There’s nothing Jane Seymour loves more than spending time with her three grandkids, Rowan, Willa and Luna. Jane frequently documents all of their sweetest photos together on Instagram, and it’s not uncommon for her to gush about her amazing life as a doting grandma — or as she goes by, “Oma.”
“The grandkids, they’re wonderful,” the High Strung actress exclusively told Closer in February 2020. “Actually one grandkid, Willa … she’s [already] won two acting awards for a movie her mother [Katherine Flynn] has directed and written … it’s a short movie called Towns, it’s great.”
Jane’s granddaughter Willa may be young, but she’s clearly excited to follow in her grandma’s footsteps. The red-haired cutie is “a natural” at acting, according to Jane, and she always gives an “unbelievable” performance. However, when Willa grows up, Jane revealed she wants to be a ballerina. That’s why the Live and Let Die alum took her granddaughter to the 2018 premiere of her movie High String Free Dance, where she plays a dancer.
“She’s having her first proper ballet lesson, and she got to be on the red carpet and she got people flashing [cameras] and everything,” Jane said in another interview with Closer, pointing out how Willa isn’t even fazed by the glitz and glamour of showbiz. “You know, she couldn’t even conceive that that’s what Oma does. She just knows me as grandma.”
As Willa gets her bearings in the entertainment industry, she can count on her grandma to give her the best advice. One thing Jane regrets is how she handled herself as a young actress, explaining she was an “avid people pleaser” at the time she was first rising to fame.
“When I was younger, [I was] always trying to be what I thought I ought to be, or what somebody else thought I needed to be. When I was 20, I realized it was time to get on with it myself,” she shared. “[Now] I paint, I produce, I do my own hair and makeup, I design and make clothes, I make and design jewelry, I write books, I public speak, I fundraise.”
The Golden Globe winner has come a long way since she first broke out into Hollywood in the ’70s. There’s no doubt she’s going to pass her wisdom down to her grandkiddos!
