recognised for her starring role in ‘Dr. Quinn’.
The actress also revealed that Mikhail Gorbachev, the former President of the Soviet Union, was a fan of the drama series.
Asked if she still gets recognised for her role, she replied: “Oh absolutely. And all over the world. It’s in, I think, a hundred countries now.
“You know, when President Gorbachev comes up to me and goes, ‘Oh Dr. Quinn, Dr. Quinn.’ You realise that the show probably had even more of an impact in other countries than it did in America.”
