Seymour Travels To England After Mother Passes Away
Actress Jane Seymour's bid for dancing glory on TV in America has taken a stumble - the woman who inspired her to sign up for the current season of Dancing With The Stars has died.
Seymour will miss Tuesday's (02Oct07) live results show as she travels to England to be with her family following the death of her elderly mother.
The 92-year-old died in England on Monday (01Oct07) due to complications from a stroke.
Seymour recently admitted she was inspired to take part in Dancing With The Stars after her ailing mum became excited when the British beauty told her of her plans - and uttered her first words since the stroke.
In a statement, Seymour says, "My mother survived incredible challenges... Her health issues that she never complained about... three and a half years in a Japanese concentration camp in World War II and the loss of her husband John, who was the love of her life.
"However, she was always a beacon of love and hope for all she met and especially for my sisters Anne and Sally and for our entire family. Her spirit was indomitable and will continue to live forever in our hearts."
