With two Golden Globe Awards, an Emmy, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Jane Seymour is a world-class actress. Best known for her roles in film and television shows such as Somewhere in Time, Live and Let Die, Austenland, and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Seymour has also written several books and supports a variety of charities.

She appeared with singer Nathan Gunn in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s 2011 Christmas concert. “I’d heard how wonderful the choir was, and I knew their reputation,” Seymour shared with LDS Living. “I’ve listened to the choir, and they are exceptional. . . . I love the Good King Wenceslas story [which Seymour read during the concert]. It has a beautiful message of spreading joy by giving more of ourselves. And I loved the fact that the concert included dance as well.”

Seymour said she was also motivated for more personal reasons. “I felt it would be something very special for my children and grandchildren. It’s now a treasured Christmas memory for them—a memory they’ll have forever.”

So was her time with the choir everything she hoped it would be? “Everything and more,” she said. “It was a fantastic experience. I felt like I was part of a big family. There was such joy and enthusiasm and talent that I just got carried away with it. I loved it.”
