Actress Jane Seymour To Speak at CVB Luncheon in Roanoke

Jane Seymour (right), the Hollywood actress who has the lead role in Sarah Elizabeth Timmins' production of "Lake Effects," shot recently at Smith Mountain Lake, will be the featured speaker at the Roanoke Valley Convention & Visitors Bureau's annual meeting and luncheon May 12. The event will be at the Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center ballroom. Seating will be available to the public beginning April 12. The CVB plans to announce the event Tuesday.

Seymour has a huge body of work, mostly lesser-known movies, and her "Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman" was a long-running television series. Her most significant roles have been in the Bond thriller "Live and Let Die," "Somewhere in Time" and "The Wedding Crashers." She has won Emmy and Golden Globe awards, among others and has generally been considered one of Hollywood's most beautiful women.

In "Lake Effects," which is in post-production, Seymour plays the family matriarch, Vivian Tisdale, in a story about two daughters and their mother who embark on a journey of rediscovery after the family patriarch dies.
