Jane Seymour said she briefly quit acting after she was sexually harassed by an unnamed producer around 1972.

The 67-year-old actor, best known for her roles in the James Bond film Live and Let Die and the 1990s TV drama Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, revealed her #MeToo story in an interview with Playboy. She also posed for a spread in the magazine.

Seymour said the incident happened when a powerful producer invited her to his house to watch her screen test for a role. She said the producer told her: “I’ve persuaded everyone that you are the perfect person to play this role. It wasn’t easy. Now it’s your turn.” The producer, whom Seymour did not name, then put his hand on her leg “in the wrong place.” She said she moved away from him and asked him to call her a cab.
