With over 50 years in the business, Jane Seymour remains a perennial Hollywood fixture. While the ever-youthful actor usually plays younger, she’s finally getting to embrace her 68 years, courtesy of a guest-starring role in season two of Netflix’s acclaimed series The Kominsky Method, and at the invitation of its creator Chuck Lorre.
