Ah, to be young, British and Jane Leeves. For a twentysomething comedic actress beginning to make a name for herself in America, what could be better than having your own genuine cult following? "I was in the doctor's office and this man screams out across the room, 'Aghhh! You're the vurrgin !' " an embarrassed Leeves recalled of her hilarious two-episode stint on "Seinfeld" last season--in which her pristine character was "deflowered" by John F. Kennedy Jr.

Janes Leeves is asked this question a lot these days: What's it like to work with Moose, the scene-stealing Jack Russell terrier who plays the adorable Eddie on NBC's hit comedy "Frasier"? "It's actually improved," she replies good-naturedly. "He's sort of a scrappy little thing. He didn't really care about affection. You could pet him and make a fuss of him and he didn't care." Until the Barbie Doll incident.

British Equity has my vote! Please stop sending Americans to London ("A British Protest of a U.S. Invasion," by David Gritten, Aug. 26). However, it must be quid pro quo. Let's begin with Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Bob Hoskins, Jane Leeves, Eric Idle, John Cleese, Ringo Starr, Pierce Brosnan, Peter O'Toole, Sean Connery, Jonathan Pryce, Kate Winslet.... How silly it all is. MARY WILLARD Encino Our Glenn Close portraying Blanche DuBois in a London production of "A Streetcar Named Desire" is as fair as England's Vivien Leigh playing the part of Blanche in the '50s film.

Jane Seymour will not be in "A Christmas Carol" when the play opens at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood tonight. The actress, perhaps remembered best as the star of the TV series "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman," had to bow out of the Charles Dickens holiday favorite "after contracting a severe bronchial infection," the show's publicist said. "She felt that she wouldn't be able to perform to the best of her abilities and be able to give the audiences 100% while suffering this illness," according to the statement.
