Jane Leeves


Jane Leeves was born on April 18, 1961 in Ilford, Essex, England (in the greater London area) and grew up in East Grinstead. She has one sister, named Kathryn.

Leeves studied ballet and worked as a model, until she made her first appearance in Monty Python's Meaning of Life, playing an angel, though she was uncredited. She also became a regular on The Benny Hill Show, and was cast in the syndicated 1986 sitcom, Throb! Soon after, she got a part on the show Murphy Brown, which led to a recurring role playing a virgin who dates Jerry on the sitcom, Seinfeld. In 1993, she was cast as Daphne Moon on the series Frasier, for which she received an Emmy nomination and won fame in the U.S.

Leeves has also been active making films, including To Live and Die in L.A (1985), James and the Giant Peach (1996), and Music of the Heart (1999).

Leeves married CBS Paramount Television executive Marshall Coben, in 1996, and they have two children – a daughter, Isabella, and a son, Finn. She lives with her family in Southern California.
