Elise McKenna (aka Jane Seymour) turns 60



somewhere_in_time.jpgCall her Elise McKenna from 1980's Somewhere in Time. Or Dr. Quinn if you must, you hopelessly pathetic fans of the '90s. (Or "Kitty Cat," if you're really daring. Or if you're Owen Wilson.) Jane Seymour probably happily answers to any of those monikers.

For the record, I consider Somewhere in Time one of the top 5 romantic movies of the '80s, despite its obvious handicap of having been filmed in Michigan. (Most romantic movie of the '80s? Oh, probably Porky's.)

It's amazing that Seymour didn't do more memorable work in the '80s. Of her 19 other acting credits that decade, I've seen exactly zero of them. Seymour is still active today, with two projects in post-production (Freeloaders and Lake Effects). And she turns the big Six-Oh today.

3. "Come back to me."

2. "Reechard. Reeeeeeechaaaarrrrd!"

1. "There is so much to say... I cannot find the words. Except for these: 'I love you.' "
