From BBC Cult TV:

Jane Seymour, TV's Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, and the actress most often described using the words 'English Rose', will appear in a story arc spanning five episodes of the fourth season of Smallville.

The Comics Continuum website reports that Jane will play Jason Teague's (Jensen Ackles) mother, Genevieve, described as "a rich, powerful Metropolis socialite who may hold the key to Lana's mysterious tattoo".

Here at Cult we love Ms. Seymour - as she's always good for a quote or anecdote.

According to Jane, the script of Dr. Quinn arrived in her hands just as she was facing financial ruin. She had a mountain of bills with no work in sight. Jane believes it was her father's spirit intervening...

"Suddenly it was there, offering me a lifeline, and I believe that somehow my father, who had died two years before, was watching over me and directed the script to me." Spooky.

From Contact Music:

English actress JANE SEYMOUR is set to appear in hit SUPERMAN TV show SMALLVILLE.

The Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman star, 53, will play Metropolis socialite GENEVIEVE opposite TOM WELLING's young Superman in the fourth series of the drama, w'hich is filmed in British Columbia, Canada.

An insider says, "Jane is going to be a real boost to the show. Her character is going to have a pivotal role in the story."

Seymour will follow in the footsteps of her late friend and SOMEWHERE IN TIME co-star CHRISTOPHER REEVE, who appeared in two episodes of the show in 2003 and this year ('04) as DOCTOR VIRGIL SWANN.
