Jane Seymour Calls Out 'Glow & Darkness' Producers After Being Replaced With a Another Actress To Play Her Character in Flashbacks

Jane Seymour wasn’t happy with some of the producers on her upcoming limited series, Glow & Darkness.

The nearly 70-year-old actress revealed in a new interview that she was originally supposed to play the same role at all the ages, starting at 25.

However, Jane learned that before she could film any of the scenes at the younger age range for Eleanor of Aquitaine, another actress was cast.

“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,” she tells The Times.

Jane added that it was “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,” she added about her co-star.

Glow & Darkness, also starring Denise Richards, focuses on the life of Saint Francis of Assisi, while also bringing in other historical figures including Joan‘s Adelaide of Maurienne, Richard the Lionheart, and and Pope Urban II.

The series is expected to debut on Netflix next year.
