The trials and adventures of a female doctor in a wild west town. Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman brought the drama every Saturday night during the '90s. The show was a universal hit too, with episodes airing in over a hundred countries for six seasons.\u00a0 https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?vUHUOS-FISE8 Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman often tugged on fans\u2019 heartstrings, bringing laughter, anger, excitement, and often tears. The show accomplished this all while remaining a family-friendly hit. Much of the credit goes to Dr. Quinn, aka Jane Seymour, and the rest of the cast. So what did they get into after leaving the rugged Colorado Springs? 1. Jane Seymour (Dr. Michaela Quinn) Everett Collection\/YouTube Screenshot Rustic Colorado Springs was a far cry for Dr. Michaela Quinn compared to her hometown of Boston. However, when familial duties and a desire for an adventure called her west, Dr. Quinn ran to it. As a female doctor in the 1800s, Dr. Quinn, the strong-willed and compassionate frontier doc had a lot to prove. Along the way, she just so happened to find love.\u00a0 Jane Seymour became acting royalty, by first borrowing from royalty. Born Joyce Penelope Wilhelmina Frankenberg, the actress chose the stage name Jane Seymour after a previous English Queen. Born to stand out, one of Seymour's notable features is heterochromia, making her right eye brown and her left eye green. Jane\u2019s breakout role was in 1973 as the seductive Solitaire in Roger Moore\u2019s first bond flick, Live and Let Die. DR. QUINN, MEDICINE WOMAN, Jane Seymour, 1993-98, Everett Collection In 1980, Seymour was part of Somewhere in Time opposite Superman himself, the wonderful Christopher Reeve. The film would leave the duo sharing a lifelong friendship.\u00a0Then, Seymour became Dr. Michaela Quinn for this timeless series, which she had to start work for the very next day after being cast. The role netted her a second Golden Globe Award. Also, the series led to her meeting her fourth husband, James Keach. Wild fact: When Seymour first accepted the role, she\u2019d been homeless and $9 million in debt due to horrible housing investments she\u2019d made with her third husband. DR.

She\u2019s still very active in the biz, and she\u2019s had a recurring role as Madelyn on Netflix\u2019s The Kominsky Method since 2019.\u00a0Today she is 70 years old and is a celebrity ambassador for Childhelp, a nonprofit dedicated to helping victims of child abuse and neglect. 2. Chad Allen (Matthew Cooper) YouTube Screenshot Matthew Cooper was reliable, compassionate, a little awkward, yet always determined to help. For younger teen viewers, Matthew Cooper was also the young man of their dreams.\u00a0Chad Allen showed his potential at an early age. He booked a recurring role on the hit show St. Elsewhere starting in 1983. Then, in 1986, Our House was being cast and Allen was sought out. This would be a life-changing role for the actor. DR.

He quickly stole hearts as Matthew Cooper in Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. However, it was the actor\u2019s personal life that made headlines. In 1996 at the age of 21, The Globe tabloid published pictures of Allen kissing another man without their permission. Since then, he\u2019s been an important advocate for LGBT rights and marriage equality. Chad Allen\u2019s last recurring TV role was in 2008 where he proudly served as Dr. Kyle Julian\u2019s love interest on General Hospital: The Night Shift. He retired from acting in 2015 and has a doctorate in psychology. 3. Erika Flores (Colleen Cooper - Seasons 1-2) YouTube Screenshot Colleen Cooper perfectly embodied the troubles of young girls at the time. She faced self-doubt, relationship questions, bullying, and growing pains. All the while trying to follow her bold mother\u2019s trailblazing path.\u00a0 Flores\u2019 sister, Melissa, even played the role of \u2018Missy\u2019 for 10 episodes of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman over the first few seasons. After Dr. Quinn became a huge hit, everyone wanted a generous raise. Rumors were that Flores\u2019 father was especially vocal about her higher pay. Erika Flores was let go midway through Season 3. The actress insists that she wanted to try new things. DR. QUINN, MEDICINE WOMAN, from left: Jane Seymour, Erika Flores, Shawn Toovey (front), Chad Allen, 1993-1998, Ph: Tony Esparza, \u00a9 CBS\/courtesy Everett Collection However, Flores never landed quite as significant a role as Colleen. Her final acting gig was in 2009 in an episode of House. Today she is 41 years old and has been married since 2006 with 2 children. 4. Shawn Toovey (Brian Cooper) YouTube Screenshot Little Brian Cooper helped fans remember the importance of childhood and how it should be protected. Everyone was scared when he suddenly couldn\u2019t see and when he started a fire in town, a lot of people thought he got off easy. Shawn Toovey was young when he joined the Cooper family, but he performed well enough to earn 5 Young Artist Awards, including the Michael Landon Award in 1996. Toovey\u2019s acting mentor was of course his onscreen mother, Jane Seymour. But Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman would be the extent of his acting career, besides returning for the 1999 and 2001 TV Movie reunions.\u00a0 DR.

Today, he\u2019s 38-years-old and works closely with Camp Ronald McDonald, Meals on Wheels, and various child abuse prevention organizations. 5. Jessica Bowman (Colleen Cooper - Seasons 3-6) YouTube Screenshot When Erika Flores left Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, producers recast the role with Jessica Bowman. Despite the recast, Colleen Cooper continued navigating all the problems society could throw at a young girl.\u00a0 Bowman\u2019s career started with a series regular spot on the short-lived show, The Road House in 1994. This gave her the exposure to get cast as the new Colleen. DR. QUINN, MEDICINE WOMAN, Chad Allen, Joe Lando, Jane Seymour, Jessica Bowman, 1993-98, episode 'For Better For Worse' aired 5\/20\/95, (c)CBS Television\/courtesy Everett Collection At first, Bowman faced some backlash from die-hard fans when she took over the role. Yes, she was cute, but did she fit the role? However, Bowman proved herself worthy and rejoined the cast for the TV movies as well. In the next few years, the actress dove on to the big screen, co-starring with the late Paul Walker in the horror flick, Joy Ride.\u00a0 After a couple more acting endeavors, Bowman retired, Today she\u2019s 40-years-old and enjoys a very private life.\u00a0 6. Orson Bean (Loren Bray) YouTube Screenshot Loren Bray was a surly older man, who lost his wife and then his daughter. His daughter died during childbirth to her and Sully\u2019s child, so a deep grudge for Sully never dissipated. This was until Sully risked his own life in a blood transfusion for Loren.\u00a0\u00a0 Fans will remember Bray\u2019s actor, Orson, as a Johnny Carson favorite. Orson Bean was an extremely talented comic. He appeared more than 200 times over the years. His acting career began in the \u201850s and after being blacklisted in the \u201860s, he came back strong with his tenure on Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. Beth Sullivan, the creator of the show didn\u2019t intend for Bray to soften ever, but Orson Bean had an immediate connection with Shawn Toovey on set. This made it impossible not to write their bond into the show.\u00a0 DR. QUINN, MEDICINE WOMAN, from left: Orson Bean, Jane Seymour, 1993, 1993-1998. ph: Tony Esparza \/\u00a9 CBS \/Courtesy Everett Collection Orson Bean acted right up until his death, his last credit being Bruno in the great comedy, Grace, and Frankie in 2020. He died that same year at the age of 91.\u00a0 7. Joe Lando (Byron Sully) YouTube Screenshot Who could forget that smoldering stare from Byron Sully? He helped Dr. Quinn adjust to frontier life. This suave outdoorsman was more than an actor at the time. Additionally, Joe Lando insisted on doing almost all of his own stunts. Lando worked to make the character feel more real, adding that he may never have an opportunity again to get paid to eat worms or run on top of a moving train.\u00a0 He began working in the late \u201880s and gained attention for his heartthrob, Jake Harrison in the soap, One Life to Live. But it was Byron Sully that made the actor a household name and object of every woman\u2019s affections. Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman was one of three pilots offered to him by CBS. His reason for choosing was simple, saying quote, \u201cI got to play a cowboy.\u201d\u00a0 DR. QUINN, MEDICINE WOMAN, from left: Joe Lando, Jane Seymour, 1995, 1993-1998. ph: Bill Reitzel \/\u00a9 CBS \/Courtesy Everett Collection In addition, Lando grew his hair out for the role and the chemistry between him and Seymour was electric. Their relationship became central to the show\u2019s appeal. Some of the best episodes were relationship milestones, a fan favorite being Sully\u2019s proposal.\u00a0 After Dr. Quinn, Lando served as executive producer and lead actor for the short-lived show, High Ground in 2000. In 2014, the page Funny or Die recruited him and the rest of the Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman cast for a parody skit: \u201cDr. Quinn, Morphine Woman.\u201d Lando then joined the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful in 2018. Along with acting, the 59-year-old enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife and four children.\u00a0 Nostalgia as Medicine Nostalgia really is medicine all of its own, so that makes Dr. Quinn doubly powerful. After shows like Little House, television needed another wholesome frontier program, and boy did this one deliver. So is the series done for good? Well in their DVD commentaries, Jane Seymour, Joe Lando, Chad Allen, and Shawn Toovey all expressed interest in a future Dr. Quinn project. So, fingers crossed.\u00a0 What\u2019s an episode of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman that you vividly recall? Did you have a crush on any of the actors?
